NEW YORK, Oct. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — International Pop Star Olly Murs is pleased to announce the release of his US debut album RIGHT PLACE, RIGHT TIME on December 4, 2012. The album will feature the top 40 hit “Heart Skips A Beat” ft. Chiddy Bang and the upcoming pop anthem “Troublemaker” ft. Flo Rida.
“RIGHT PLACE, RIGHT TIME as a title sums up my career to this point. I’ve worked hard in everything I’ve done, doing what’s felt right, and everything has fit into place. It sums up the sentiment for this whole album.”- Olly Murs
Olly has been busy writing and recording the album since March 2012, in both the UK and US. Olly has co-written the entire album, collaborating with the likes of Steve Robson, Claude Kelly, Wayne Hector, TMS and Andrew Frampton. Olly has also written three songs with his friend, singer/songwriter and fellow Essex boy, Ed Drewett (“Glad You Came“, All Time Low, The Wanted).
RIGHT PLACE, RIGHT TIME is one of USA TODAY’s Fall Albums to Watch and features new tracks from Olly’s 3rd UK album RIGHT PLACE, RIGHT TIME, as well as tracks from his double platinum sophomore UK album IN CASE YOU DIDN’T KNOW (see below for full track list).
Olly Murs’ rise to fame began after he auditioned in 2009 for Britain’s top singing competition show, The X Factor, with “Superstition.” Simon Cowell said it inspired “the easiest yes I’ve ever given.” In a short amount of time Murs has achieved international success, including two double platinum albums and three #1 singles in the UK. The British Superstar, to date, has sold over 4 million records internationally.
