Phillip Phillips has posted on Instagram a sneak peek of his new single “Raging Fire,” which he’ll be performing next week on American Idol.

As Phillip has said in interviews discussing his new material, the song is definitely a bit more rocking than his previous songs, but it still retains the feel of his songs “Gone Gone Gone” and “Home.” The song features a string session and heavy percussion, as Phillip sings, “Come out come out come out/you turn my soul into a raging fire.”

“Raging Fire” will be included on Phillip’s sophomore album, due out this spring. The song will be available on Monday.

And in other American Idol alumni news, season 12 champ Candice Glover‘s debut album Music Speaks, which was delayed several times before finally being released last week, has debuted at #14 on the Billboard album chart. Only one Idol winner’s debut album has entered the chart at a lower rung: season 9 champ Lee DeWyze‘s Live It Up, which came in at #19.

However, Candice’s album has the dubious honor of posting the lowest first-week sales of any Idol winner’s debut project.
