The 'Losing Sleep' singer says he intends to stick around in the industry and create many more albums.
John Newman says he is certain he has even "better" songs in him than hit single 'Love Me Again', and is looking to the future to ensure he has career longevity.
The UK singer-songwriter launched debut album 'Tribute' towards the end of 2013, and says he is already starting to plan for a new direction on his eventual second record.
"I definitely think I've got better in me, and much better than 'Love Me Again'," John revealed to the Daily Star this week. "I need to set myself up for a career.
"I could've ruined the first album had I thought I was on to something good," he explained. "Now I don't want one hit single or album for my while career, I intend to be around for a long time.
The 'Cheating' singer also opened up about the songwriting process behind his debut album, and admitted it can be difficult to express such negative emotions through song.
"It's a hard process. There are only a couple of positive songs on 'Tribute'," John added. "It was all written during a difficult break-up.
"But my second album will be all change. I'd like to work with other artist I like."
John Newman is one of the artists expected to receive at least one nomination at tonight's BRIT Awards 2013 reveal show.
