As we made mention at the end of our Australian Idol coverage last night, winner Wes Carr’s debut single ‘You’ will be released to digital retail later today and into stores physically on Wednesday December 03. The CD single format will include three bonus tracks, all songs Wes performed as part of his Idol journey (‘Get Back’, ‘If I Were A Carpenter’ and ‘Desire’). A video for the single is being shot throughout this week and it’s anticipated it’ll hit the screens from next Monday, December 01. Chairman of Sony Music Australia, Denis Handlin, is understandably overjoyed at Wes’s win, “I am incredibly excited about working with Wes on making a brilliant studio album that will be ready for release in the New Year. Congratulations to Network Ten and Fremantle Media on producing an excellent series”, he said.
