Cole wants to do a solo tour in the new year

Cheryl Cole has spoken of her intention of doing a solo tour in the new year.

The 27-year-old singer's new single, "Promise This" is released today, with her second studio album, "Messy Little Raindrops" following on November 1st.

Cheryl supported band Black Eyed Peas last year, when she took her first solo album, "3 Words" on the road.

Cole has also said that, unlike her Girls Aloud band mates, she won't be taking to Twitter as she doesn't want to have her life monitored any more than it already is.
