The X Factor USA will be no obstacle for new judge Demi Lovato this winter, as she reveals that she'll be hitting the recording studio hard very soon.
The former Disney star, whose single 'Skyscraper' became a global smash last year, revealed at a US promotional appearance that she aims to have unveiled new music by the end of the year.
She said: "After the VMAs I'm goign to get to work on my fourth album for a good two months.
"So hopefully I'll be able to release the new single by December or something like that."
Demi will be seen making her X Factor debut on September 12 on FOX, sitting alongside LA Reid, boss Simon Cowell and fellow newcomer Britney Spears.
She is rumoured to have bagged Nick Jonas to help her whittle down her contestants for the Judges' Houses phase.
Her last album Unbroken was released in September last year.
