Peter Andre has announced he is releasing a new album which is inspired by Frank Sinatra.

The 42-year-old singer has created his own take on some of the American icon's classic hits - including 'Mac The Knife' and 'Ain't That A Kick In The Head' - to mark the 100th anniversary of his birth on upcoming LP 'Come Fly With Me'.

Peter shared: ''All of these songs are great, great classics. The fact that we're celebrating hundred years of Frank Sinatra makes the choice even better because you can start to pick some of the favourites that Franky was really well-known for.

''When you listen to these old classics, you realise what real music is.''

The album features the talents of producer Nick Southwood - who worked on the Oscar nominated song 'Lost Stars' which was recorded by Adam Levine and featured in the 2013 movie 'Begin Again' starring Keira Knightley - bassist Adam King, drummer Adrian Meehan and keyboardist Rich Milner.

'Come Fly With Me' goes on sale on October 16 and marks his first album release on his new label, East West Records/Warner Music.

The pop heartthrob is currently starring on the British ballroom dancing TV show 'Strictly Come Dancing' and is set to embark on a nationwide tour of the UK once his involvement with the show is over.
