Becky Hill: Album is 99 per cent done

Becky Hill's debut album is "99 per cent done".

The 21-year-old singer/songwriter has been working on the record for a couple of years but teased she's now putting the finishing touches to it so she can release it in the new year.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, she said: "It's literally 99 per cent done so we're ready to release next year. I really don't feel any pressure. The only pressure I feel is from the fans who I want to give new music to."

However it's been a long time in the making which means she's struggled to pick the songs for the LP, as there are so many to choose from.

She admitted: "Over the past three years I've written about 250 songs, so there's a lot of music there, but some of the songs that I am singing now, I wrote two years ago when I was 19. So I'm writing all the time for my project as well as writing for other people, so there's a lot of people there and it's just about trying to get that good five per cent that will make that first album."

And while she's most well-known for lending her vocals to huge dance hits such as 'Gecko (Overdrive)' by Oliver Heldens and 'Afterglow' by Wilkinson, she's not keen to feature on too many more for the time being because she needs to focus on her own music.

She explained: "What's difficult is giving away a song to an artist and them wanting me to sing on it, and then me being like, 'I can't sing it, because I can't feature on everybody's song' and them saying, 'Yeah, but we can't find anyone who sings it like you do' and I'm like, 'Yeah because I wrote it!' But then they're like, 'We're not putting this out unless you sing on it!'"
