For the first time in three years, Phillip Phillips is back with new music.

The American Idol season 11 winner released his new single “Miles” on Friday, his first since settling a lawsuit against the show’s producer 19 Entertainment.

“It has been a tough three years, but it feels so good to have this song out,” Phillips, 26, tells People exclusively. “We have so much more to come.”

In January 2015, Phillips filed a petition with the California Labor Commissioner to get out of his contract, claiming that 19 Entertainment and its affiliated companies “manipulated” him.
