“Signing this new deal with Sony is one of the proudest moments of my life. After the highs of X Factor I sank to the darkest places I’ve ever been. But after overcoming addiction I finally found myself in a place where I was ready and able to create the album I have always wanted to. I then spent three years pouring blood, sweat and tears plus all my darkness and my hope into this album. I have come home to Sony but I’m in control this time.” Produced by Jim Eliot (Ellie Goulding, Kylie Minogue & Will Young) and mixed by Christopher Elms (Bjork, Alanis, Anohni) the new album is bound to surprise perhaps even the harshest critics. It is due for release in spring 2018.
