Rihanna wants new sound for album
Rihanna has revealed she has started thinking of ideas for her seventh album.
The We Found Love singer, who makes her acting debut in new movie Battleship, is soaking up inspiration and influences for the upcoming record.
"I am in the early stages of collecting and putting a team together right now that I want to work with," she said.
"I'm travelling around the world, finding new sounds, new producers that people don't really know of so I can't really say."
Rihanna - who released her sixth album, Talk That Talk, last year - said she is searching for a new sound.
"Always. Every album is a step ahead from the one behind. I love experimenting and I love working with different sounds and putting them together so they're not one-dimensional," she added.
