James Arthur has confirmed that he has parted ways with Simon Cowell‘s record label, Syco.

Rumours that he had been dropped from the label have been around for some time, and despite initial denials, the singer confirmed the news via Twitter on Wednesday.



The former X Factor winner has been surrounded in controversy, over the past year, and has said in the past, that he knew his label wouldn’t have been too happy.

“Obviously Syco and X Factor won’t be happy with some of the things I’ve said against the brand which weren’t intended in the way they’ve been taken.

“I don’t ever want to come across as a media-trained, vacant, glossy-eyed popstar who doesn’t want to connect with the world, with normal people.”

Arthur’s self-titled album with Syco, was released in November 2013 and reached number two in the UK album charts.
