X Factor: Craig Colton teases new ‘indie’ album
Craig Colton has revealed that he will be hitting the recording studio this week, to begin work on his debut album.
The Liverpudlian star was eliminated from The X Factor in week seven and will soon embark on the show’s nationwide tour, however before he starts rehearsals for it, he is keen to get moving on his new material.
During an interview on This Morning today, Craig revealed that he was starting work on his new songs soon and explained:
We’ve all been really busy, gigging everywhere and then starting writing and recording. This week is the first week [in the recording studio].
On what style we can expect to hear on his first album, the former biscuit factory worker added:
It’s very indie and it’s very acoustic and it’s got a nice little hint of jazz.
But Craig admitted that he does feel a great deal of pressure to get his music out quickly, as he wants to release the album before people forget who he is. He continued:
The show gives you this massive platform and when it finishes the weekly pressure is gone, but there is more pressure because if we want to come back and do something, now is the time.
As yet Colton has not been signed to a record label, though it is expected that SYCO will make their announcements this month on which stars they will pick up.
