For the very first time, the greatest hits from The X Factor’s incredible decade at the forefront of UK entertainment are collected in one place. Released on November 25th through Sony Music/Syco Music, ‘The X Factor’ is a 2CD compilation including 18 No.1s in the UK alone across the artists on its 34 tracks. The X Factor
shows the incredible range of diverse styles that its many stars are capable of. From the sheer pop of Olly Murs’ ‘Heart Skips A Beat’ and Little Mix’s ‘Wings’ to the club-inspired JLS and Alexandra Burke, all the way to the heartfelt balladry of One Direction’s ‘Little Things’ and Leona Lewis’ ‘Bleeding Love’ and the contemporary soul of last year’s winner James Arthur and ‘Impossible’. The X Factor
brings together acts from all the way through the show’s history, including 2012 stars right up to its present day with James Arthur, Lucy Spraggan and Union J. The X Factor
the album also shows how the music from The X Factor has resonated around the globe. ‘Bleeding Love’ has sold close to 4million copies, while One Direction have become worldwide superstars off the back of their breakthrough hit ‘What Makes You Beautiful’. Stars including Olly Murs, Little Mix and Cher Lloyd have also had extraordinary success in the US and elsewhere, further cementing The X Factor’s position as a truly ground breaking opportunity for talented new artists.
