Cheryl, previously known as Cheryl Cole, is back. And she means business.
Cheryl’s decided to drop the Cole but won’t be going back to her maiden name of Cheryl Tweedy yet. She’s keeping it simple and going by her first name from now on – bit like Cher and Adele, and we all know it never did them any harm.
Her first single Call My Name will be released on June 10 and was written and produced by catchy tune megalord, Calvin Harris.
You’ll be able to hear the single on the radio from this Friday.
Call My Name is taken from Cheryl’s third album A Million Lights which will be released June 18 through Polydor Records. Cheryl recorded the album in London, New York and LA with a bunch of pretty cool collaborators, including Alex Da Kid, will.i.am, Lana Del Rey, Jim Beanz and newcomers Pantha and HyGrade.
Goodness, we’re so excited we might just burst!
Cheryl shared the news with her fans on Twitter earlier, saying: “Soooo EXCITED for you to hear #CallMyName on the radio this Friday *bbm dancing man*”
So why only now has Cheryl decided to drop the surname?
“Cheryl is beginning a new chapter in her life so she doesn't want to be associated with negative stuff from the past,” an inside source told The Sun.
“She's not removing Cole legally, it's just a career statement. She can't wait to start performing live again and her new stage name has given her comeback an extra bit of spice.”
Keep an ear out for Call My Name on the radio this Friday!
