POP BITS. Everyone’s favourite wee Scottish lad from “The X Factor” Nicholas McDonald was quickly snapped up by RCA Records after finishing second on the hit TV show and he’s already got an album coming out.
The album ‘In The Arms Of An Angel’ will be released on March 17 and feature Nicholas’s own take on some massive songs such as Bruno Mars’ ‘Just The Way You Are’, Adele’s ‘Someone Like You’ and Westlife’s ‘Flying Without Wings’.
But Nicholas’ first collection won’t just be full of covers, oh no, there’s some original stuff too. Nicholas co-wrote the tracks ‘Solid Gold’ and ‘Smile’, as well as his début single ‘Answerphone’.
Nicholas had to say of the album: “When I found out that I was signing to RCA I was over the moon as I knew that they worked with some of the biggest artists in the world. It feels absolutely amazing to be recording my own album and I can’t wait to get it out there and give something back to all the fans that have supported me from the very start.”
