Foxes has been inspired by Cyndi Lauper and Fleetwood Mac on her new album.
The solo singer recently completed work on her second studio record and admitted the tracks have "elements of 80s", though they don't all have the same sound as her don't recent single 'Body Talk'.
She said: "The album isn't like that, production-wise I definitely pushed 'Body Talk' to a place that the rest isn't necessarily at, but I felt like the song lent itself to that when I wrote it. So the whole album isn't 80s. But there are elements of Fleetwood Mac I really love and I was inspired by a lot of females like Cyndi Lauper when I was writing the album so there are elements of 80s, but not really sonically, it's more in the way it's written."
The 26-year-old star penned the tracks shortly after breaking up from her boyfriend of four years, but they are not downbeat and she instead wanted the record to be "empowering".
She quipped to BANG Showbiz: "It's empowering and about coming out of something and being stronger, rather than 'I hate him, he's a b*****d.'"
