You’ve really got to ask yourself whether winning a TV talent competition comes with any prestige these days, particularly when the runner up’s album is being released within a week of the winner’s. Sadly, this is what it’s come down to.
But that gripe aside, there are lots of Aussies who’ll be rushing to their nearest PC or music store later this month to get their mitts on the debut album for ‘X Factor’ runner-up Taylor Henderson, especially in the wake of the successful release of his debut single ‘Borrow My Heart’, a video for which was shot in Sydney this week.
The track has spent most of the past week at No.1 on the iTunes chart and will probably battle it out with Eminem and Rihanna for the top spot when the ARIA singles charts are released tomorrow.
Taylor’s self-titled debut (cover pictured above) will contain the single, along with full-length studio versions of his performances of Avicii’s ‘Wake Me Up’, Mumford & Sons’ ‘I Will Wait’, Daryl Braithwaite’s ‘The Horses’ and more.
It’s available on Friday November 29.
