Matt Cardle says he can't wait to start work on his debut album.
The X Factor winner's first single When We Collide, a cover of the Biffy Clyro track, went to the top of the charts at Christmas.
In a video message posted on his official website, Matt, who is rumoured to be featuring fellow X Factor contestant Aiden Grimshaw on his forthcoming album, said: "New Year's was interesting. I went up to see Aiden to get smashed and we had a good time.
"Now I'm just looking forward to cracking on and getting the album written and can't wait for the tour. That's starting in not long now and that's going to be a pretty incredible experience I reckon."
The former decorator added: "Please be buying my single when it comes out - I want to get it out as soon as possible, so please be buying it and thank you so much for your support, it's just wicked!"
According to reports, Simon Cowell has said that he wants Matt to write and co-write songs on his first album.
