At a recent concert, Rita Ora told 97.1AMP/Los Angeles she celebrates Halloween differently in London.

“In London, we don’t do Halloween as much as they do out here,” she said. “Here, you guys have a parade, you all dress up.”

Ora explained that when she’s not shopping or “Skyping” to family while here in the U.S., she continues to write for her debut album Ora.

“I have a laptop [and] microphone,” she said. “It doesn’t sound too great, [but] it gets down all the ideas for me and the band.  Me and the guitar player had to jam out in the car. It’s great to keep your mind creative.  You have to keep it going.”

As far as the U.S. release of the new album is concerned, the 21-year-old says, “I would love to release it right now because I’ve been waiting to release it in the States for ages — but it’s going to be released in the first quarter of next year because I want to add on three exclusive tracks.”

Ora will be all across the U.S.  in the upcoming months for MTV Presents: The ORA Tour, which kicked off October 23 in Santa Ana. She’ll also be the musical guest on The Late Show with David Letterman on Halloween night.
