Ella Henderson talks about the large gap between her two albums on The Record Club: "I had nothing to write about"

It turns out that releasing a Number 1, international smash hit record when you're 18 comes with its own complications.

Ella Henderson has addressed the nearly eight year-long wait between her two albums.

Ella was this week's guest on The Record Club with Bowers & Wilkins, where she talked to Jess Iszatt about the gap between 2014's Chapter One and the just-released Everything I Didn't Say.

"I think that anyone who knows my journey [...] it's been really bizarre for me. Obviously, [The X Factor] was 10 years ago now. I don't think I realised how young I was when it started."

Ella adds, "[The long wait] was never an intentional thing. When I came back [after touring Chapter One] I realised I had nothing to write about that was relatable. My life had gone crazy, and I feel like everything I write about is really personal."

In an interview with OfficialCharts.com on the day of Everything I Didn't Say's release, Ella also opened up about how the success of her Number 1 single Ghost made her realise that she needed to "take a step back...I needed to live."
