Famed X Factor UK twins Jedward — John and Edward Grimes — are coming out with a new single and it was inspired by figure skater Gracie Gold!
The 22-year-old brothers recently appeared on TV3′s Late Lunch Live to chat up their new album and title single, “Free Spirit”, which was only inspired by their fans but also by Gracie, 18.
“It’s such an honor to have inspired @planetjedward’s new song, “Free Spirit”! You guys are amazing!” Gracie thanked them in a cute tweet.
Edward spoke about the new album, “Since October, we have been working on our album, we have had three albums to date, but this is the first album written and produced by us.”
“Each song reflects a different mood and emotion, which our fans can associate with. Over the last year we have gone through a transition as artists, we have had time to reflect about life and put those thoughts into our songs,” John added.
“Free Spirit” is out on May 17th.

Gracie Gold, Ashley Wagner and Polina Edmunds have completed their competition season, grabbing top 10 spots during the 2014 ISU World Figure Skating Championships at Saitama Super Arena on Saturday night (March 29) in Saitama, Japan.
The three Team USA figure skaters maintained their three spots for next year’s competition, placing 5th, 7th, and 8th, respectively.
So, who took home the title for a third time? Japan’s Mao Asada!
“I was able to control myself and I have done what I had to do,” Mao shared with reporters afterward. “I was much more nervous than I was for the short program but the cheering from the fans was with me and made me relax.”
Mao also won the title in 2008 and 2010. Russia’s Yulia Lipnitskaya and Italy’s Carolina Kostner took home the silver and bronze.
Gracie Gold, Ashley Wagner and Italy’s Carolina Kostner glide across the ice during the short program at the 2014 ISU World Figure Skating Championships held at Saitama Super Arena on Thursday afternoon (March 27) in Saitama, Japan.
Currently, Japan’s Mao Asada sits on top of the leaderboard with 78.66 points, followed by Carolina earning 77.24 and Russia’s Yulia Lipnitskaya, with 74.54.
Gracie, 18, is in 5th at the moment, with Ashley, 22, in 7th and Polina Edmunds in 12th.
Remember, the top two U.S. finishes must add up to 13 or less to keep the three spots at the world championships for next year.
“There is. . .a lot of pressure for the United States to keep the three spots we already have,” Ashley shared. “It’s one of those times where maybe I’m tired but I’m not going to be selfish. I’m thinking about everybody else who might be going to worlds next year.”
