Frames (Lee DeWyze album)
Frames is the fifth studio album by Lee DeWyze. It is the second album that he has released since he won the ninth season of American Idol. Thirteen tracks are included on the standard release, while acoustic versions of each song are available on the deluxe edition. DeWyze has six solo writing credits on the album and was a co-writer on all of the other songs, collaborating with Drew Pearson, Julian Emery, Justin Irvin, Shelly Fairchild, Rick Seibold, Matthew Wilder and Toby Gad. DeWyze also served as one of the album's producers, along with Pearson, Emery, Seibold, Wilder, Gad, Phil Allen and Dr Zero.
RCA Records dismissed DeWyze from his contract in 2011, due to the poor performance of his previous album, Live It Up. Undaunted by this setback, DeWyze set out to write music that would be more in line with his own vision, feeling that RCA had not understood him as an artist. Having previously released two independent albums, he went back to the folk rock sound of those albums, while also incorporating elements of pop, rockabilly and bluegrass. Attracting Vanguard Records with his new music, he signed with the label in early 2013 and was given creative freedom while working on Frames. The album was released on August 20, 2013 to positive reviews. It debuted at number 116 on the Billboard 200 Chart and at number 38 on the Top Rock Albums Chart.
"Silver Lining" was released as the lead single off of the album in April 2013, and a lyric video of the song was released in July. The second single, "Fight" was released in September 2013 and the music video was released in March 2014. Live in-studio videos have been made for both songs, as well as for "Stay Away" and "You Don't Know Me." Katie Stevens, who had competed on the ninth season of American Idol with DeWyze, accompanies him in the video for "Stay Away."
