‘X Factor’ star Reece Mastin is kicking 2012 off with a bang with the release of his brand new single ‘Shut Up And Kiss Me’!

“It’s just a tongue-in-cheek, muck around song,” he told us this week ahead of the track’s official release today.

But Little Rockers get ready – the singer is promising to take things up a gear this time around!

“It’s a lot rockier” says Reece.

“I loved doing Good Night and it was an awesome song, but it wasn’t rocky enough for me. So we’re kind of pushing towards that rockier stuff.”

And Mastin, who’s enjoyed huge success both here and across the Tasman since he rose to fame on the reality show last year, has plenty of love for the fans that got him here.

“I love hanging out with them…they’re cool people, they’re behind my music and they like the same music I do, so it’s cool.”

But despite all the attention he receives from his adoring female fans, Reece has revealed that he’s definitely still on the market!

“I am at the moment, single and lonely!” he laughed.
