Alexandra Burke album "coming soon"

Former X Factor champ Alexandra Burke has revealed her new album is "coming sooner" than her fans realise.

The 24-year-old songstress is currently in New York City recording tracks for her third chart offering.

Burke - who parted ways from her record company RCA a few weeks ago - revealed what fans can expect from her upcoming release.

Speaking to That Grape Juice she said: "I don't want to put a tag on the music, but at the end of the day my voice is soulful so the music will always be passionate and soulful. I'd describe my 'new sound' as a 'Whitney Houston meets Coldplay'. It's pure, it has influences of pop, soul, R&B, even hip-hop - it's really everything I love.

She added: "But I'm making sure the focus is on my voice. The album is coming sooner than my fans think it is. I'm working on it now. In the meanwhile, I'm looking forward to giving them something as a pure Thank You for their support before that."

Burke recently performed her first US gig alongside Mary J Blige, Erykah Badu and Patti LaBelle for a show to honour music legend Chaka Khan.

Burke excitedly wrote on Twitter ahead of the June 10 event: "My 1st US gig is next week!! Catch me w/ @fatbellybella @maryjblige @MsPattiPatti @Jennifersspot to honour @ChakaKhan #LEGENDS! (sic)."
