If you haven't heard Ronika's terrific 2014 debut album, Selectadisc, you're in that privileged position of still being able to discover it for the very first time and, as of last week, that treat has basically doubled in size with the release of that record's follow-up, Lose My Cool. So, yeah, you have two brilliant pop albums to add to your essential listening list.

As can be discerned from first single, 'Principle', Lose My Cool combines groove with old-school cool - it's a quality easy listen with DVT-defying beats. Written after the singer-songwriter's move from Nottingham to London, Ronika also produced half of it herself.

You can stream the 15 tracks of the deluxe version below the following interview, in which Ronika takes our Things You Should Know... challenge.

If I had to summarise Lose My Cool in one sentence, it would be...

Jams and grooves inspired by timeless and future classics united by pop devotion.

I chose the title Lose My Cool because...

A lot of the tracks are love songs about losing your cool for somebody. But losing your cool can also be seen as an empowering tool at anyone's disposal. To look, dress and dance in an uncool way is a brave and fearless task and one that should always be respected and encouraged.

The first song I wrote for the album was...

'Principle' and it's the first track on the album.

My working routine on this album involved...

Firstly spending a month making synth sounds and collecting and organising samples and sounds so I created the sound palette I needed to bring the songs to life. Then writing the songs in my home studio, sometimes starting with a beat, sometimes on piano or synth, sometimes lyrics in a diary, whatever came first.

My favourite part of the recording process was when...

I'd totally nail that 48th vocal take. Or when you finally add that missing element the track was missing, usually a handclap (always a handclap). Basically when you have a little breakthrough and it starts to fall into place.

The song that has evolved the most between its initial version and the finished album version is...

Quite a few of them just started off as songs written on the piano because a friend had lent me her piano, so the initial versions were often jazz or gospel chords and progressions with me singing and figuring out the production came afterwards.

The song that took the longest to nail down / get right was...

'Distraction', but only because it had a cursed Ableton session - it would rarely even open and crash relentlessly when it did, impossible to work with. Most of the arrangements were struggling to open by the end, finishing a track sort of felt like running out of a building with a ticking time bomb about to explode behind you.

I knew Lose My Cool was finished when...

I was unable to go out into the daylight without melting anymore.

The song I am most attached to on the album is...

At the moment perhaps 'Better Than Ever' because it's a song about long-term love and I'm about to have a baby girl.

From all of the tracks, the one I am most excited about performing live is...

'Make Your Move' cos we gonna get real funky. Think Morris Day and The Time.

The lyric I am most proud of on the album is...

'So I drag you around behind me like a dead pet on a lead'.
