"I'm a little nervous but so excited for the opportunity," Stefano tells E! News. "It will be almost a year to the day since I was last on."

Langone, who finished seventh last season after being a wild card addition to the top 13 courtesy of big fan Jennifer Lopez, says that his style has changed a bit since his days of singing mainly R&B on the show.

"I think a lot of people will be surprised because it's a new sound, but I still have the same soul," he promises.

And "I'm on a Roll" about sums it up: The singer, whose appearance on Idol came two years after he was hit by a drunk driver and seriously injured, is feeling extra appreciative about his recent success.

Also since being on the show, the Seattle-area native has relocated to Los Angeles and served as best man at fellow finalist James Durbin's wedding on Dec. 31.

"I'm on a Roll" hits iTunes on April 24 and Hollywood Records is planning to release Langone's full album this summer.
