Matt Cardle keen to get started on second album

Matt Cardle has revealed that he’s eager to get back into the studio to record the follow-up to his debut album, 'Letters.'

The 2010 X-Factor winner, who previously stated that he would like to pursue a more raw sound in the future, told The Daily Star that he’s already penned several songs for the record:

“I’m writing all the time. I’d like it out ASAP but like Letters, it has to be right and I’m not going to be rushed.”

The 28-year-old, whose last two singles both failed to make the UK Top 40, also claimed that he’s happy to be more of an albums artist:

“There are well-known artists out there who have had two or three Top 10 singles and barely sold any albums.

“Perception-wise, people are like: ‘Oh they’ve had three hits, they must be creaming it,’ but it’s absolutely the opposite. You can't live off singles but what you can do is keep an album bobbing away.”

'Letters' has spent nearly six months in the album chart, but was kept off the top spot by Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’ self-titled first effort in its first week of release, something which Cardle doesn’t seem too disappointed by, admitting: “That was cool in my eyes.”
