James Arthur working with Steve Aoki after Louis Tomlinson introduced them
James Arthur and Steve Aoki have teamed up and are planning to work on some tracks the superstar producer sent the 'Say You Won't Let Go' later this year.
The 28-year-old musician is still riding on the success of his latest record 'Back from the Edge', but he has already been working on some new tracks for his next one, and he has revealed he's been sent some songs by the 39-year-old producer, who he met through his One Direction pal, Louis Tomlinson.
The 'Safe Inside' hitmaker plans on getting an Airbnb in America soon so he can work on the tracks.
James told the Daily Star newspaper: "I really love it out there, I wish I was still there.
"It feels so good to be recognised there because I have been inspired by so many American artists.
"It's great working with people like Steve. He's been in the game for so many years and he is such a gentleman, such a genuine guy.
"He showed me songs he thought I would sound good on, which is really cool. So hopefully we'll get something.
"It'd be nice to get a place in the States, I've spent quite a lot of time over there and I will be in the next year or so just because this song ('Say You Won't Let Go') seems to be really taking off. It's on fire. I could get a fancy Airbnb or something."
The hunky pop star recently said he "needs" to produce a "club bangers album."
He feels he has written "too many heartfelt emotional ballads" and needs to start making music similar to Usher's more popular tracks, which are commonly played in nightclubs.
He previously said: "I've made too many heartfelt emotional ballads. I need to make my Usher club bangers album".
And the 'The X Factor' champion - who won the talent contest in 2012 - believes his success in the music industry has "trumped" everything he's ever done and has made up for any errors he has made during his career.
He explained: "Music has trumped everything that I've done. It's made up for all the mistakes."
