X Factor winner James Arthur set to release new single in May

James Arthur (X Factor)

X factor winner James Arthur is set to release a new single in the coming months.

James, who triumphed over Jahmene Douglas on last years series, previously said he didn't want to wait around like past winners.

James said: "I'll be really disappointed if I haven't got any music out by April, I don't understand why X Factor winners disappear for a year before releasing their first album.

"I'll sleep in the studio if I have to."

It looks like James will miss his own April deadline, but not by far.

The X Factor champ has been busy writing and recording since the show finished last year and could have a new track in the charts by May.

"Some of the songs have got a real Boyz II Men r‘n’b vibe to them," a supposed insider said this month. “There are also some quite emotional tracks. He’s written about his family, in particular about how close he is to his sisters."

Speaking to Heatworld, the source said of James' upcoming debut album: “He’s surprisingly sensitive and has really poured his heart and soul into his lyrics."

Sounds good to us! Will be rushing out to buy James' record?
