Pia Toscano of 'American Idol' Signs with Interscope

Peter Kramer/NBC(LOS ANGELES) -- American Idol cast-off Pia Toscano has signed a recording contract with Interscope Records, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed Tuesday.  Toscano will record her debut album, which is set for release later this year.  

Last month, Antonina Armato of the production team Rock Mafia – who worked with all of the finalists this past season on Idol – told ABC News Radio, "[Pia] just got signed to Interscope. We just finished a song with her called 'Counterfeit,' which is phenomenal...and we did another song for her as well."

For now, the newly-signed artist will release her debut single, "This Time," on July 12.  The track will also be included in Toscano's set during the Summer 2011 American Idol Live! Tour.
