Nick Lachey is at it again. And by "it" I mean "recording a solo album at a studio in Burbank." This time around, though, Nick is going for something a little lighter than his achy heartbreak ballad album, What's Left of Me. For his next effort Nick is teaming up with the Underdogs, the production team behind the Dreamgirls music, to create his new sound. I somehow doubt that he'll be singing showtunes (unfortunate, I know), but the Underdogs did say it would involve "big, huge chroruses" and "a message-type of song with good lyrics." Wow, uh, sounds...booming and heart-warming. Wait a minute, perhaps it will be showtuney after all.
