New record deal for X Factor winner

Joe McElderry has landed a new record deal - just days after winning his latest TV talent contest.

The singer was dropped by Simon Cowell's label, despite scoring a number one single following his 2009 X Factor win.

But after making a comeback to triumph in ITV1's Popstar To Operastar at the weekend, he has now been signed by rival company Universal.

The company said the 20-year-old's next album would be made up of "classic songs". These are expected to include the likes of Time To Say Goodbye, Over The Rainbow and Nessun Dorma, as well I Dreamed A Dream, which gave Cowell's act Susan Boyle international success.

Joe - who was mentored by Cheryl Cole during his run on X Factor - will record the album over the coming weeks.

He said: "Since winning The X Factor in 2009, I have been on an incredible journey.

"My new album is a snapshot of where I am today and I am excited about the opportunity to record and perform some of this amazing repertoire. I hope people join me on my musical journey."

Universal said: "Joe is ready for the next stage in his musical career. His consistently captivating performances on Popstar to Operastar have attracted a whole new audience to the classical crossover genre, as well as taking his loyal fans on a musical journey."

Joe, from South Shields, will release his new album on August 22.
