The American Idol Season 5 runner-up, long known for long brunette locks, traded in her brown mane for a bleach blonde rocker look in new promo shots for her upcoming sophomore album, Unbroken — due out October 6.

“My music is a little more edgy so that inspired me to be adventurous.”

“I’ve never dyed my hair before so this was a pretty drastic change,” Katharine reveals in the August 17 issue of PEOPLE. “I’ve always been known as a brunette but I’ve been thinking about it for a long time and it kind of just fit with all of the searching with the music and experimenting that I would do the same thing with my look.”
