#Jedward Announce Five Year Record Deal

Following the revelation of the title and artwork for their fourth album, ‘Voice Of A Rebel’, Jedward have announced that they have signed a five year recording contract with Universal Music Asia.

Speaking today on ITV’s ‘Loose Women’, John said that their mother Susanna Condron, had organised the deal for them. Susanna died in February this year after a long private battle with cancer.

In a statement to RTÉ Entertainment, Jedward talked about the album, including some song titles:

“All songs are written and created by us. We have a song for every mood. It’s a new era for our fans and will take our live shows to another level.

“We signed a 5 year deal with Universal Music Asia and we can’t wait to release this album as it will be our 1st authentic complete original album.

“It has been very therapeutic writing these songs and the process has helped us get a lot off our chests and has empowered us.”

They added: “Some song titles include Soul Crushing which is a heartbreak song. Bodies in Action and Follow My Whispers have a more sensual romantic vibe.

Teenage Runaways and Phoenix Wings are shots of energy and really uplifting that will pick you up.”

No date has yet been given for the album’s release.
