Estelle won Glamour Magazine's special editor's award 2009

Estelle has revealed she's working with a number of producers on her new album.

Wyclef Jean, Black Eyed Peas' and TV On The Radio's Dave Sitek have all begun work on the follow-up to 2008's Shine.

The singer wouldn't confirm whether rapper Kanye West would appear on the LP, as he did on number one single American Boy.

Estelle said: "I'm just recording this new album, I'm sick of singing American Boy, so I should do something new."

Estelle confirmed a number of big name producers have begun helping her work on new material.

"Swizz Beatz, Wyclef, I think we're going in with next week again.

"A new guy called Dave Sitek from TV On The Radio - an amazing producer and brand new guy called Alex The Kid, he's from London as well. I'm putting the features together now so it's coming together.

"It's going great, big songs, big hooks. More of the same, but some freshness. Big producers, same thing."

A title and release date have yet to be confirmed for the album.
