After months of speculation, the UK’s number one girl band have announced their return and arenas nationwide will welcome Cheryl, Kimberley, Nadine, Nicola and Sarah next year as part of Girls Aloud’s arena tour.
With their latest single Something New set for release on 18th November, and a new album just one week later, the band are officially back and ready to dominate the charts once again.
Something New will be the Official Single for BBC Children In Need 2012 and the girls will perform it live, for the first time, on the televised show (16th November).
The new album Ten will follow on 26th November and will feature a collection of the BRIT award-winning group’s singles over the last ten years, as well as four new songs.
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. The vote will go live at 12.30pm today at girlsaloud.com/ten and will be live until midnight on Sunday.
Luxury Jewellery brand, Pandora, is the official tour sponsor of ‘Ten – The Hits Tour 2013’ and as part of the partnership each girl has designed their own Pandora charm bracelet, reflecting their personalities and story. The unique bracelets are featured in the video for Something New.
Since they debuted with Sound Of The Underground in 2002, Girls Aloud have had 20 top ten singles and four No.1 singles. 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 YouTube views, close to six million Facebook likes and three million Twitter followers.
