Back in early November we brought you the news that Girls Aloud member Kimberley Walsh has been working on her début album, Centre Stage.
In between wowing millions and dancing her way into BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing final and promoting the latest Girls Aloud greatest hits album, Ten, Kimberley Walsh managed to find time to film a music video for the first single from her début solo album. The video for Kimberley’s take on the classic ‘One Day I’ll Fly Away’ was shot at the legendary Pinewood Studios in just one day.
The single is taken from Centre Stage, an album of songs from musicals which will be released through Decca Records on 4 February 2013.
While probably better known for being one fifth of pop super group Girls Aloud – who are currently celebrating ten years with the release of their greatest hits album as well as a forthcoming arena tour – Kimberley has loved musicals from a very young age. In many ways this album is the ultimate for Kimberley; songs that she has been singing her whole life put together in a way that is totally her own.
Always one to push herself out of her comfort zone, she managed to pack in six or seven hours of dance rehearsals a day whilst taking part in Strictly Come Dancing, simultaneously upholding her Girls Aloud commitments and promoting her new solo album.
‘There’s a lot going on but I am loving every minute and can’t wait for people to hear these songs I’ve recorded’, says Kimberley.
