“It’s been a steep learning curve for all the team as there are technical obstacles to navigate but I’m so thankful to be able to continue work on my album in this way,” she said.
“I’ve been riding the emotional wave along with the rest of the world, but creativity has to be a bit help,” she said.
She previously told GQ that the new album will be drenched in “grown-up disco”.
“It’s difficult for me to explain,” she said, “but even grown-ups need some pure pop fun.”
She added: “There’s a lot of early 2000s love around at the moment.
“Both feel like good times for me, so I’m channelling that into this record.
“The songs that are pure escapism have even stronger purpose.”
