The 26 year old's news emerges after wrapping an international tour, which allowed him to perform in America for the first time, and landing a Grammy nomination for Best Latin Pop Album for Terral.

He was also named the top-selling artist in Spain last year (14) and won prizes for best national artist and best national song for Pasos de Cero at the Premios 40 Principales music awards earlier this month (Dec15).

Alboran now plans to head to the U.S. in March (16), when he will begin to study English and take guitar lessons. He hopes to use his new talents to write songs in English in a bid to expand his career globally.

However, he won't be using his linguistic skills on his next album as his new material will be in Spanish, according to Billboard.com.
