Susan Boyle writing own music
Susan Boyle is learning to write her own songs for her planned seventh album
Susan Boyle is learning to write her own songs.
The former 'Britain's Got Talent' star has amassed a £75 million fortune from recording albums of cover tracks, but the 53-year-old singer is now keen to pen her own music.
A source said: "Susan loves singing but she has decided that she wants to change direction with the music she is putting out there and write it herself. So she is learning how it's done properly.
"She will be putting original hits on her seventh album, and she has already began work on it.
"She is taking lots of advice and is being taught how to do it so it can be the best standard possible for her fans.
"So far all of the songs she has put out there have been written by others and as much as she wants to continue to belt out songs she loves, she knows musicians have to evolve.
"Susan is the last person to be motivated by money - she doesn't spend what she's got already - but her new plan will make her millions."
But Susan - who recently revealed she has found her first boyfriend, a US doctor - isn't planning a radical change in musical direction as she still wants to keep her existing fanbase happy.
The source added to the Daily Mirror newspaper: "She is also looking to find some brilliantly talented singers to collaborate with. Susan knows who her fans are, she's not looking for a new fan base, she just wants to give them something different."
