Cheryl Cole claims she’s grown as an artist on new album

Cheryl Cole has claimed that she has grown as an artist on her new album, 'A Million Lights.'

The Girls Aloud singer, who last week unveiled the video for comeback single, 'Call My Name,' told the Daily Star that her third solo effort is a creative step up from 2009’s '3 Words' and 2010 follow-up 'Messy Little Raindrops':

“I’ve grown as a person and an artist. You can hear that in my music. I feel brand new. I don’t care if people know I wrote six songs on the first album or not. It can take a lifetime to master your craft and for me that’s getting on stage and entertaining the crowd with a song. I live for that.

“Sometimes for a songwriter that’s their worst nightmare. This album feels like a match made in heaven, being able to work with some amazing talent.”

The 28-year-old, who has collaborated with the likes of Calvin Harris, Lana Del Rey and Wretch 32 on the record, also went onto credit manager for inspiring its sound:

“Will is a crazy genius. He said to me three years ago the next pop stars will be DJs.

“Will’s got amazing foresight and is super smart. He looks at me with an outside perspective and has really encouraged me, especially as a writer.”
