Katy B has revealed that her new album is about transitioning "from being a girl into womanhood".

The singer, who released her debut LP 'On A Mission' last year and is expected to put out the follow-up in early 2013, told the Daily Star that her latest batch of lyrics had been inspired by "finding out what my responsibilities are".

Speaking about the as-yet-untitled album, she revealed: "Standing on my own two feet is inspiring new lyrics for the album, due out early next year."

She added:

I'm making the transition from being a girl into womanhood and finding out what my responsibilities are. It's the first time I've lived in the real world with bills to pay, and that's coming across in what I'm writing.


In June of this year, Katy B told the same publication that her second studio album would feature less dubstep material than its predecessor. Talking about the record's sound, she said: "It's still a dance album but where 'On A Mission' was very much based around dubstep and house music, the new songs are less about repetitive beats."

In March, meanwhile, producer Mark Ronson – who teamed up with the singer to record 'Anywhere In The World', the theme for Coca-Cola's 2012 Olympics advertisement – claimed that Katy B was the most authentic singer to come out of London since Lily Allen. After scoring a Number Two album with 'On A Mission' after its release in April 2011 – with the LP only being kept off the top spot by Adele's '21' – the singer went on to triumph at this year's NME Awards, taking home the Dancefloor Anthem gong for her track 'Broken Record'.
