Cheryl is gearing up to release her fifth solo album this year – but it won’t be with her longtime record label.
It has been reported that the 34-year-old is parting ways with Polydor after releasing her four solo albums with the label. Due to staffing changes at the label, the team Cheryl worked with is no more, so it’s believed she is looking for a change – however, she will be staying under the umbrella of Universal Music Group, which owns Polydor.
A source told The Sun: ‘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.’
In addition to this, Cheryl is believed to be teaming up with songwriter Miranda Cooper – the genius behind Girls Aloud’s hits Love Machine, The Promise, Biology and Call The Shots – to produce some ‘out and out pop bangers’. Girls Aloud 2.0? We’re here for it. The Fight For This Love singer is expected to release her fifth album this autumn – her first record since 2014’s Only Human.
