Aiden Grimshaw has admitted that he is nervous about the release of his debut album.
The former X Factor contestant revealed that he is maintaining his "moody" style.
Grimshaw told the Blackpool Gazette: "I am a bit nervous about the reception, so far it has gone well, but this is my own stuff, people will be judging and I have had so long away.
"Most of the X Factor stuff was moody and there are some pretty heartfelt moody tracks, a bit 'Mad World'-esque, but there are also some big, euphoric, angry beats as well.'
The 20-year-old is to release his album Misty Eye on August 13.
He added: "It has been very important for me to take time out since The X Factor and work with different producers to find my feet.
"I didn't know what I was doing or what sound I was going for, it has taken a year and a bit, well almost two years, for me to start working it all out.
"I started writing the album in November last year, I wanted to write honest music, just me in a studio making those experiences and coming up with ideas."
