Iggy Azalea is hoping to release her new "up-tempo" album later this year after having an unexpected period of time to work on the collection having been forced to delay her spring tour

Iggy Azalea hopes to release her new "up-tempo" album later this year.

The 'Fancy' hitmaker has revealed she is hard at work on the follow-up to 2014's 'The New Classic' and is hoping to get it finished in the next few months after having to reschedule her spring tour until September due to "production delays."

She explained: "I didn't anticipate having any time to completely finish it, but now that I have kind of the time, I'd love to have an album at the end of 2015."

The 24-year-old singer - who recently worked with Britney Spears on the as-yet unreleased single 'Pretty Girls' - also spoke about the themes which will influence her next release, saying it will be a lot more "fun" and "girly" than her debut release, because that was all about the struggle of breaking into the music industry, which she has now done.

She elaborated: "My first album got pushed back so many times and it was really, probably like two years of recording on and off, not the entire time, but it was a real struggle and I think that was something that really like reflected in my album a lot -- I talk about trying to make it, trying to breakthrough.

"So my second album, now I don't have this problem. So I hope it's a little bit more up-tempo and just really fun. I just want to have something so summer and so girly, so loud and obnoxious and braggadocios."
