    Burke's album was originally scheduled for a March 2009 release in time for Mother's Day. However, Simon Cowell has confirmed that her album is now scheduled for release later in the year to allow Burke to polish her skills and find the right songs for the album. On 13 February 2009 it was reported that Burke has signed a £3 million, five-album US record deal with Epic Records. Later in March Cowell announced that he believes Burke will enjoy a similar success to previous X-Factor winner Leona Lewis, having already picked 4 songs for the album.

    HMV have confirmed that the album is currently scheduled for release on October 26, 2009 in the UK

    Because they're trying to make her the next Leona and spending time on the album rather than knocking together 7 covers and 3 bland new songs that will get to No.1 in January, only for the artist to fade into obscurity shortly afterwards (see Leon Jackson, Shane Ward). She has more star quality about her than the likes of Steve Brookstein.

    Not much to look forward to, mate. Some of her tracks have been leaked and it looks like they've got it all wrong. Her voice, that wasn't too amazing to start with, has just been destroyed really.

    Didn't they say back when her winning single was released that her album would be out in november 2009? That seems to be the x factor fashion anyway, as they all promote their new albums and sing their album debuts during one of the live shows..

    It's been stopped by the sheer collective willpower of the masses.

    because Britain doesn't need yet another clone of the young black female talented singer stereotype, whereas JLS (although admittedly not to my taste with their music) are something fresh, new, and exciting, as well as having better talent?

    mm, I wonder whether her album will be released during the next series of the x-factor so she can reach the target demographic of morons that voted for her to win in the first place.

    She annoyed the living crap out of me.
    Talent = yes.
    Distinctive talent = no.

    Because its her debut album and they have spend so much money on production like ( Timbaland, The Neptunes etc.) They'll need to promote the album which can take time , Diddy's album is delayed, 50 cent album as well.
