Jake Quickenden has unveiled his debut single, 'I Want You'.

Last year's X Factor contestant Jake is back with new music just ahead of his 'Laid Bare' tour in July.

Jake shared a Soundcloud clip of the upbeat summer track, which takes inspiration from Nile Rodgers and Bruno Mars.

After sharing the track with fans, he tweeted: "Really appreciate all the nice comments about 'I Want You' and you amazing lot sharing it!! I enjoy making music and will keep doing it."

After being eliminated from The X Factor in the third week, Jake jetted off to Australia for a stint on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! just a few weeks later.

It was a successful stint for him as he finished in second place behind winner Carl 'Foggy' Fogarty.

This month, Reveal were invited down to Jake's showcase, where he performed the four tracks he self-penned for his EP.

He told us: "Maybe I didn't get the chance to show my true self on The X Factor, but I'm not trying to impress anyone. I'm not [making music] to rub salt in Simon Cowell's wounds, I'm doing it because I love it. But if [Simon] heard it and said 'f****** hell this is good', I'd be like told ya!"
