Alexandra Burke is bouncing right back into our lives following her incredible run on Strictly Come Dancing, this week announcing she has signed with Decca Records for her new album, The Truth Is. The former X Factor winner and incredible songstress has also announced she’ll be embarking on an exciting new UK headline tour.

Set to drop her new collection of songs on March 9, 2018, Alexandra is celebrating a decade in showbusiness following her iconic X Factor win, and her fans couldn’t be more excited.

Chatting about the record, Alexandra says: “This album is incredibly personal to me. I have poured my heart and soul into my new music and it reflects the incredible journey I’ve been through – highs and lows, love and loss. It feels amazing to finally be sharing this album with everyone and I hope they enjoy hearing what The Truth Is.”

The LP follows the success of Alexandra’s debut album Overcome which topped the UK Album Charts, with four singles that went straight to the top of the UK Singles Chart and the Irish Singles Chart.

Later in her career, she turned her attention to the West End and picked up the role of Rachel Marron in The Bodyguard; a character made famous by Whitney Houston in the movie version of the show. She then stepped into the lead role in Sister Act on stage in 2016.
