'X Factor' Winner Tate Stevens Announces Album Release Date
The X Factor season two winner Tate Stevens is set to release his self-titled debut album April 23, Syco Music/RCA Nashville said Monday.
Produced by Blake Chancey, the record will include three songs that Stevens co-wrote alongside Ashley Gorley, Joe Diffie, Wade Kirby, Phil O'Donnell, Shane Minor and David Lee Murphy. It will include the single “Power of a Love Song,” written by Jeremy Bussey, Bradley Gaskin and Marcus Franklin Johnson.
“For someone that has dreamt of recording and releasing music for over a decade, to say I’m excited is an understatement,” said the 37-year-old Missouri native. “I feel like the songs we selected for the album are a real reflection of my personality -- they range from fun-loving to serious and everything in between."
Stevens won the Fox singing competition -- and a $5 million recording contract -- in December.
Pre-orders of Tate Stevens are now available on Amazon.
