NEW YORK, Oct. 1 (UPI) -- Olly Murs, a fan favorite from the British version of "The X Factor," is to release his first U.S. album Dec. 4, Columbia Records announced Monday.

"Right Place, Right Time" will feature his hit song, "Heart Skips a Beat" featuring Chiddy Bang, and "Troublemaker," his soon-to-be-released collaboration with Flo Rida.

"'Right Place, Right Time' as a title sums up my career to this point. I've worked hard in everything I've done, doing what's felt right, and everything has fit into place. It sums up the sentiment for this whole album," Murs said in a statement Monday.

Murs appeared on the singing competition show, "The X Factor," in 2009. He has since released two double platinum albums and three No. 1 singles in the United Kingdom. The British recording artist has sold more than 4 million records internationally, his record label said.
