XFactor: Union J to release debut single on RCA Records in June

The X Factor 2012 Week 6 - Union J

X Factor stars Union J have signed a record deal with RCA records and will be releasing their first single in June.

The group have already been in the the studio and will have an album out by the end of the year.

The boys, who are also part of the X Factor live tour line up, said earlier this month: “Recording or first single on Monday! So sorry Belfast but we have to change the gig date, things are moving so fast for us! We’ll be back! X”

Lead singer Jaymi revealed that the group have had a “crazy” few weeks after the show finished last year.

He said: “The dream was to get a record deal and now we’ve got a deal.”

And the group’s George Shelley confessed it was nice to be back to normal life over Christmas ahead of the tour.

He said: “It’s been nice to have some family time, we’ve been in a bubble for three months. ”

But they're not back on tour with their fellow finalists, with Jaymi adding: “We’re going to be spending like six weeks together so we’re looking forward to the reunion.”

Union J finished fourth in last year's competition and will be working with the same who has signed runner up Jahmene Douglas and past X Factor stars including Alexandra Burke and JLS.
