X Factor: Jahmene Douglas teases debut album, out May 27

The X Factor 2012 - Jahmene Douglas

X Factor runner up Jahmene Douglas will follow Marcus Collins with a quick release of his debut album.

Jahmene finished second to James Arthur in last year's final and was quickly picked up by label bosses, with RCA records signing a soul singer.

Currently on the live X Factor tour, Jahmene has revealed his album will be available to pre-order this week and will be released on May 27.

He said: “The album will be out in May time. It is quite fast I think, but if things aren’t working out I will obviously push the date back.

“I have been in the studio and starting to plan things, but I don’t want to say too much because a lot of it is a surprise."

Speaking to the Swindon Advertiser, Jahmene continued: “I am hoping the album will be about real music, credible, authentic, honest, true to me and a sound that hasn’t been around for a while and hopefully I can bring that in an album.

“It is crazy to think I will have an album out this year, because there is the X Factor platform and when you make an album there is a whole other platform."

And he gushed about the show: “I have got so much from this X Factor platform, to know that I am going to be moving on to something bigger it is just insane and I know that I can help people now.

“The journey that I am on at the moment is just beginning."
