American Idol season 10 alum Pia Toscano is closing out 2016 with the release of her new EP Belong, which she describes as a "passion project."
"After a four-year long rollercoaster ride, I began writing and recording the most personal and honest music I have ever done," she tells Billboard of the EP, which dropped Friday (Dec. 16) on iTunes. "Each song is a personal experience of mine that I finally get to share with the world."
Belong features five tracks -- including the single "You'll Be King" (produced by Matt Hutchinson and written by Kevin Martin of Candlebox and Toscano), which she released earlier this year. The title track, written with Bryan Ellis and produced by Keith Harrison, captures what Toscano calls the "most vulnerable and uncertain time of my life."
