The American Idols have once again moved the release dates for their debut albums. Ruben Studdard, the winner of the second season contest on the Fox series "American Idol," has set a Nov. 11 release date for his debut "Soulful" (J Records), while runner-up Clay Aiken's still-untitled debut will be released Oct. 14 on RCA.

As previously reported, both albums were originally slated for release on the same day in August, then both were moved to different dates in September.

So far, Studdard has laid down tracks with Fat Joe and R. Kelly for "Soulful," while Aiken has been working with producers and songwriters including Steve Mac, Cliff Magness, Desmond Child, Steve Morales and Rick Nowels.

The pair's debut singles, both of which were released June 10, landed in the top two positions of Billboard's Hot 100. Aiken's "This Is the Night" stayed at No. 1 for two weeks, and Studdard's "Flying Without Wings" spent the same time at No. 2.
