[Reporter : ] Hello Han-ul
So what do you have for us on this Monday[Reporter : ] Well, to start the week off, I have news about the new single released by British pop group Girls Aloud. This is the band's first release since 2009, and they seem happy to be back together. Take a look.
After taking a break to work on solo projects in 2009, the five members of British pop group Girls Aloud reunited Friday in London to talk about the release of their latest single, "Something New" and their plans for a UK tour next year.
The band -- which includes Cheryl Cole, Kimberley Walsh, Nadine Coyle, Nicola Roberts and Sarah Harding -- seemed delighted to be back together, with Cole describing the reunion as "emotional."
[Interview : Cheryl Cole, Member of Girls Aloud] "It was emotional to talk about the fact that we're ten years down the line and we're gonna be able, even able to still be together and tour, you know, so that's always gonna be emotional."
The single will be released on November 18th, and is the first off of the band's greatest hits album "Ten."
The album, which will be released November 26th, spans the last decade and includes four new tracks.
Girls Aloud was put together on the British ITV show "Popstars: The Rivals" in 2002 and have since received tremendous attention all around the world, scoring four number one singles and two number one albums in London.
The band will start its 9-city tour on February 21st in Newcastle, hitting the O2 in London for two dates on March 1st and 2nd.
The tour also includes stops in Manchester and Glasgow and ends in Liverpool on March 20th.
