Following months of speculation, the UK’s greatest girl band announced their return with a new single, a new album and an Arena tour of the UK to begin in Newcastle at the Metro Radio Arena on Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd February 2013.

And now due to phenomenal demand for the UK’s number one girl group a third and final Girls Aloud Newcastle performance has been added as Saturday 23rd February 2013 with all three dates now on sale.

Cheryl, Kimberley, Nadine, Nicola and Sarah held a press conference at the Corinthia Hotel, London to announce their plans.

The new single Something New will be released on 18th November through Polydor Records. It is the Official Single for BBC Children In Need 2012 which will help change the lives of some of the most disadvantaged children in the UK. 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.

Luxury Jewellery brand, Pandora, is the official tour sponsor. As part of the partnership each girl has designed their own Pandora charm bracelet, reflecting their personalities and story. The unique bracelets are featured in the video for Something New.

Since they debuted with Sound Of The Underground in 2002, Girls Aloud have had 20 top ten singles and four #1s. Each of their five albums have gone platinum or above. In total they have sold over eight million records and have clocked up over 45 million You Tube views, close to six million Facebook likes and three million Twitter followers.
