Miles Kane has spoken about the importance of finding the right producer to work with on new material.
The singer says that he hoped to make his next record later this year and that it would be released in 2013.
Kane released his debut album Colour of the Trap in 2011 and reached number 11 in the UK album chart.
The 25-year-old has previously been a member of The Rascals and The Last Shadow Puppets, where he shared singing duties with Alex Turner of Arctic Monkeys.
The singer was talking to Newsbeat's entertainment reporter Steve Holden.
