DERRY popstar Nadine Coyle is to join her bandmates in an attempt to â€œgrow upâ€.
While Girls Aloud are still riding high on the success of achieving 15 top ten singles and two number oneâ€™s since their formation in December 2002, Nadine and the â€˜girlsâ€™ have decided to give their fans more mature music.
According to Nadineâ€™s bandmate Kimberley Walsh the band are â€œpursuing an older soundâ€ for their forthcoming album.
The new record will be their fourth studio offering since Sound Of The Underground went to number 2 in January 2003, followed by What Will The Neighbours Say in December 2004 and Chemistry in December 2005.
Kimberley added the group, also consisting of Sarah Harding, Nicola Roberts and Cheryl Tweedy, will work exclusively with long-term collaborators Brian Higgins and Xenomania – the production team behind 14 of their 15 hit singles.
“It should be out before Christmas. I’m not sure what the date is – it depends what time it gets finished. We’re still working on it at the minuteâ€ she said, adding: “It’s kind of like it’s still Girls Aloud, but obviously progressed.
â€œWe’re obviously getting older and we always, you know, like to try and push things forward. It’s Girls Aloud, but older.”
And according to bandmate Nicola they will be getting involved in all aspects of the production.
She said: “We’re really excited to get back in (the studio) writing and singing and everything. It’s really good.”
The band have even joked that they should maybe change their name to Women Aloud to coincide with the change.
