Amelia Lily has promised that her album is still on the way.

The X Factor star has been on course to release a debut record ever since making the final of the show in 2011 but so far nothing has hit the charts.

Amelia's released four singles, including the brilliant California, but as yet her first album is still yet to come.

This week she confessed that it's currently "on hold" due to her work in the Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat musical but that new music would be on the way soon.

Amelia told the Coventry Telegraph: "Obviously everything is on hold at the moment, while I’m on tour, but my next single will be ready to go soon, which I’m really excited about."

The 20-year-old went to reveal her happiest memory as "getting back into the X Factor and watching my single climb up the iTunes chart and reaching no 2!"

At the moment, Amelia is starring alongside 2009 X Factor finalist Lloyd Daniels and Dancing On Ice's Matt Lapinskas in a UK tour for Joseph, where Amelia plays the narrator.

"I really feel like I’m reliving my childhood days," she said. "Watching a family member [Amelia's brother Lewis] in it years ago and now I’m in it. It’s really quite fun! Lewis is doing all sorts of things now – he was in Loserville and Wicked."

And it sounds like Amelia would quite like to follow in his footsteps, adding: "My dream role is Elphabe in Wicked."
