Phillip Phillips announces new single ‘Raging Fire’

The singer will perform the track on American Idol

Platinum-selling recording artist and American Idol Season 11 winner Phillip Phillips will return to the Idol stage to perform his new single, “Raging Fire,” on Thursday, March 6th (8-9 pm ET/PT tape-delayed) on FOX. Written by Phillips, and recorded in New York City with production by Gregg Wattenberg, “Raging Fire” will be available for digital download and streaming via digital subscription services on Monday, March 3rd. “Raging Fire” is the first single off Phillips’ sophomore album which will be released this spring on 19 Entertainment/Interscope Records.

Following his Idol performance, Phillips will headline his first tour of Canada. The 15 city tour kicks off March 8th in Halifax and makes one U.S. stop in Waukegan, IL on March 18th.

One of the biggest singles of 2012, the quadruple-platinum “Home” announced Phillip Phillips as a singer/guitarist of both rare authenticity and massive pop appeal. Centering on the American Idol season 11 winner’s rich, raspy vocals and masterful guitar skills, “Home” served as the lead single from The World from the Side of the Moon – a platinum plus-selling album that debuted #4 on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart and #1 on the Billboard Rock Album chart upon its November 2012 release.

Phillips’s widely acclaimed debut also features the platinum single “Gone, Gone, Gone” and the Phillips’ penned “Where We Came From,” as well as a host of numbers that flaunt the 23-year-old Georgia native’s songwriting chops. Phillips spent most of 2013 on the road  – with Matchbox 20, headlining  a college tour and he brought his rootsy brand of rock-and-roll to arenas around the country as the opening act for singer/songwriter superstar John Mayer’s Born and Raised tour. Phillips took a break from recording his sophomore album in New York to perform at the NFL Tailgate Party at Super Bowl XLVIII.
