Corinne not looking for duets

Corinne Bailey Rae isn't interested in collaborations at the moment - as she wants to "just keep at it on my own for a bit."
The singer told Absolute Radio's Geoff Lloyd: "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.
"This album I've done, it's the first time I've co-produced, it's an album I've written, I've written all the songs on my own, I haven't done co-writes with people, and that's what I enjoy."
The 30-year-old shouldn't be short of offers should she ever decide to team up. The singer counts Motown Legend Stevie Wonder as a friend saying: "I like to just hang out with him now. It's 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', I like him and I'll happily talk to him, and no one knows I'm speaking to him and I'll call him, no one knows."
She continued: "He's very, very sound and very funny, and he has no sort of showbiz persona at all, you know."
