“Home,” Phillip Phillips’ first single and American Idol coronation song, has become a bona fide success, even serving as the unofficial anthem of the Summer Olympics. Many have savored its Mumford & Sons-ian goodness, but the next question is: Can he keep the success going?

If you’ve heard the next single to be released called “Gone, Gone, Gone,” you’ll know the answer to that is a resounding “yes.”

P2 told Yahoo! Canada Music recently, “It’s a good little love song. Todd Clark and Derek Fuhrmann, they wrote [it] and brought it to me and I thought it was a beautiful song. The more I’ve played it live, the more I’ve made it more my own and people seem to really connect with it and really enjoy it so I’m excited to see how that song’s going to do.”

There’s no denying Phillip’s status as a heartthrob either, so with lyrics like, “And I would do it for you, for you Baby I’m not moving on I love you long after you’re gone,” this single is sure to make make teens, tweens, and beyond swoon.

Entertainment Weekly praised the song, writing, “It’s melodic and memorable and could easily cement Phillips’ status as a relevant 2013 artist — not just an American Idol one-off.

Have you listened to his whole album? Which song do you think should be Phillip’s next single?
