Diana Vickers Leaves RCA Records

Diana Vickers has parted ways with her record label, RCA Records, months after she started recording material for her second album.

Songs From The Tainted Cherry Tree, Diana’s number one debut album, failed to sell what RCA had expected even after trying to rescue the album campaign by releasing a brand new song during The X Factor last year. The single, My Wicked Heart, failed to become a success following an X Factor performance and plans to re-release the album were scrapped in favour of moving onto its follow up.

Diana announced the news via her Tumblr:

yo guys! I just want to let you know what the crack is at the moment down in the vickers camp. Myself and RCA have decided to part company, purely based on a creative level. I will always be really thankful for the time we’ve spent together and the support they’ve given me. But, I’ve grown up a lot since the first album and whilst the past couple years have been a lot of fun and a great success, I’m now ready to take a wander down a different, very exciting path! In order to grow, this change has to be made.

I’m so proud of where the second album is right now and I’m counting down the minutes until it’s all ready and you guys can finally hear it! I’ve been having the best time over the past 6 months- being creative, working with so many inspirational people, falling in love with LA and growing as an artist.

I just got back from the INCREDIBLE Arcade Fire gig at Hyde park they bloody rocked it. Up early for studio tomorrow so need my rest ! Love always to all my amazing fans. Diana xx

leave you with this

It seems RCA have let Diana keep the new tracks she recorded, in order to take them with her to her new label which has yet to be revealed.

Hopefully the new album will be of the same standard as her debut and manages to find much more success.
