Sky Ferreira has named her new album 'Masochism'.

The 22-year-old singer has confirmed the title of the LP to music website MuuMuse following fan speculation online and a post on the site speculating about the possible name of the record.

After confirming the title, Sky then took to her Twitter account to reveal how she came up with it, admitting it was a very different process to how she named her 2013 album 'Night Time, My Time'.

She posted: ''I've known the album title since last May (I was on a flight from Seattle to Dublin) & wrote the song onboard next to @SirJohnnyDanger ... Aka the complete opposite of how I named Night Time, My Time lol (sic)''

'Masochism' doesn't currently have a release date, but it is known that Sky has been working with Primal Scream's Bobby Gillespie and Andrew Innes on the record.

Previously speaking about being in the studio with Bobby and Andrew, she said: ''The reason I like working with them is because there's absolutely no pressure. [Bobby's former group] Jesus and Mary Chain is one of my favourite bands ever, so at first I was a little nervous. It's really nice to meet with someone and not be disappointed by it, to have them meet every expectation.''

Sky has been playing her new song 'Guardian' on her most recent tour of North America, and it's likely to be on the 'Masochism' tracklist.

A fan uploaded a video of Sky singing the new track online in November 2014, and then the singer shared a studio version of the song on Instagram.

Along with a clip of the song, Sky wrote: ''Part of the 'Guardian' demo. I'll put the actual song out early next year with a SICK video by @grant_singer. MORE TO COME! (sic)''
