Grandma`s death inspired Pixie Lott`s new album

Los Angeles: British singer Pixie Lott says her grandmother`s death inspired her upcoming album.

Her grandmother Amelia passed away in 2012, just as Lott was heading into the studio to begin work on the record, reports

Amelia was suffering from Alzheimer`s disease, which meant she often did not know who the singer was in her final months.

Lott called a temporary halt to recording the album to deal with the death and came back to write several personal tracks about her dark time.

"It`s definitely the lowest point of my life so far. I`ve never had to deal with the loss of someone so close. It`s sad. Alzheimer`s meant she wasn`t the same person she had been but I try to remember her for the person she was and I hope there`s also a positive message in there,” she said.

Lott`s third self-titled album is due for release later this year.
