Kate Nash has revealed she has no plans to pen songs solely based on her or her experiences.

The Brit award-winner has been dating The Cribs singer Ryan Jarman since 2007, but hasn't written many love songs on her forthcoming album, My Best Friend Is You.

"There is one song, I Hate Seagulls, which is quite obviously about me - I like to write the truth, I wear my heart on my sleeve, but at the same time I love theatre and fiction and stories as well... I might get bored just writing about myself anyway," she said.

"I'd have to make sure I was always doing interesting stuff wouldn't I, I couldn't just sit in and watch Jeremy Kyle."

Other songs on the album, released next week, are born out of real-life situations, but those of her friends or acquaintances.

"Early Christmas Present, is about someone I know being cheated on," she explained.

"I was talking with Ryan about this guy I knew that had cheated on his girlfriend, and it dawned on us that it was pretty messed up for us to know about it but for her not to. The song's about how it's always the person who should know first that finds out last."

:: Kate releases her second album My Best Friend Is You on April 19.
