Eliza Doolittle has been in Miami writing new music.

The 'Big When I Was Little' singer, who decided to jet off to America for a writing trip, is working on the follow-up to her 2013 record 'In Your Hands' and has been inspired by being in the sun.

Eliza told BANG Showbiz: ''[I've been] writing lots and lots, at home and on trips, like Miami now.

''I'm not sure what and when I'll be releasing [anything] exactly but I'm very excited about new music.''

Asked what inspires her when it comes to writing, she said: ''I'm inspired all the time by interesting people, conversations, films, books, and sometimes just my own heart and guts. I'm always writing things down in my notepad or in my phone. I guess there's always a little pressure but pressure can be great. As long as it's positive I always try to put good pressure on myself to be my best.''

Meanwhile, the 26-year-old star appears in Malibu's new Best Summer Ever video with MTV presenter Lilah Parsons and best friends Jessica Napier and Violetta Thalia, speaking about her summer memories and when she first experienced heart ache while on holiday.

In the promo, she told the girls: ''I remember fancying a break dancer in the club, and I got heartbroken for one of the first times, if not the first time, because he kissed me and then three hours later on the same night in the club he was kissing someone else.''

Talking about her plans for this summer and the festival season, she also told BANG Showbiz: ''I'm gonna be working hard to get new music but i'm still hoping to squeeze a little summer holiday in somehow!

''I'm playing a couple of my own [festivals] and a couple with Disclosure this summer. At Glastonbury I'm definitely gonna be a punter as well as performing. It all depends on the time I'm playing though ... nothing can get in the way of a good show!''
