X Factor's Shayne Ward is back with a brand new album.

Described as the "original X Factor hunk" in a press release that landed in our inbox this morning, Shayne is all set to release a brand new record and single in April.

The former X Factor winner had quite the successful run when he first won the competition back in 2005, selling over 3 million albums.

Now he's returning with new LP Closer out on April 12 (Download) and 13 (Physical).

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."

In some name dropping to rival Sir Tom Jones on The Voice, 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.
