The X Factor USA winner is due to release Truly in early 2013, having worked with producers including Rodney 'Darkchild' Jerkins and 'Tricky' Stewart.
"It's definitely a perfection thing. We want to put out the best for my fans, for everyone, so we're taking our time on it," Amaro told MTV.
"I know [the album] is taking extra time. I guess Epic wants a little bit more from me, they want me to do my very best. It's good to know they're taking time because they want perfection. I'm looking forward to it.
"Epic definitely threw some good songs out, some good writers, so I think it should go really well on the album. I think everything on the album is from me basically; everything has to do with [my] real life. It's different genres, different styles.
"I always tell people that it's going to be a very eclectic album, something you can sit down and listen to and enjoy my voice or you can get up and dance and sing along.
"It's definitely an album you want to play in your car so you can blast it while driving on the 405. That will put a smile on your face."
