Born before the Sun (independently released through 9LoveRecords) is the new album from Altiyan Childs and is a collection of material recorded over the past fifteen years. As you may recall, Childs won the second season of The X Factor Australia in 2010.
His self-titled debut would become a hit. Following that, the smooth sailing hit rougher waters. Among his much-publicised affairs was his falling out with former mentor Ronan Keating, as well as a departure from Sony Music Australia. Still, you don’t come this far without being able to take (and give) a few punches.
