FOLLOWING months of speculation, Ireland and the UK’s greatest all girl band have announced their return with a new singled, a new album and a tour.
Cheryl, Kimberley, Nadine, Nicola and Sarah held a press conference to announce their plans.
The new single ‘Something New’ will be released on 18th November through Polydor Records. It is the Official Single for BBC Children In Need 2012. The girls will perform the song for the first time on Children In Need on November 16.
The single will be followed by the album ‘Ten’ which is a collection of the BRIT award-winning group’s singles over the last ten years as well as four new songs which the girls worked on over the past year.
‘Ten’ will be released on November 23. It is the first time all of Girls Aloud’s greatest hits are together on one disc.
Disc two of the deluxe version of the album will be completely decided by the fans as they will be able to vote for the songs they want included. The list of songs they can choose from spans the entire Girls Aloud catalogue from album tracks through to B-sides.
Girls Aloud will be back on tour next year with ‘Ten — The Hits Tour 2013’.
As part of the tour they will perform at the Odyssey Arena, Belfast on March 13. Tickets are available from www.girlsaloud.com and www.ticketmaster.ie
Since they debuted with Sound Of The Underground in 2002, Girls Aloud have had 20 top ten singles and four number ones. Each of their five albums have gone platinum or above. In total they have sold over eight million records and have clocked up over 45 million You Tube views.
