The 'Stay Awake' rapper is already well into the writing process for his next studio album.

Example has revealed he already has six songs penned for the follow-up to his 2011 album 'Playing In The Shadows'.

The 'Midnight Run' rapper is currently taking a break in Australia, where he has started working on his upcoming fourth studio record

"Written 6 songs for the next album so far," Example tweeted yesterday (17th January). "Just realized 4 of the songs begun with 'C'." 

The post follows a previous tweet earlier this week in which the 'Stay Awake' rapper said he had been having a "very productive day in the studio".

The 'Changed The Way You Kissed Me' star also revealed he will be announcing several new tour dates over the next few days.

"Woke up to news that my Milan and Brussels gigs are being upgraded to bigger venues due to demand…," he posted. "Should also be announcing shows in Finland, Estonia and Russia in the next week."

Example signed a major US record deal earlier this month with Mercury/Universal and is due to return to the UK in time for his headline tour this April.
