X Factor 2014 winner Ben Haenow has confirmed that he is parting ways with his former mentors music label, Syco. The singer only released his debut album only a few months ago.
Ben, 31, took to his Twitter account yesterday to announce the news, saying:
“So I wanted to let you all know directly from me, that after what has been the most incredible experience working on my debut album, myself and Syco entertainment have decided to part ways.
“Working with The X Factor and Syco has been the most amazing time of my life and has given me the best possible platform for the start of my career. I have the upmost respect for them both and cannot thank them enough for all the help and everything they have done for me this past year.
“I have had the privilege of working with some incredible people, making some great friends and making a great record which I am still extremely proud of… However, after discussions with the Syco team we both felt it was the right time to move on.”
On a lighter note, Ben seems optimistic for the future as he added: ”You have all made my dreams come true and I owe YOU everything. None of this would have been possible without you guys!”
The X Factor returns to ITV later this year.
