Tulisa to release debut solo single when X Factor 2012 auditions start in May

X Factor judge Tulisa is set to release her debut solo single in May, it has been revealed today.

The singer's former boyfriend and producer of the song, Fazer, told MTV that the track - called We Are Young' would be out for download on May 7.

It's the first song from Tulisa, who signed a solo record deal early last year but delayed her album due to commitments on The X Factor.

Splitting from Fazer has delayed the song even further, but Tulisa finally finished filming the video for the track this month.

Speaking about the record, Fazer said: "It's a really big dance record [with] a great message behind it. ‘Forgive us for what we have done, ’cause we are young’. That’s it. Simple!"

The planned launch date also ties in with the start of The X Factor auditions, giving Tulisa a great platform to start her solo career if she returns to the show.
