Shayne Ward, described as the “original X Factor hunk” is set to release a brand new album and single in April.
The former X Factor winner was quite successful when he won the competition back in 2006, selling over 3 million albums.
However, we haven’t heard much from the singer since, until now.
He’s returning with a new album entitled Closer which is available to download on the 12th of April and available to physically buy on the 13th of April.
Shayne used website Pledge Music UK to get the record out with Mike Stock having produced the tracks.
Shayne said today: “I am thrilled to be working with Mike on this new record. His track record speaks for itself.
“Growing up, I heard so many great songs that he worked on and now get the chance to be with him the studio.”
Name dropping, Mike added: “Having recorded world class vocalists such as Sir Cliff Richard, Sir Paul McCartney, Donna summer, Kylie and Rick Astley, Shayne’s vocal talent is up there with the best.”
Shayne’s album Closer and lead single My Heart Would Take You Back are available to pre-order now.
