Wow, I forgot how strange-looking he is. Anyway, despite his confusing face and unlistenable vocals, James Arthur does seem to be getting a fair chance at success according to Maximum Pop's report. His album has been produced by Naughty Boy, a former Future Pop artist himself, and Labrinth and Emeli Sandé have also been involved. The lead single is called You're Nobody Til Somebody Loves You and we should be hearing it soon, as the video has already been filmed. If he's performing on the first X Factor live show (as most winners do) we can expect a release date of early October, which seems reasonable if the video debuts in the next few weeks.
