Jade Ewen is promising Sugababes fans more music is on the way.
"We've been busy recording, we're working on the new material for the next album," the 23-year-old singer said.
She added: "It seems as though we've gone away and we're not doing any work, but we're doing a lot - I'm very tired."
Jade re-recorded vocals for the last album, Sweet 7, after joining the group in 2009, following the departure of original member, Keisha Buchanan.
The next record will be the first full album she has worked on.
As well as music, Jade has recently tried her hand at modelling as the face of Miss Ultimo lingerie, and is also interested in acting.
Her boyfriend, EastEnders star Ricky Norwood, backs her on-screen aspirations, he said: "She is a great actress."
