The Fray's Joe King collaborates with American Idol winner Kris Allen

In between dates on his band's current tour (which will be making its Denver stop next weekend at the Mile High Music Festival), Fray singer/guitarist Joe King found some time to hit to hit the studio with Kris Allen, the winner of last season's American Idol, to record an as-yet-titled song for the latter's debut platter.
