Alexandra Burke works with Emeli Sandé on new album

Scottish singing sensation, Emelie Sande has not only gained attention for her own work, it would seem the pop world are also grappling for her attention, with Alexander Burke being the latest artist to snap her up for her new album.

The X Factor winner is currently completing her long-awaited second LP and has recorded “six albums’ worth of songs” for the “more womanly” and “sexier” record, which is due out around Easter.

“The album has taken inspiration from ’90s club anthems, that’s been a big influence whilst recording. I’ve recorded tracks that are out of my comfort zone but I’m growing up. I’m a woman now!” Burke told the Daily Star Sunday.

Speaking about working with the ‘Next To Me’ singer for the album, Burke said: “[Emeli Sandé] is a real talent and it’s an honour to work with her.”

Burke recently unveiled the artwork for her new single ‘Elephant’, which features DJ Erick Morilloand is released in the UK on March 12.

Sandé has previously described The X Factor as a a dangerous way to become a pop star, but added that it is “brilliant” the show has produced talents like Leona Lewis and Burke.
