On Wednesday American Idol's James Durbin Working on Debut Album was a top story. Here is the recap: (hennemusic) American Idol rocker James Durbin now has his record deal. Wind-up Records announced Tuesday it has signed Durbin and that his debut album will be released in November.

The 22-year old Santa Cruz native rocked the stage of Idol every week with his signature high-pitched scream and touched the hearts of America throughout the season as he opened up about his Asperger's and Tourette's syndrome. Fans and critics alike flocked to Durbin in praise and inspiration as his love of rock prevailed, despite Idol's producers attempts to influence a change in his course.

James is mid-way through recording his debut album with Grammy nominated producer, famed rock producer Howard Benson (Daughtry, P.O.D, 3 Doors Down). "Wind-up Records isn't a label, it's a family and I wanted to be a part of that," says Durbin. "They are true music fans that want to see me have a long career as an artist. I couldn't have asked for more when signing a record deal." - more on this story
