On New Year’s Day in 2013, Kris Allen and his then-­pregnant wife Katy were in a head-­on collision that left the singer/songwriter/guitarist with a career-­threatening shattered wrist. In the two years that followed, he underwent three surgeries, re-­‐learned how to play guitar (despite regaining just 30 percent movement in the damaged wrist), recorded his third album, and toured relentlessly—including a two-­month-­long stint that started just one week after his accident. The American Idol season 8 winner ultimately retreated from the whirlwind and immersed himself in a songwriting spell that yielded more than 70 new tracks. Culled from that collection of songs, Allen’s fourth full-­length album Letting You In finds the Nashville-based artist delivering his most intimate and dynamic work to date.
The follow-­up to 2014’s Horizons, Letting You In builds off the soulful musicality Allen first showcased with his platinum-­selling 2009 single “Live Like We’re Dying.” But with its sophisticated songcraft and vulnerable lyrics, Letting You In reaches a new depth of feeling that infuses each track with undeniable emotional power. “Looking back, I think I tried to put off dealing with my feelings around the accident for as long as I could,” says Allen. “But in the past year I’ve realized how much it all affected me, and that definitely came out in the writing of this album.”
