X Factor and One Direction are two topics we love hearing about and we’re happy to say that the following combines both!

Olly Murs, who was the runner up on 2009’s The X Factor in England, announced that his new single is dropping on May 22 titled “Heart Skips A Beat” and he will be touring with One Direction this summer!

Sounds like only good things for this up and coming singer!

Murs’ single combines the British singer with hip hop duo Chiddy Bang, which gives the singer a definite R&B vibe on this song. Check out the single HERE!

Murs will also mark his US performance debut with fellow X-Factor Brit hotties, One Direction, on their sold out 2012 summer tour.

Looks like this summer will be buzzing with British boy bands galore. Did you score tickets to OD’s tour this summer? Let us know in our comments!
