Emeli Sandé is writing songs for Rihanna's new album.

The 27-year-old singer is set to pen tracks for the follow-up to Rihanna's 2012 hit record, Unapologetic.

Speaking at the Ivor Novello Awards yesterday (May 23), Sandé said: "There's been a lot going on. I've been back in [the studio] with Naughty Boy, which has been amazing.

"I've been writing for Rihanna...which has been incredible. I was with Rodney Jerkins the other night. I feel now I'm back in creative mode."

Sandé has previously written tracks for well-known artists  like Cher Lloyd, Susan Boyle, Leona Lewis, Cheryl Cole and Tinie Tempah.
