David Sneddon has written songs for the Matt Cardle album

Fame Academy alumnus and Leon Jackson prototype, David Sneddon, has reportedly ‘penned’ (CO-penned, surely) some songs for ‘serious musician’ Matthew Cardle’s debut album, ‘Letters’. Guy Chambers and Gary Barlow have also written tracks for the ‘Travis meets Snow Patrol’ sounding record.

In 2009, the ‘Stop Living the Lie’ hitmaker was hired by Sony/ATV Music Publishing as a songwriter for Syco and Universal Music. Since then he has written somes songs for Julian Peretta and (you’d better have a sit down) the Hurts album including ‘Illuminated’ (yes, way), ‘Silver Lining’ and ‘Blood, Tears and Gold’. Well done, David.

You’ll be able to hear the Sneddo-collabo when Letters is released on October 17, just in time for Matt to perform Barlow cast off ‘Run For Your Life’ live on that X Factor programme.

Matt Cardle’s new stuff sounds like “Coldplay and Travis”

Credible singer Matt Cardle has been compared to some of the UK’s most exciting groups including Coldplay and Travis. Serious recording artist bonus points there, surely.

Matt (WHO WRITES HIS OWN SONGS) is currently collaborating with ‘Insatiable’ hitmaker Guy Chambers. Chambers told The Sunwhat to expect from the X Factor winner’s debut release coming soon to a live show appearance near you. “He’s like a cross between Coldplay, Travis and Snow Patrol”.

The songwriter who CO-WROTE two songs for Cardle’s forthcoming album added, “It’s very accessible but it’s also very powerful and emotive. He’s got some really good tracks and he’s a very nice guy”.

Chambers added that the ‘When We Collide’ singer had a long way to go to match the success of fellow show winner and ‘I Got You’ hitmaker Leona Lewis. “I hope he’ll be a success but obviously it will be hard for him to compete with Leona Lewis because she is a worldwide hit”.
