Beyonce Knowles has confirmed she will release a new album next year.

The 'Halo' singer - who released her last album, 'I Am... Sasha Fierce' at the end of 2008 - revealed her plans to work on a new LP during the next 12 months while she was performing to crowds at a concert in Nottingham, England at the weekend.

She told fans at the Trent FM Arena on Saturday (21.11.09): "I'll see you in a year with a new album."

Beyonce has spent the majority of this year touring and has released eight singles from the LP over the past few months.

Earlier this month, Beyonce was the most successful star at the MTV Europe Music Awards, scooping three prizes at the coveted ceremony.

After performing in a skimpy red corset and suspenders, she was awarded the prize for Best Song for her track 'Halo', Best Video for her hit record 'Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)' and also scooped the Best Female Singer honour.
