Katy B has revealed that she has nearly completed work on her second studio album.

The singer released her debut LP 'On A Mission' in 2011 and, in an interview with Billboard, said that the follow-up is now "95 per cent" done. "Everything is great," she said of the record. "I've basically got some great tracks and I think I'll just keep writing until the end. A lot of stuff is getting mixed and mastered at the moment, so you just never know when you can just write something special at the last minute."

Giving further information about the record, she also revealed that there were more tracks which "you can imagine me singing in my bedroom rather than in the middle of a dance floor", and went on to add: "Where I am in my life at the moment, and with my age group as well, I think reality has kind of kicked in.

"When I was 18 or 21, it was very much a feeling of freedom. 'I'm free to be exactly who I am. And my parents aren't telling me what time to come home at night!' And I think this album is more focused on love and relationships and reality as well… having to think that you have to go throughout life, [and] sometimes you don't realise you have to fight for your happiness."

In December of this year, Katy B released a free EP featuring new collaborations with Jessie Ware, Diplo, Wiley and many more. The 'Danger' EP featured four tracks titled 'Aaliyah', 'Danger', 'Got Paid' and 'Light As A Feather'. Other collaborators on the tracks included Iggy Azalea, Zinc, Geeneus and Jacques Greene.
