2012 collection from the American Idol sensation. Steadfast revisits the best of 2010's release Tried And True, featuring selected cuts from that record alongside a newly recorded, original song, "Bring Back My Love." Rounding out the disc are thoughtful covers of Neil Sedaka's "Breaking Up is Hard to Do," and Connie Francis', "Who's Sorry Now." Steadfast is an extension of the journey Clay Aiken began when he recorded Tried And True interpreting some of his all-time favorite songs from the '50s and '60s that he grew up listening to as a child. After putting some distance between himself and the release of Tried And True, he realized his emotional connection with the music remained so strong he felt compelled to return to the album and highlight the tracks he was most proud of.
From the Artist
"I stand by this recording `steadfastly,' which is why I chose the title and how I feel about moving forward in my career in general - being focused and steadfast" he says.
