Corinne Bailey Rae isn't interested in collaborating with other artists.

The 'Put Your Records On' hitmaker - who recently returned to the music scene with second album 'The Sea' after a two-year hiatus - thinks she needs to work alone in order to get more confident in her own abilities.

Speaking to Absolute Radio's Geoff Lloyd at this weekend's Latitude Festival, she explained: "I always get asked, 'Oh who would you like to collaborate with?' and I just feel like as a musician I'm still finding my feet.

"You know, this album I've done, it's the first time I've co-produced. It's an album I've written and I've written all the songs on my own, I haven't done co-writes with people, and that's what I enjoy. So I think in terms of collaborating with people, I like to just keep at it on my own for a bit."

The 31-year-old singer and songwriter admitted while she is a friend of Motown legend Stevie Wonder, she would never want to "leech" off his fame by singing with him.

She said: "You know, I like to just hang out with him now. Its funny, you meet people and you sort of like them a lot and you're not trying to sort of leech them. I'm not trying to leech his fame, you know, so I'm not like, 'Oh shine your fame light on me'."
