The 'Fight For You' star admits the experience has helped to make him a better song writer.
Jason Derulo has confessed that he has begun work on his new studio album.
The 'Whatcha Say' star was forced to cancel his 'Future History' world tour earlier this year after fracturing his neck during rehearsals for the jaunt and has confessed that the experience and recovery has enabled him to develop as a writer.
He told the Daily Telegraph: "They say that to write great songs, you have to live and experience things, and this whole near-death experience has just opened so many new ideas and new concepts of what really matters in life to me. Putting the stresses into music takes the stresses out of my life.
"I've always been a studio writer, never really the kind of person who writes in other places, but lately I've been waking up in the middle of the night and having so much to say."
The American star, who recently confirmed his relationship with Jordin Sparks, added that the accident has given him a new perspective on life and he can now take in some of his accomplishments which flashed him by over the past few years.
"The whole process has slowed the world down and I am able to see things from a new perspective. It has been go, go, go for the past couple of years and I didn't really have a chance to take it all in," he confessed.
