It seems that Cheryl Cole is gong all out to make sure her new album is a success, calling on singer-songwriter Lana Del Rey for a track.

According to The Sun, Cheryl has worked with the breakthrough star on a new song for her third studio album, expected later this year.

Former X Factor judge Cheryl, who rose to fame on Popstars: The Rivals way back in 2002, has also teamed up with Calvin Harris for another single.

"Cheryl is a big fan of Lana and was intrigued to hear she had lots of songs written which she wasn't going to sing herself. She got hold of one and was really taken with it," a source said today. "The record label are pretty happy about it because Lana has a massive following."

The newspaper describes the track, written by 25-year-old New Yorker Lana, as a "urban, mid-tempo ballad"

Other collaborations on the record, the Geordie singer’s follow up to 2010 chart topper Messy Little Raindrops, include Rihanna, Taio Cruz and Usher.

The news follows reports yesterday that Girls Aloud would be reuniting in 2013 for an arena tour, some 11 years after they were formed on Popstars: The Rivals.
