Marvin broke the news on Wednesday morning live on Capital XTRA, who tweeted beforehand to get fans at the ready. "We speak to @MarvinHumes next and he has a big secret to reveal! K&J X," wrote the radio station.
Shortly afterwards, Capital FM tweeted: "Cheeky cheeky @MarvinHumes! Releasing some HOT music and not telling us!!"
Rochelle Humes' husband thanked fans for their support after their excitement had flooded in.
"Thanks to everyone for all the support for @LuvBug! You can pre-order #Resonance now on @itunesmusic," he wrote.

The Voice host told The Sun: "A conventional solo career never interested me. JLS was such a big thing and my passion wasn't to be the front person any more. I want to write, produce and bring in different singers on projects.
"I look up to Calvin Harris, Avicii and David Guetta. They are mega-stars now, even though they're DJs and producers."
Marvin added: "I've literally recorded a few lines on one song. It's not about that. I&rsquove hung up my singing boots."
