The new single Something New will be released on 18th November through Polydor Records.

The girls will perform the song for the first time on Children In Need on 16th November.
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 26th November. 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. The vote will go live at 12.30pm on Friday 19th at girlsaloud.com/ten and will be live until Sunday Oct 21st at midnight.

charm bracelet, reflecting their personalities and story. The unique bracelets are featured in the video for Something New.
