The girls gave hint that they"ll be back with more music. It added: "Over the next 12 months we are going to be involved in a lot of different things - music, TV, fashion and more. Sometimes it may be a solo project - sometimes just a couple of us and sometimes all five of us together.
"We are definitely NOT splitting up. In fact we have all signed a new contract with Fascination/Polydor Records guaranteeing that we will release at least three Girls Aloud albums – minimum. We will definitely all be going into the studio next year to record - and there will definitely be a new GA album in 2010."
