"I'm now working with some of the best songwriters in the world and Sia has written a song that has been given to me," Saara told the tabloid. "Oh my god, it's just insane.

"I think Sia is a pretty good reference for me because her way of ­singing and the way she composes the melodies and writes the lyrics is very similar to what I've always done."

Saara will start work on her album in the new year.
