Sam Woolf has independently released a debut album called "Pretend."

The 18-year-old performer was a Top 5 finalist on "American Idol's" thirteenth season.

Pretend was produced, engineered and mixed by Grammy-winner Danny Blume, and features backing vocals by Curtis King and Cindy Mizzelle.

The record is available for purchase online at CD Baby and will go on sale at iTunes at a later date.

"Sam is a natural singer whose soul and passion are undeniable in every note he sings. Sam's beautiful, heartfelt lyrics, delivery, melodic instinct, and rock-solid guitar playing made this record a joy to produce," Blume said in a statement Friday.
