‘Kryptonite’ has been created with the producer Grimez and the track is set to mix rock’n’roll with grime and hip-hop styles.

The track will get its first full airing on Friday night, during DJ Target’s 1Xtra show.

Speaking of the collaboration, James states: “Having heard and loved Rymez’ work and hearing how diverse he can be, I was excited to get a chance to work together.”

Earlier this year, James parted ways with Simon Cowell’s record label, Syco, however that hasn’t stopped him from creating new tracks and going on a European tour.

After delighting crowds at V Festival, James spoke backstage about how he’s coped with his various controversies, admitting that he needs to focus on having a positive attitude.

‘Kryptonite’ is out on Sunday 18 October. Listen to a preview above...
