Olly Murs has taken to Twitter to announce the name of his fifth studio album, as well as giving a release date

Olly Murs has announced the name of his next album.

The 32-year-old singer has revealed that his fifth studio LP will be called '24hrs' and is set for release on November 11.

The 'Troublemaker' singer broke the news via Twitter after a day of posting pictures that indicated the time of day.

At midnight, the musician simply posted a short video clip that read: "'24hrs'. The new album. 11:11. (sic)"

Olly's newest single, 'You Don't Know Love' - which he will perform on 'Strictly Come Dancing' this Saturday (03.09.16) - is likely to appear on the album, although the track list has not yet been released.

The album is a follow-up to 2014's 'Never Been Better', which caused the former 'X Factor' finalist to lash out at the charts after none of the singles from the album reached the number one spot.

Even his new single has so far peaked at number 19, and he has argued that the chart isn't "fair" at the moment.

Speaking previously, the star said: "For me, 'You Don't Know Love' has been successful and I'm enjoying it and it's gone well, but it's still not where I want it to be.

"I want the song to be No.1. I think it's hard now for any artist - especially UK artists - to get a No.1.

"Streaming is so popular, so if you are an in-demand act, obviously people want to listen to your music. I feel like the chart now, for breaking new artists, is harder, because the songs have to be incredible.

"It's not a fair chart at the moment."
