Joe McElderry has announced his fourth studio album
Although probably not referenced as a major winner from the X Factor UK Joe has gone on to carve out a pretty steady career for himself having just changed direction from his initial SyCo agenda.
The 2009 champion, who beat Olly Murs and Stacey Solomon in the sixth season finale, was dropped by Simon Cowell’s record label after his debut album Wide Awake failed to match the impressive sales figures of previous winners Alexandra Burke and Leona Lewis.
But within months he won Popstar To Operastar and signed a new deal with Decca, releasing second album Classic in August 2011 and seeing it overtake Wide Awake‘s sales in a matter of weeks.
His new collection, which will come nine months after his festive collection Classic Christmas, will be released on September 17 with the name Here’s What I Believe.
He said in a video message: “I’m currently recording my fourth album – it’s so exciting.
“I can’t wait for you to hear all of the stuff. It’s been going on since around January time, so it’s been a long time coming for me.”
The record is available to pre-order now.
