Winner of The X Factor 2010 Matt Cardle has told fans to expect a "personal" album when he releases his debut record later this year. Revealing to the Daily Star the former painter and decorator (and band front man) revealed he has been writing the songs himself together with a number of writing stars.
Among the top writers that make up a "crack team" of musical talent assembled by Simon Cowell include Adele's song writer, who previously won the Ivor Novello Songwriter of the Year award.
28-year-old Matt told the tabloid last week: "I’m writing with James Walsh from Starsailor and Eg White and can’t wait for people to hear my album."
He added: "There’s a lot of personal songs on it."
Matt's debut album is expected to be released in November.
