Girls Aloud's new single 'Something New': First listen

By
After surfacing online two days ahead of schedule, Girls Aloud have smartly decided to properly unveil their comeback single 'Something New' today (October 16).

Listen to the track below:



Like most Girls Aloud singles, a few listens are required to get our heads around it, but we've posted our initial thoughts on the song below:

Something we like:
It sounds modern enough for today's charts without compromising their signature sound.

Something we don't like:
The distorted vocal bits.

Something we like:
The unusual structure, typical of a good Girls Aloud song.

Something we don't like:
It's taking us a while to get used to all the shouty sing-speaking in the verses.

Something we like:
Despite all the sing-speaking in the verses, it still has a proper, massive chorus.

Something we like:
The ending is our favourite part: "Boy you better watch your back, we're the leaders of the pack."

Something we don't like:
It doesn't feel like it gets going until the one minute mark.

Something we like:
The Nadine-heavy vocal on the chorus.

Something we don't like:
The line: "We girls gonna run this run this."

Something we like:
Sarah's line: "Take a walk on the wild side of life."

Something we like:
Girls Aloud have released a new single.

Something we don't like:
There probably won't be a full album of new tracks to accompany it.
