Fear not, Credibility Cardle is finally with an independent label that understands his vision.
Music Week are reporting that the 'Beat Of A Breaking Heart' hitmaker will release his second album, 'The Fire', on October 29 via SO What? Recordings. Cardle 'parted ways' with previous label Columbia earlier this year.
'The Fire' will feature collaborations with Eg White, Steve Booker and someone from Starsailor, and will be preceded by the single 'It's Only Love'.
As proof that he hasn't completely forgotten his X Factor roots, the closing track on the album is a cover of 'The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face'.
