Alexandra Burke insists creating her EP 'Renegade' was all about going ''against what people think they know'' about her.
Alexandra Burke is ''rebelling'' against the music industry with her new EP.
The 26-year-old singer insists her motivation to record and self-release 'Renegade' was to go ''against what people think they know'' about her, having self-funded it ''completely independently''.
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, Alexandra said: '''Renegade' means being rebellious, and I'm at a point where I'm quite rebellious, simply because it's all independent, it's all me.
''I wanted to go against what people think they know about me, and I wanted to put out there what my personality is and who I am through my music, so this EP as a whole shows that, and shows who I am.''
'Renegade' sounds very different to any of the former 'X Factor' winner's previous hits, like 'Broken Heels' and 'Bad Boys', but Alexandra has said that this new rockier sound is more ''true'' to who she is as an artist.
She said: ''I wanted to be completely independent, and self-funded, and wanted it to be a gift for my fans, but wanted it to be true to who I am. So I went away and made some mood boards, visually and musically, and then literally that's how it came about.
''It was a conscious (effort to be different) in that respect, because I was like, 'this is how I want it to roll and this is how I want it to go', but then at the same time it came out naturally, it all just flowed.''
