Scottish singer Susan Boyle is hoping to change her musical direction by recording a jazz album.

The star has released five albums since she shot to fame on U.K. Tv show Britain's Got Talent in 2009, and her recordings have mostly featured covers of popular songs and standards.

However, Boyle hopes her next record will feature a totally different style, according to Scotland's Deadline News.

She says, "I'd love to do a jazz album next time. It would be an entire break from what I'm use to doing. It's a challenging area and very specialised. Jazz is something I would really like to be involved in. Watch this space - anything can happen."
