'X Factor' singer no longer with RCA

Diana Vickers has parted ways with her record label.

The singer featured on the fifth series of The X Factor and signed to RCA records in 2009. She went on to score two Number Ones, with her debut single ‘Once’ and album ‘Songs From The Tainted Cherry Tree’, in 2010.

However, writing on her Tumblr she said: “Yo guys! I just want to let you know what the crack is at the moment down in the Vickers camp. Myself and RCA have decided to part company, purely based on a creative level.

“I will always be really thankful for the time we’ve spent together and the support they’ve given me. But, I’ve grown up a lot since the first album and whilst the past couple years have been a lot of fun and a great success, I’m now ready to take a wander down a different, very exciting path! In order to grow, this change has to be made.”

The singer added that she was working on her new album.

“I’m so proud of where the second album is right now,” she said, “and I’m counting down the minutes until it’s all ready and you guys can finally hear it! I’ve been having the best time over the past 6 months – being creative, working with so many inspirational people, falling in love with LA and growing as an artist.”
