Phililp Phillips has been busy in the studio for the last month and a half working on his sophomore album and released the first single called "Raging Fire".

He tells Billboard magazine,

We kind of have a [release] date but nothing is concrete yet. It's a completely different album that's going to show a different side of me."

He goes on to say that the title track, "Raging Fire", doesn't sound like the rest of the album and describes it as a love song but tells Billboard it's "a little heavier" and "it's got a little bit of an edgier side to it."

Give the song a listen here and let us know what you think about it by leaving us your comments in the section below.

Phillip will be performing the song live for the first time on Thursday's American Idol results show and admits,

I hate live television, and I'm gonna be scared to death when I get up there. It's always a little nerve-wracking."
