Alexandra's album delayed

Reports suggest Alexandra Burke's latest album won't be released until 2012.

The 2008 X-Factor champ was expected to release her album in the next few months, but the Broken Heels star has postponed its release until early 2012, claims The Sun .

While no official explanation has been given, it's possible the delay is due to former X-Factor contestants Cher Lloyd, Leona Lewis, One Direction and Matt Cardle also gearing up for album releases in the coming months.

Alexandra initially denied the rumours via twitter, however, her latest tweet has left the door open for a delay: "Music should never be rushed! If i feel it isn't ready, then I won't release it till it is. BUT if that's the case U WILL hear it 4rm me first!"

Despite the reported postponement of her Sophomore album Burke revealed that her new single will debut on radio next month during a recent webchat via UStream.
