New music from Kris Allen is always a treat, although the original American Idol winner has kept us waiting longer than usual for his latest single Don’t Stop Dancing. The track is Kris’s first piece of new music since 2018 single When All the Stars Have Died.
Don’t Stop Dancing is co-written by Kris, Andy Skib and Quinn Redmond – with the latter pair also producing. With lyrics that include “You got a fire inside your soul / And they’ll call in while you sound the alarm / To turn it into smoke, but listen / Don’t let that go / Steal the light in every room / When the darkness finds you…” the track is brimming with a sense of hopefulness and positivity.
Skib and Redmond’s production plays with earworming percussion, pairing Kris’s warm vocals with that and up-tempo guitar which gives the release a breezy, summery tone.
Hopefully this will mark the start of a new album chapter for Kris. Stay connected with him on Instagram to keep in the loop.
