The "American Idol" Season 9 winner's first single "Live It Up" is to debut on radio's "On Air with Ryan Seacrest" Oct. 13, while the entire album will become available Nov. 16.

"Putting out an album on a major label is truly a dream come true," the 24-year-old singer-songwriter, a native of Mount Prospect, Ill., said in a statement. "I'm excited for all the people who supported me throughout 'Idol' to hear what I can do with my own songs. The album shows a whole different side of me and I'm so proud of it."

RCA Records described the set as "an engaging blend of rootsy pop, rock and folk, anchored by DeWyze's soulful, rough-edged voice and bright-sounding acoustic guitar."

"I grew up listening to Simon & Garfunkel, The Mamas & the Papas, Cat Stevens, and Kris Kristofferson," DeWyze said. "I love hard-edged vocals over pretty melodies -- that's what I'm about. I really admire guys like Dave Matthews and Ray LaMontagne, and to now be on the same record label as them -- it just blows my mind."
