Tulisa Contostavlos Going "Back To Basics" For New Album: "I Want It To Be More Urban"

19 March 2013, 12:18

The 'Live It Up' star is gearing up to start recording new music back in the UK.

Tulisa Contostavlos has vowed to go "back to basics" for her second solo record and wants to create a more UK centric sound for her new music.

The 'Young' singer arrived with debut album 'The Female Boss' last year but claims she will be working on new music with a different sound over the coming months.

"I'm going to make a few singles soon and I want to take my sound back to basics," Tulisa revealed to the Daily Star this week. "I just want to make songs that I really love from now on.

"My first single 'Young' got to No. 1, and that's because it was a very UK-sounding track," the N-Dubz singer explained. "And I realise now that's what the fans want."

Despite her debut solo album 'The Female Boss' not performing as well as she expected, The X Factor UK judge insists she "wouldn't change a thing" about the record.

Tulisa gave even a hint about the sound fans can expect for her next studio outing when she confirmed she won't be heading back to America to work with producers like The Dream, as she did on her first album.

"I said no as I want to be more urban," Tulisa revealed. "And I won't guest on anyone else's records for the foreseeable future. I want to conjure up my own hits first."

The past two weeks have seen widespread rumours Tulisa may be set to leave The X Factor UK after two years on the panel, with reports suggesting Sharon Osbourne may be signed up as a replacement.

Tulisa Contostavlos reassured fans this week by confirming no such decision has been made and saying she would love to return to the ITV show this year.
