X Factor starlet Fleur East arrived at the Wave 105 studios to talk to presenter Andy Jackson about her upcoming new album, ‘Love, Sax and Flashbacks’, released on Friday December 4 through her mentor Simon Cowell’s record label Syco Music.
The singer spoke about her new single ‘Sax’ which has entered the charts at number three, along with the use of her music in adverts for a leading supermarket chain. Fleur also talked to Andy about her life before X Factor and her first appearance on the show as part of female group ‘Addictive Ladies’, before returning to become a finalist alongside 2014 winner, Ben Haenow.
Speaking about her experiences on the ITV hit show, Fleur said: “The X-Factor was bigger and better than when I did it the first time. Simon said to me: ‘Gosh Fleur, I looked back at the tapes of your first audition and the show looks so old’. Simon signed me after the show and he’s overseen the whole project. His opinion means a lot to me and it’s highly valued within the industry.”
Fleur revealed her musical influences include Michael Jackson, Simply Red, George Michael and Van Morrison and talked about the varied ways in which she approaches song writing.
Commenting on her album, Fleur added: “The album is up-tempo and uplifting, its high energy. It’s the perfect album to play before a night out – it’s constant party vibes.
“I want my music to be heard by as many people all over the world as possible. The pinnacle for me would be a world tour – then I would be really pleased.”
