Kate Nash gets busy on new record

Nash wrote some of her new songs on the road in Australia

Kate Nash has revealed that she has laid down up to 16 new songs for her forthcoming second album.

The north London singer, who has set a summer deadline for the follow up to her number one debut Made Of Bricks, said she is currently looking for a producer to help her finish the record.

"I've done a bunch of demos," Nash said.

"I've got about 14 to 16 songs recorded and I'm going to do another session at the end of the month."

The singer, who is currently dating The Cribs frontman, Ryan Jarman, previously told Newsbeat that her album would have a harder sound than her witty pop driven debut.

Reinforcing her intention to change direction Nash promised: "It's really cool. I've been doing a lot of writing and I'm excited about getting stuck into new material.

"It's different and it's fun to be doing something new."

She previously previewed two new tracks - Froggy and I Hate Seagulls - at an intimate gig at the Matter music venue in east London in October last year.

Both songs were penned while she was out on the road in Australia.

Another track which could feature on the record is Cat Song, a tune written in honour of sixties girl group The Supremes.

Nash is planning to complete recording sessions for her new album over the next couple of months before it is released later this year.

Kate Nash was talking to Newsbeat's music reporter Greg Cochrane.
