Sony Music Entertainment Australia this morning announced the release of The Collective's self-titled mini album, available physically and digitally from December 14.

The mini album will feature new studio recordings including their debut single Surrender, as well as their favourite performances from X Factor. Since its release last Friday, Surrender has reached #3 on the iTunes chart and is already blowing up on Australian airwaves.

Consisting of Julian De Vizio, 17, Jayden Sierra, 18, Will Singe, 19, Trent Bell, 21, and Zach Russell, 22, the boys bonded instantly to form a strong friendship that is bound to be a platform for success.

Originally auditioning for the X Factor as individual acts, these five boys were selected and brought together by the X Factor judges to form a male "super group".  Their musical talents grew bigger and better each week and with the support and guidance of ex-boy band member Ronan Keating, their success comes as no surprise.

Evident from the strong votes by the public and their ever growing social media following, Australia has embraced the new group as the next boy band sensation! Collectively, the boys already have over 225K Twitter followers as well as numerous worldwide trending Twitter topics under their belt.

"We are so excited to be given this opportunity to release some of our music and get it out there to our fans! We are so grateful for our experiences so far and can't wait to see what lies ahead. This is for our fans - we love our Collectors!", says The Collective member, Will Singe.
