London: British singer Jessie J says there will be a "lot more pain" in the lyrics of her next album.
The 23-year-old is planning to explore the darker side of her character and the struggles she had before she was famous for her upcoming record.
"There will be a lot more pain in the lyrics on my next album. For the seven years before I signed my record deal I was in a bad place and I was scared that I couldn`t get out of it."That`s why I wrote such upbeat music, as a way of trying to escape how I felt," contactmusic.com quoted Jessie as saying.
"Now that I am happier, I won`t be afraid to explore my pain. But in a good way; it`ll be me saying that it`s OK not to feel OK," she added.
