Kris Allen album snippets hit the Web early: Surprise!

Posted on

Kris Allen’s self-titled debut CD won’t go on sale until Nov. 17, but you can get an early preview right now at Amazon.com’s German branch. As of today, the online retailer is streaming roughly 30-second snippets of every song from the American Idol winner’s album.

This isn’t the first time a foreign Amazon.com site has allowed consumers to hear an album long before its release date. Similar snippets were recently posted for Bob Dylan’s Christmas in the Heart and the New Moon soundtrack.

Head over to Amazon.de to get a taste of Kris Allen’s new tunes, then let us know: How do you like them? Any early favorite tracks?
