Katy B has said that her forthcoming new album is more focussed on "real life" than her debut LP.

The singer has been working on the follow-up to her first record 'On A Mission', and revealed the differences between the two albums in an interview with Metro.

"My first album was my life from when I was 18 to 21, and I guess this is my life from 21 to 24," she said. "It is obviously a lot different to what my life was like at university and I've tried to keep some of the things that make a Katy B song – I love writing about moments in my life. Even though they might seem quite small and non-important [they] are kind of special."

The singer then said that, while she was "in this kind of fantasy" when making her first record, the new album would be "a bit more… this is real life." She added: "There are still going to be lots of songs about me and my little adventures around London but then at the same time I've had experiences in love and life that have been about this period of my life."

Katy B will be playing V Festival next month. Kings Of Leon and Beyoncé will headline this year's event, which takes place over the weekend of August 17-18 at Hylands Park, Chelmsford and Weston Park, Staffordshire. Also set to play the festival are Two Door Cinema Club, The Vaccines, Stereophonics, The Courteeners, Kendrick Lamar, Jessie Ware, and Maximo Park. For more information, visit: VFestival.com.
