X Factor's Melanie McCabe has released a debut single.

The song is called You Make Me Feel Brand New, a reworking of The Stylistics' track, and is out to buy now.

The Irish singer auditioned for the X Factor FOUR times, making it as far as judges' houses in both 2011 and 2013.

Melanie was controversially axed by Nicole in series 10 and vowed at the time to not try again.

"It’s my fourth time in X Factor. If I don’t get through I won’t do it, or another talent show again," she said back before judges' houses. “I wasn’t even sure about doing it this year, Most famous singers haven’t done them so I suppose the next step would be to do it the way other singers do.”

And Melanie has done just that, releasing a debut single on her own which is now available to download on both Amazon HERE and iTunes HERE.

Melanie signed copies of the single at HMV earlier in the week and is set to play a concert at Dublin's The National Concert Hall on April 5 (tickets available here).
