James Arthur has admitted that he is ‘so proud’ of the work he has done on his debut album.
The Middlesborough born singer won the X Factor in December last year and after he toured the Uk with his fellow contestants, he settled down and hit the studio to start work on some new tracks.
James has worked with an array of producers and songwriters, in the UK and America and this week he’s been recording with Emeli Sande’s collaborator Naughty Boy. Real name Shahid Khan, NB has also worked with Britain’s Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon, X Factor boyband JLS, Lily Allen, Alexandra Burke and US diva Jennifer Hudson.
James is enjoying the process and tweeted:
“So @NaughtyBoyMusic is the man @waynehector is the man and i couldn’t be more proud of all the work I’ve put into this album already #LOVE”
Naughty Boy added:
“Sick session w/ @jamesarthur23 & @waynehector #vibesy #sourceit”
Meanwhile, James’ pal Jahmene Douglas has also been working on his new material but this week he took some time out of recording and attended another showbiz event.
The handsome singer was the runner up on last year’s series of the ITV show and last night he performed at The Katie Piper Ball. While there he met Eastenders star Barbara Windsor and tweeted:
“Can’t believe I’ve just talked with the legendary Barbara Windsor ! #carryon <3”
The singer also spent time with Katie and added this picture with the caption:
“Singing at the Katie Piper ball tonight <3 love this woman x ”
However Douglas is missing his old pals and wrote:
“Really really reaaally missing the xfactor bunch :-(”
Jahmene and James will release their debut albums later this year. Will you be buying a copy? Leave your comments below…
