At present I am working on my new album, a new concept and more foreign performances”, said Ira Losco with reference to her busy promotional tour. Ira is currently working on her new album expected to be released at the end of this year.

According to Howard Keith she is writing and recording her own music. There are high expectations for her new album following her last successful album entitled Fortune tller which still enjoys extensive radio play and a number 1 spot on the leading radio stations.
