Pixie Lott has bared her ''soul'' on her new album.

The 'All About Tonight' singer will release her self-titled record next month, and explained her third LP showed off her influence in a way she wished that her second full-length had.

She told Fault magazine: ''[I grew up with music that was] very soul influenced but current ... ''I grew up listening to music from the '60s and '70s and mixed that with who I am.

''It's the favourite album I've made so far. It best represents me, which is why I named it 'Pixie Lott'.

''I knew I wanted it to have a cohesive sound and not lose the soul. It's what I wanted my second album to be, but that didn't end up happening.''

Meanwhile, the blonde star also revealed that her songwriting was inspired by a love of live music - and she tried to reflect that in the ''new sound'' of the record.

She added: ''There is no better feeling for me than singing live for people and I really want that to come across, especially with the new sound of my new album.''
