“American Idol” graduate Clay Aiken will deliver a double whammy Nov. 16 with the release of a new album and his first book.

The as-yet-untitled RCA set is a holiday collection, while the Random House inspirational memoir “Learning to Sing: Hearing the Music in Your Life” explores Aiken’s journey from special education teacher to pop star.

Coinciding with both releases are a handful of TV appearances, including “Larry King Live” (Nov. 15), “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” (Dec. 6) and Aiken’s one-hour Christmas special on NBC (Dec. 8), to be preceded earlier in the day by a visit to “The Today Show.”

The singer is scheduled to begin a five-week holiday tour with a full orchestra next month.
