Pixie Lott has bared her "soul" on her new album.
The 'All About Tonight' singer will release her self-titled record next month, and explained her third LP showed off her influence in a way she wished that her second full-length had.
She told Fault magazine: "[I grew up with music that was] very soul influenced but current ... "I grew up listening to music from the '60s and '70s and mixed that with who I am.
"It's the favourite album I've made so far. It best represents me, which is why I named it 'Pixie Lott'.
"I knew I wanted it to have a cohesive sound and not lose the soul. It's what I wanted my second album to be, but that didn't end up happening."
Meanwhile, the blonde star also revealed that her songwriting was inspired by a love of live music - and she tried to reflect that in the "new sound" of the record.
She added: "There is no better feeling for me than singing live for people and I really want that to come across, especially with the new sound of my new album."
