X Factor winner Louisa is hard at work on her debut album, due out later this year.

The teenager became the youngest ever winner of the show last year, triumphing at just 17.

Now the 18-year-old is enjoying a VERY sunny life in LA as she records tracks for her first record.

Speaking after her victory, Louisa said previously she was keen to get working, revealing: “I have so many ideas so it is a case of trying them out.

"I am young and I want to portray myself in a fun you way I think it is a case of me going to the studio and trying things out, and they work, and if they don’t they don’t I will have to keep trying.”

Simon Cowell last week branded Louisa a "great winner" and it seems as though he's spending a lot of money on her.

In pictures posted from the US, Louisa tweeted: "Im so like confused n happy n grateful that i am writing my own music, doing my own thing, being me."

She also revealed in one Instagram post: "Not gonna lie and say that everyday is great. I felt s**t today but wrote a great song because of it.

"Thank you for everything. Idk what i would do without ur support & constant love"

And Louisa teased with her fans: "Cant wait to share everything with u"

There's no exact release date for anything yet but The X Factor winners typically release their debut albums around October or November time.

However new singles have be known to come a little sooner: Little Mix released Wings in August the year after they won.

Whenever the new songs drop, we can't wait!
