Britain's Got Talent runner-up Shaheen Jarfargholi has announced news of his debut single.

A double A-side of 'Last Train Home' and 'Hip Teens' will be released on November 22.

A press release describes 'Last Train Home' as an "original string-soaked ballad with a nod to an era gone by", while 'Hip Teens' is a cover of soul group Frank Popp's 2007 hit 'Hip Teens (Don't Wear Blue Jeans)'.

Both tracks are taken from the singer's debut album, said to be a mixture of original material and rare '60s soul covers.

The 13-year-old has collaborated with top US producers Jerry Wonda and Igloo & TC, who are best known for their work with Whitney Houston, Black Eyed Peas and Backstreet Boys.

Also working on the project are UK producers Jimmy Hogarth and Martin Terefe, whose credits include Amy Winehouse, Duffy and James Morrison.

Jarfargholi performed at Michael Jackson's memorial service to an audience of over a billion earlier this year, garnering praise from the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Stevie Wonder and Motown founder Berry Gordy.

His as-yet untitled album is also slated for a November release.
