The first single from the 17-year-old, "Tattoo," will be released by Jive Aug. 27, Billboard.com reported Sunday.
Sparks' first album is set for a November release, just a little more than a month after the “American Idols Live Tour” ends.
"I'm feeling a little bit of pressure because it's coming up so fast," Sparks told Billboard.com. "But I have full confidence that we'll finish it by the time we have to."
She also will appear on Fox’s Teen Choice Awards Aug. 26.
