Preview of Cheryl Cole’s brand new single “Promise This”!
Thought I couldn’t blog about Nadine and not Cheryl so here it is!
According to a tweet from songwriter Chris Jackson, Cheryl Cole‘s camp has selected “Promise This” as the lead single from her as-of-yet untitled sophomore album, which is currently expected out sometime either later this year or early next.
Jackson also confirmed that the track was produced by Wayne Wilkins and penned by both himself and fellow writer, Priscilla Renea.
Wilkins, who is a part of the songwriting team The Runaways, produced Cole’s “Fight For This Love,” as well as some other incredible songs including Keri Hilson‘s “Energy” and Michelle Williams‘ “We Break The Dawn.” In other words: Yes this is going to be another #1 smash for Ms. Cheryl Tweedy. “Promise This” has already had some glowing praise amongst supporters! Its only 40 seconds long but you get the feeling Cheryl is certainly stepping up her game for her second album & with direct competition from fellow Girls Aloud member Nadine Coyle , she’s gonna need a big hit on her hands right?
OK so what about the track itself? – Cheryl begins with a fast-paced take on the classic French children’s song, “Alouette.” I myself had never heard of this french children’s song so I took to Wikipedia to help me out a tad! Wikipedia tells me the song is about “plucking the feathers off a skylark.” Pretty bizarre feature though that’s for sure! Some might say inspired , some would say what the hell? Hmm we’ll reserve opinion for now. The beat can so far be described as a sort of ‘Spacey Pop/Electro/R&B sound .’ The synths do the job brilliantly on this fast paced song.My favourite part of the preview is the piano filled chous with Cheryl singing over it, sounds gorgeous! Pretty deep lyric and theme wise too. “Promise this, if I die before I wake…” I wonder what comes next?
I Can’t Wait!!!
Meanwhile, the 27-year-old popstar’s new music video is set to be directed by Sophie Muller, who has worked with Beyonce, Coldplay, Gwen Stefani and Kings Of Leon to name a few.
Cheryl was seen hitting the dance studio in Los Angeles yesterday where she’s been rehearsing her moves and is set to film the clip later this week, The Sun reported. Despite her new single’s title being revealed, the name of her new album is still unknown!
