Matt Terry has shared details of his new single, called Sucker For You.
The track is out this Friday (October 13) and serves as the lead single from his forthcoming debut album, out later this year.
"I'm so excited for people to hear my new material," Matt said. "So far people know me as the guy who won X Factor. But when I look back on this time last year, I can't quite believe how far I've come. I'm so grateful for where I am now, and I'm happier than I've ever been. I can't wait for the next step in my journey."
Matt describes the song, which he co-wrote, as being about the darker side of love. “We’ve all been in that position when we know a relationship is toxic and not good for us," he explained, "but sometimes we ignore it and refuse to let go.
"I wrote this song when I was going through exactly that. The lyrics tell a tale of heartbreak, but the melody isn’t sad or depressing – because I’ve come out the other side and I’m happy now."
Sucker For You follows his recent Latin pop collaboration with Enrique Iglesias and Sean Paul, called Subeme La Radio. The track peaked at Number 10 on the Official Singles Chart in August and has racked up 294,000 combined sales to date.
Meanwhile, his X Factor winner's single, the Ed Sheeran-penned When Christmas Comes Around, reached Number 3 last December and has notched up 127,000 combined sales.
