Saara Alto is thrilled with her five-album record deal and will even have Sia write a song for her
Sia has written a song for Saara Aalto.
The 'X Factor' runner-up has signed a five-album deal with Sony Music UK and Sony Finland and the Finnish singer is thrilled the 'Chandelier' hitmaker has already given her a song to record.
She said: "I'm now working with some of the best songwriters in the world and Sia has written a song that has been given to me.
"Oh my god, it's just insane. I think Sia is a pretty good reference for me because her way of singing and the way she composes the melodies and writes the lyrics is very similar to what I've always done.
"I describe my own music as epic love pop. I don't want to sing about going to a party with friends, I want to sing meaningful songs that can inspire people and I think Sia's songs are really deep.
"'Chandelier' is about young girls who think they have to please others to be loved and that really touched me. The lyrics are so inspiring and life-changing."
"I think it hasn't really sunk in yet, it's too much, it's too big.
"I'll probably understand in January when we are ready to start work on the tracks."
And after she struck up a bond with Adam Lambert when they performed together on 'The X Factor' final, Saara is also hoping to get into the recording studio with him too.
She told The Sun newspaper: "Adam and I have been tweeting and sending some Instagram messages to each other.
"He used to have a Finnish boyfriend so he has a connection and can even speak some Finnish things.
"We immediately connected and hopefully in the future we can work together - he said it would be really nice to do something together so let's see."
The 29-year-old star is very excited about her new record deal as she believes it will propel her to global stardom.
She said: "It's really exciting because I have two labels from different countries doing it together.
"I have always wanted to be a global singer so it already makes me global because Sony Finland is going to concentrate on Scandinavia - so that would be Finland, Sweden, Estonia - and hopefully Sony Music UK for the rest of Europe.
"We still have lots of meetings and lots of planning so it's very open at the moment."
