Ella Henderson may include her song about her grandfather on her debut album.

The upcoming singer/songwriter auditioned for talent show 'The X Factor' with a song she wrote about her music loving grandfather, and may record a studio version for her debut, which she is currently working on.

She said: "At the moment it's definitely on the cards, but I'm just seeing how it goes. There's a lot of new stuff coming out of me, and I'm mixing up with the stuff that I've written beforehand as well. "There probably is a possibility of me re-recording that track and releasing it. We'll have to wait and see - I've got no idea what exact songs are gonna be on the album yet, but I think I'll definitely be doing something with that song."

Ella is writing all the songs herself or with other songwriters, as she wouldn't feel comfortable performing material which had just been handed to her.

She added: "The main thing for me was knowing that I have as much creativity and I'm involved so much that the one person it has to come from is me, otherwise there's no point in me starting to work on an album at all. I couldn't just sing songs that are given to me - it has to come from me. So, there's definitely a diary laid out and a plan, but there's no time pressure. I'm not under any pressure to get it done by a certain date. It's just when it's ready, it's ready. When I feel like I've written and got everything down that I need to say, that's when I know it'll be the time to release it."

Ella recently teamed up with Peugeot to launch the Peugeot Design Lab Pleyel piano, an instrument designed by the car manufacturer which including many patented features which are the first to be included in piano design for over 100 years.
