Lee Ryan updated his Twitter followers (@LeeRyanMusic) yesterday after sounding downbeat at the prospect of his second solo album ‘Confessions’ getting released by Geffen because of the poor sales of its first single. He hears now that it will get a release, though he’s also looking forward to Blue reuniting. The 27-year-old also joked about the disc’s proposed album cover. Lee writes:

Lee Ryan is reacting to his double a-sided single ‘I Am Who I Am / Secret Love’ only debuting at #33 on the UK singles chart, telling his Twitter followers (@LeeRyanMusic) that the mediocre showing likely means his second solo album ‘Confessions’ won’t get a proper release on Geffen. But the 27-year-old vowed to put it out anyways and said he and his Blue bandmates will be attempting a comeback soon. Lee writes:
