  • Cheryl Cole wants to keep the 'Girls Aloud spirit alive' and is teaming up with former bandmate Nicola Roberts for her upcoming album

    Cheryl Cole wants to keep the ‘Girls Aloud spirit alive’ and is teaming up with former bandmate Nicola Roberts for her upcoming album.

    Girls Aloud fans will be thrilled that a mini-reunion of sorts is taking place between Cheryl Cole and Nicola Roberts, who are reportedly collaborating on songs together for Cheryl‘s upcoming fourth solo album, due to be released in 2014.

    The Mirror reports that Nicola who helped pen a track for Little Mix’s album, DNA, in between working the fashion and beauty scenes, is brainstorming song ideas with Cheryl and will be helping her co-write tunes for her new release.

    ‘This seemed like the perfect opportunity to keep some of the Girls Aloud spirit alive,’ a source told the publication.

    ‘They’ll get to hang out together and make music – their two favourite things to do.’

    Cheryl has previously joked that she tried to get Nicola to write a song for her third album – but busy Nicola had too many other commitments.

    ‘I was trying to get her to write one but she didn’t have time. Cheers for that, too busy creating lipstick colours,’ Cheryl said.

    Former Girls Aloud bandmates Sarah Harding and Nadine Coyle, who announced her pregnancy in August, are also both on track to launch new albums next year.

    Cheryl showed her Girls Aloud comraderie just last week, when she posted a picture of herself puckering up to Kimberley Walsh‘s A Whole Lot of History poster after attending the launch party for her BFF’s new autobiography.
