Girls Aloud Unveil New Single 'Something New' After Internet Leaks (WATCH)

Girls Aloud have been forced to bring forward the release of their single 'Something New' following online leaks earlier today.

The track was due to be made public on 19 October with their own website showing a countdown but, after the song made its way over the internet earlier than planned, the band had to follow suit - LISTEN TO THE GIRLS IN ACTION ABOVE.

'Something New' is the comeback track for the quintet who originally found fame on Popstars: The Rivals, working again with their hit-makers Xenomania, but fans' delight may be short-lived.

Cheryl Cole has hinted in her forthcoming autobiography that this may be the last we'll be hearing from the band, saying, "We'll be working on a tour and greatest hits album. Then I think that's it for Girls Aloud.

"We've achieved more than any of us ever dared to dream of."
