Pixie Lott will release her ''fun'' fourth album in January.

The 'Mama Do' singer - who launched her greatest hits album 'Platinum Pixie' with a secret gig in association with Viber yesterday (25.11.14) - has taken a ''fresh'' approach to putting together her upcoming record.

The 23-year-old singer - who is currently appearing on this year's series of 'Strictly Come Dancing' - confessed her time on the BBC One dance competition has inspired the album's ''fun, up-tempo vibe'', and will also be featuring collaborations ''with loads of different producers''.

Pixie told BANG Showbiz: ''The album in January is just going to be my fourth album. We've already got the sessions booked in. We're going to go to New York, LA.

''My last album, I wanted it to be really organic, I worked with like a small group of people, but this album, I think after just dancing and stuff, I want to do more of a fun, up-tempo vibe, do some collaborations, do something fresh and be up for working with loads of different producers.''

The blonde beauty - who was joined at the secret London gig by fans who had been following her Public Chat on the Viber messaging app - has also teamed up with rapper Plan B's writing team and is keen to duet with some of her favourite British artists in the future.

She said: ''I have got a session next month with Plan B's writers. It's really hard to schedule anything this month because I don't know when I'm going to be chucked off Strictly.

''I love the British talent, like Ed Sheeran, Labrinth, Disclosure, Rudimental. I think we've got loads of homegrown talent.''
