Saara Aalto is already in the recording studio to work on her upcoming album.

It follows the X Factor 2016 runner up confirming news of a five album record deal with Sony Music last month.

Saara first announced news of her deal just before Christmas, saying: "I have this record deal with Sony Music UK and Sony Music Finland, together so we're going to make a very global album next year. I can't wait to get back to work next year."

Saara concluded: "It's going to be very exciting... YAY!"

The Finnish singer is back in the UK right now and recording songs for her first of what could be FIVE albums.

Tweeting from a London music studio, Saara teased: "Honestly an amazing studio day with Sara Eker and Paul Meehan at Metrophonic studios!! We might have THE song right here"

Speaking last month, Saara revealed she had big plans for her first record following on from The X Factor.

"I’m now working with some of the best songwriters in the world and Sia has written a song that has been given to me," Saara teased. "Oh my god, it’s just insane.

"I think Sia is a pretty good reference for me because her way of singing and the way she composes the melodies and writes the lyrics is very similar to what I’ve always done. "

She continued: "I describe my own music as epic love pop. I don’t want to sing about going to a party with friends, I want to sing meaningful songs that can inspire people and I think Sia’s songs are really deep."

As well as her record deal and also a potential TV show, Saara is set for The X Factor live tour this Spring.

She'll be joined by Matt Terry, 5 After Midnight, Emily Middlemas, Honey G, Ryan Lawrie, Samantha Lavery and 4 Of Diamonds on the line up.
