Fleur East has teased her new single 'Sax' will show her "cheeky" side when it is released later this month
Fleur East's new single will show her "cheeky" side.
The 27-year-old singer has announced the release of her debut single 'Sax' and revealed the naughty track will give people a taste of what to expect from her album, due next month.
She said: "I always knew that 'Sax' would be the first single. It's fun, cheeky and a song that people can move to. It's indicative of the sound that's on the new album - a salute to old school with a modern twist.
"I'm excited for people to hear it and hope they love it as much as I do."
Fleur reached the finals of 'The X Factor' last year and will now go head-to-head with the show's winner Ben Haenow with the release of her single (23.10.15), just a fortnight after his first single 'Second Hand Heart' (09.10.15).
But it's not the first track Fleur has recorded since leaving the signing competition last year, as she recently recorded a rendition of Alicia Keys' 'Girl On Fire' for Virgin Media's latest advert promoting their new Vivid 200Mbps broadband.
Speaking about the cover, she commented: "I have always been a huge fan of Alicia Keys - I covered her songs when I was on last year's 'The X Factor'. Covering 'Girl On Fire' for the new Virgin Media ad has been so much fun - my original material on the new album is mostly upbeat so covering a ballad has been a good change. I am privileged to cover someone as iconic as Alicia and that relates to inspirational women too."
