Alexandra Burke's second album will push "colourful fake walls apart"

Alexandra Burke has revealed that her main intention with her second album was to "add colour" to her career and body of work.

Speaking to the NME, the 'Elephant' songstress explained that she wanted to manifest her own personal growth and progress with the new set of songs and aimed for them to be less "black and white" than those on her debut record:

"I am pushing colourful fake walls apart. It's colourful, it's pretty, it's just really a step - not a step ahead, but with the last album it was all black and white and that's what I didn't want on this album."

"I wanted colour. It is a whole different thing. I'm hoping that when people hear this album, they can see the growth."

Burke added that in order to finish off the album she needs a duet with her mother Melissa Bell, who sang as part of 90s group Soul II Soul, although it may take some time because she suffers from a kidney disease:

"She is a big influence. She does backing vocals on it already. Now I want a duet with her. I have to be careful because my mummy's not too well. She can't get up and sing as much as I want her to. But I'd like her on a track. It's not finished until she's on it."
