Alexandra Burke is recording two songs a night for her new album.
The 'Broken Heels' singer is hard at work on her third record, and laying down a huge amount of tracks for it, which she will then choose the best from for the final album.
She said: ''I've actually built a studio in my house, downstairs, I'm literally in it every day, recording, l'm flying to the states a lot, I've been in Los Angeles and New York a lot, and if the producers cant' fly to me I fly to them.
''I have recorded maybe 15 songs, I usually do 60 to 70 songs for an album and whittle it down. It stretches me, I've been doing two songs a night.''
Alexandra, 24, has also been writing plenty of the material she is recoding, but her focus remains singing.
She added: ''I co-write a lot. For me, a song is a song, I mean, [singer] Daniel Bedingfield wrote his biggest hit in his bedroom. It could come from anywhere, as long as the lyric is great, the melody is great and it's a great song. I just want people to hear my voice. I don't want that to sound cliché, but as an artist you want people to hear what you do best.''
Alex added: ''We're always chilling out together, we were in the studio - not working together, but just chilling, listening to music - but he's one of my really good friends and he's a great boy.''
