Olly Murs makes heartbreak record

Olly Murs' new album is going to be his heartbreak record.

The 32-year-old pop star has finished his fifth studio LP and is getting ready to release it this year and he has revealed it contains some songs which deal with his split from his model girlfriend Francesca Thomas last September.

Olly admits he couldn't help but channel his feelings into his lyrics and this has resulted in his most "honest and personal album" yet.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz, he said: "I'm buzzing, I'm so excited to have an album coming back out it's been a long time for me. I did a single last year but the last real proper album was 'Never Been Better' back in 2014 so it's great to an album this year.

"It's gonna be a bit more open for me a bit more personal but a good person you know I'm excited ... It's quite an open record so people get to really hear the tough times that I've been through. Having a break up with my girlfriend was really tough for me to go through so it's nice to speak about it on these songs.

"It's going to be an honest album, it's going to be completely fresh and new for me. I wanted to come back with something different from the fans, it's time for me to sort of mix it up and I think this album really talk about other things that have been going on in my life. It's the most personal album I've done."

Although Olly will be baring his soul, the former 'X Factor' contestant has assured fans his trademark upbeat sound will still be on the LP.

He added: "It's definitely gonna have that (my signature sound) but there's going to be a bit of an 80s vibe to it, a bit of sexiness too and some cheekiness - I love doing cheeky!"

Olly also teased he's got some big name collaborations on the record that he's keeping a secret - for now.

The 'Kiss Me' singer - who is supporting Take That at their Barclaycard presents British Summer Time Hyde Park concert in London this Saturday (09.07.16) - said: "I've got some great collaborations it's something to talk to you guys about soon."
