Former X Factor contestant Aiden Grimshaw says it feels "weird" looking back at his stint competing on the ITV talent show.
The singer reached the sixth week of the live shows of the programme in 2010.
Grimshaw also talked about heading into the studio and how he played some of the music for his grandmother ahead of the release.
His debut album, Misty Eye, is due for release on 13 August and it will be preceded by his first single, Is This Love on 3 June.
Aiden was speaking to Newsbeat's music reporter Greg Cochrane.
