American Idol Season 8 winner Kris Allen returned with his sophomore effort, 2012's Thank You Camellia. Purportedly named after his house in Los Angeles, the album followed up the singer/songwriter's self-titled, post-AmIdol release. The second time around, Allen worked with a handful of producer/songwriters, including former Sugarcult singer Tim Pagnotta, Nasri & Adam Messinger, and Boots Ottestad, among others. Featured is the lead-off single "The Vision of Love."
