For weeks American Idol fans have been speculating on whether Haley Reinhart signed a deal with Jimmy Iovine’s Interscope Records. The clues have been stacking up for weeks —  from her contract with Red Light Management to that Amazon page announcing a “new release.” Recently, an Idol insider spilled to Lindsey Parker from Reality Rocks that those rumors about Haley’s contract were real, and that an official announcement will be made very soon.

In a recent interview with Reality Rocks, Haley did her best not to spill the beans. She said, "I'm going to be saying whatever I gotta say [about the album] pretty soon enough, I just don't know if I can or not. But things are hopefully working out pretty well! In a perfect world, I would love [my album] to be bluesy, soulful, funky — a lot of stuff incorporated. I think it's possible!"

So for those of you keeping score, “I think it’s possible” is Haley-code for “it’s totally happening!” Are you as excited as we are to hear some original tracks from Haley’s debut album?
