Forty seconds of Cheryl Cole's first single taken off her currently unnamed sophomore album has surfaced. Promise This begins with some chanting of... a French nursery rhyme about plucking feathers from birds?! Bizarro extreme! Nonetheless, the intergalactic-sounding synths work their magic on the fast-paced track produced by Wayne Wilkins, the man behind one of Cheryl's better songs in her debut 3 Words, Rain On Me. "Promise this, if I die before I wake...", Cheryl warbles on the (presumably) gorgeous piano-tinkled chorus. It's a huge step forward from 3 Words, and I hope the album won't be as disappointing.
I guess that Girls Aloud reunion won't be happening too soon, eh?
