Cheryl’s fans have been eagerly awaiting her brand new album for AGES.
And it’s now been reported the hugely-anticipated album will be released via a different label to her past records.
According to The Sun, the mother-of-one has parted ways with Polydor, who were behind her previous four solo albums.
Polydor are part of the Universal Music Group, who Cheryl remains signed to, and it’s said she will now seek another of their labels to release her fifth album as “it seems the right time for a change.”
The Sun’s source told them: “There wasn’t anyone left at Polydor who worked with her in the past so it seemed the right time for a change.
“She is still contracted to Universal so now it’s a case of figuring out which label is the correct fit for the direction she is going in.”
Does that mean Chez may be trying a different sound?
Cheryl’s last album, Only Human, was released back in 2014.
Since then, she’s been focused on being a mum to son Bear, nearly one, with Liam Payne, and opening her centre for young people in the North East with the help of the Prince’s Trust.
Since returning to the recording studio, Cheryl, 34, has been working with producer Naughty Boy, who said her new tracks will be “very personal”.
Yesterday, Naughty Boy was reported as saying he thought Cheryl should “let her music do the talking” when it comes to putting recent rumours of a split with Liam to bed.
It’a also been revealed Cheryl has reunited with Miranda Cooper, the writer behind many of Girls Aloud’s hits including Sound of the Underground, Love Machine and The Promise.
Cheryl’s album is due to be released in the autumn which will coincide with the X Factor live shows returning to TV screens – where Cheryl’s also rumoured to be returning as a judge.
