10.16.12 - New Music - Girls Aloud
In the four years since the British girl group Girls Aloud took a hiatus, the girls have kept busy. Three of them have released solo albums (Cheryl Cole and Nicola Roberts most notably. Sadly, Nadine Coyle’s album tanked). The other two girls have been working on film and tv projects. You know, typical pop star stuff.
Girls Aloud had <b>TWENTY</b> top ten hits in a row (and then one that broke the chain, peaking at #11), so I can’t blame them for taking a bit of time off. They released something like five albums in five years (and think of all those singles!), and they were absolutely killing it. When they announced that they were coming back and that there was going to be a new single and album, I wasn’t worried. If anyone could do it, it would be Girls Aloud.
And do it they have. New single “Something New” is everything it needed to be. Dance, but not too electro. Pop, but more for the club. A bit of swagger in there with the unknown other vocal, and you’ve got yourself a hit single. Is this destined for #1 in the UK? I wouldn’t be surprised in the slightest if it went right to the top.

“Something New” is not available in the US, very sadly.
