Olly Murs' confidence crisis

Olly Murs has admitted he doesn't have a great deal of faith in himself as a musician, but the backing of music mogul Simon Cowell has lifted his spirits.
Great deals on musical instruments

Olly Murs doesn't believe in himself as a musician.

The 'Please Don't Let Me Go' singer - who came second in UK talent search show 'The X Factor', fronted by music mogul Simon Cowell last year - doesn't have a great deal of belief in himself, but has had "fantastic" feedback for his debut single.

Olly told BANG Showbiz: "I'd always wanted for Simon Cowell to be a part of my deal so I'm over the moon he's still involved. He has such great belief in me. I'm the only one who doesn't believe in myself but the feedback for 'Please Don't Let Me Go' has been fantastic.

"We just wanted to do something that was summery, something that was reggae, something that was cool, something that was quirky and fun.

"This single is just a small indication of the album. There's also a lot of poppy ballads on there and a real variety of stuff - you don't want it to sound the same all the way through."

The former call centre worker admitted there is a long list of artists he would love to collaborate with in the future, but thought it was important to make his debut album all his own work.

Olly added: "I'd love to collaborate with other people, I really, really would but I thought it was important not to do that on the first album.

"It would be easy for me to say I want to collaborate with Stevie Wonder or Paul McCartney but let's be honest, it's not going to happen. Professor Green and Eliza Doolittle are the ones I'd want to work with at the moment."
