Matt Cardle believe he's been given Biffy Clyro's blessing for covering Many Of Horror, having met them at the Kerrang Awards:
Matt said: "I was a bit worried about meeting them because I had no idea what they thought of my song.Gordon speculates that all the money might have helped, which is possible. It's equally likely that Biffy Clyro know that being angry with an X Factor singer for the songs they sing is a bit like hating a dancing bear for the music he shuffles to.
"I'm a huge fan of theirs so I apologised to them in case they hated it.
"But we had a really nice chat. As it turns out, I think they quite liked my cover. They didn't have a problem with it at all."
Smart reports that next time round, it'll be different as Cardle is getting a co-writer credit ("writing") for his new album:
He's been heavily involved in the writing process and is looking forward to showing off his new tracks.The money from the new Matt Cardle album? I doubt it'll stretch to buying a copy of Steve Brookstein's most recent album.
It will be interesting to see how Matt spends his money.
I doubt he'll be too keen on a yacht.
Maybe just a new cap to replace the one that hasn't left his head for nearly 12 months.
