X Factor's Saara Aalto is working hard on her new album and it's set to include a Sia track.

Saara signed a record deal with Sony Music both in the UK and her home country of Finland shortly after last year's final.

"Sia has sent a song for me to record which is amazing," Saara spilled this week. “I really love her. Her songs are the best pop music around at the moment; the music and melodies are insane."

The runner up added: “She is one of those people I admire because she has her own style. I would love to be as big as her!

“I’d describe my sound as epic love pop. When I write and record I imagine it as a movie soundtrack. I can’t wait to release an album.”

However before any single releases is The X Factor live tour which Saara is looking forward to after a "bad Christmas".

“I went home to Finland but was really [sick] so spent a lot of time in bed," she told the Chroniclelive, “But now I’m back and the tour will be amazing!"

“Getting to perform shows to thousands of people in big arenas is what I entered the competition for."

Saara is joined on the X Factor live tour by Matt Terry, 5 After Midnight, Emily Middlemas, Honey G, Ryan Lawrie, Samantha Lavery and Four Of Diamonds.
