Walsh goes glam for solo album

Kimberley Walsh has been working on her debut solo album

Kimberley Walsh has chosen a glamorous 40s-inspired look for the cover of her new album.

The singer, who has recently reunited with her Girls Aloud bandmates, has released the artwork for her debut solo album Centre Stage.

On it, she wears a bejewelled dress with a 40s-style hairdo and a lashing of red lipstick.

Busy Kimberley, who has also reached the semi-finals of Strictly Come Dancing, is excited to release her first material away from Girls Aloud. The album will feature her "reinventions" of classic songs like Moulin Rouge's One Day I'll Fly Away.

"I really wanted to share the love I have for musical theatre by taking some classic songs and completely reinventing them," she said.

"I was in my absolute element recording it and really felt like I was discovering new tones to my voice and really pushing myself vocally. I loved every minute of recording this album, I really felt like I was going back to my roots."

Centre Stage will be released on February 4, 2013.
