"These musical gems have stood the test of time, and I am incredibly proud and privileged to have had the opportunity to make them my own," Aiken says. "I stand by this recording 'steadfastly,' which is why I chose the title and how I feel about moving forward in my career in general – being focused and steadfast."

Aiken will also be back on television soon as a contestant on the new season of The Celebrity Apprentice, premiering February 19th on NBC.
