Diana Vickers - Diana Vickers Explains Record Label Dispute

British pop star Diana Vickers parted ways with her record label amid a disagreement over her new music.

The singer, who shot to fame on Britain's The X Factor, scored a number one hit in the U.K. with her 2010 debut album Songs from the Tainted Cherry Tree, but she was dropped by Rca just a year later (11).

Vickers has now revealed her relationship with record label bosses broke down because they wanted her to release new music before she was ready.

She tells Britain's The Sun, "It got to a point where it just wasn't really working. I'd really grown out of the first album and I wanted to move on. Although the first album did really well and I'm really proud of it, I fell out of love with it quite quickly...

"I wanted to grow as an artist and when you're with a big label, there's always a rush to get things out and I wasn't comfortable with that. I didn't want to rush and put something out that I didn't believe in."

Vickers admits leaving the label was frightening, but it worked out for the best as she is preparing to bounce back with a second album, Music To Make Boys Cry, which will be released in September (13) on independent label So Recordings.

She adds, "I was really scared when I first left the label, but there's so much more freedom. It was a really good thing for me."
