The artist is back on track after being dropped in 2014
Artist James Arthur has reportedly joined Simon Cowell’s Syco Music once more.
The 28-year-old star, who won The X Factor in 2012 and delivered a mega hit with Say You Won’t Let Go, was recently re-signed by Cowell after the label dropped him in 2014 due to various controversies.
An insider revealed to The Sun newspaper: “Over the last few years James has kept in touch with Simon.
Simon has always thought James is a real talent but as soon as he heard the record he made up his mind to re-sign him. James has grown up a lot and realises he made mistakes in the past. Simon knows this.
The label will be responsible for distributing Arthur’s latest work. The source continued to add: Syco will distribute James’s new album in the UK when it comes out later this year.”
Arthur witnessed great success thanks to his role on the popular talent show, but he was soon dropped from the label after a series of inappropriate comments made on Twitter.
This led Cowell to comment about his self-destructive attitude, which ultimately cost him a lucrative contract.
“I think James unfortunately has had so many issues with what he has done. Somebody should have told him to shut up and just put the records out,” the music mogul stated.
Although more contractual details are still emerging, the star now appears to be back on track with his music career.
A spokesman added: “We can confirm that James Arthur is now once again signed to Syco Music in the UK. We are delighted to welcome him back into the Syco fold.”
