Alison Moyet has revealed she will need to pick some uplifting songs for The Prince's Trust Spring Ball - because her own songs are too depressing.

The Yazoo star, known for her bluesy voice, will be performing at the glitzy London bash with the Noisettes and Britain's Got Talent finalists Flawless.

"I'll be doing some Yazoo stuff and my own songs, so it'll be a mix up - obviously a lot of my stuff is gloom-laden, so I need to find a way of making it cheerful for that kind of event," she said.

"I don't do so much dancing now on my own so I have to nod back [to Yazoo hits] sometimes if I want to get anything with a pulse."

Alison - who said working with youth charity The Prince's Trust was a "no brainer" - insisted she has no plans to collaborate with the Noisettes or dance troupe Flawless on stage, as she's too shy.

"I'm a bit reclusive and a bit insular so the whole idea of working with anyone sets my stomach a bit weak. I like the idea of interesting collaborations but I'm not someone who puts myself out there so it's about who contacts me first," she said.

:: The Prince's Trust Spring Ball, supported by St Tropez, will take place at The Hurlingham Club in London on March 18.
