Just hitting stores this week is "Forever For Now," the first album in a decade from singer and songwriter LP (real name Laura Pergolizzi).

LP is best known these days as a songwriter for Rihanna ("Cheers (Drink To That)"), Christina Aguilera ("Beautiful People") and others, but she reactivated her performing career with the 2012 "Into the Wild (Live at EastWest Studios)" EP -- whose title track was used for popular Citibank ad campaign -- and now the album which is led by the single "Night Like This."

But even though the focus is on her own work now, LP tells us that we'll still be seeing her name in the credits of other artists' albums:

"I'm not stopping writing for other people. Cher Lloyd has one of my songs right now ('Human')  that just came out on her new record ('Sorry I'm Late'). I have a song with an amazing singer from England, Ella Henderson, and there'll be more. I write too much to ever keep everything just for myself."

LP has performances lined up this week in Baltimore, New York City and Nashville to promote "Forever For Now." She'll also play 12 dates with Phillip Phillips and O.A.R. in June, starting June 12 in St. Louis.
