Record Deal for American Idol’s Kris Allen

UPDATE: Lambert tells E! Online that he has a deal lined up with RCA.

Adam Lambert may still be weighing a future with or without Queen, but Kris Allen is already plugging ahead with his career.

Less than three weeks after winning , the Season 8 winner has officially scored his record deal. His contract with 19 Recordings and Jive Records falls in line with deals already made with Jordin Sparks and David Archuleta, two other Idol contestants.

“Everyone’s been asking me what it’s going to sound like. It will be very similar to what you heard from me on the show — definitely in the pop/rock genre. I can’t wait to get started!,” Allen revealed in a statement.

Kris will most likely juggle studio time with Idol‘s 50-city tour to make the fall release of his album. His performance of “No Boundaries” currently sits at #23 on Billboard’s Hot 100.
