Sorry Syco! Union J Sign Deal With RCA Records And Announce New Single To Debut In June

Union J have confirmed their new record deal with RCA Records and have also announced that their debut single will be released in June.

The former X Factor contestants, who finished fourth in last year’s competition, were long rumoured to have signed to Cowell’s Syco label after it was revealed in December that they had joined Sony Music’s rosta.

However, it has now been confirmed that Union J have signed to another Sony Music subsidiary, RCA, which is also home to the likes of Alexandra Burke and JLS.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be signed to RCA. Being on X Factor was such a great experience and the perfect way for us to start our musical journey,” Union J said confirming the news.

“Hopefully 2013 will an amazing year for us and we cannot wait for everyone to hear our music.”

Last week, Union J’s fellow X Factor contestant Jahmene Douglas announced that he too had signed to RCA, while Ella Henderson has inked a deal with Cowell’s Syco and is already working with Emeli Sande and Adele’s songwriter for her debut album.

James Arthur, who won the show, automatically scored a deal with Syco as part of the terms of winning the show.
