Paris Hilton has revealed that she has started working on a second album following her recent release from prison.

The wealthy heiress, who served a 23-day jail sentence for violating probation on a driving ban, told E! Online earlier this week: "I'm already working on my new record."

News of a possible second album from 26-year-old Paris comes despite reports claiming that the Hollywood party girl turned pop star has been dropped by record label Warner Bros.

The company backed her self-titled debut album, Paris, which was released via her own label Heiress Records.

However the 2006 release failed to make much of a mark, reaching just number 29 in the UK album chart despite entering the US Billboard chart at number six.

Paris told E! that she had been working with hip-hop producer Scott Storch on her latest project. The producer helped Paris with her last album and has previously worked with top artists such as Beyonce Knowles and Christina Aguilera.

Whether his efforts will pay off remains to be seen, but if Paris' planned second album proves to be a flop the heiress may decide that she is better off appearing on the covers of records rather than making them.

The socialite features in artwork for the latest Smashing Pumpkins album, Zeitgeist.

Meanwhile it seems that Paris' image is in popular demand, with Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee telling TV Guide magazine that he is planning to turn her into a cartoon superhero.

Paris is reportedly working with him on a new cartoon series for MTV.
