The garage artist is said to have already sent the former Girls Aloud singer a new track

Cheryl Cole could be set to collaborate on a new track with Craig David.

The former Girls Aloud singer recently confirmed that she won’t be returning as a judge on the next series of X Factor so she can concentrate on working on her fifth solo album.

David told Digital Spy that he had already sent her a new track that he had been working on.

“I went into the studio with White N3rd – who produced [my latest single] ‘One More Time’ – and we actually wrote two songs,” he said. “But one in particular I think leant more for Cheryl.”

He continued: “It’s just a very simple pop melody over a garage tune that has the right drops in the right places without being too light.”

David said he wasn’t sure if she would what her plans for the track were, but he had “sent it over to her, so I guess when she knows what kind of direction she wants to go in for the record, she may decide to cut it. If not, then it was a really good song that we wrote anyway.”

He also said he “would love to see Cheryl on a garage record, just because people won’t expect it. Also, if it’s done correctly – and I know how the track was sounding as a demo – it would bang in a club. People would be like, ‘Oh man – that’s cool for Cheryl’.”
