Union J: 'We will write songs for second album'

By and Jon Hornbuckle
Union J have revealed that they want to write their own material for their next album.

The group explained that they have been practising songwriting for their second LP after their self-penned songs failed to make the cut on their debut.

"We are going to write on album two, we are going to work with some great songwriters and we will get involved in the writing process," Jaymi Hensley told Jon Hornbuckle for Digital Spy.

"We did write for this album and we'd done about 14 songs but they didn't go on the album, maybe because they weren't right. The thing about writing is it's personal but also the more practice you get, the better you get.

"We've been through more experiences now and we know more about sound."

Josh Cuthbert added: "We're working with some amazing producers and writers so we wanted the first album to learn from things and hopefully on the second and third albums we will grow."

Discussing the pressure to match the success of boybands One Direction and The Wanted, Hensley said that they are aiming "to do just as well as them", adding: "It's a positive not a negative and when people say you're like One Direction, well that's like telling a female artist she's like Beyoncé - what's wrong with that?"

Union J recently confirmed that they will release a second album and are hoping to secure a "massive hit" to propel their career.
