Girls Aloud release previously-unheard music with the late Sarah Harding's vocals

Fans have been waiting 20 years for the material
Girls Aloud Wicked Game

Girls Aloud fans can now hear three previously-unreleased songs from the band, as they reissue their 2004 album What Will The Neighbours Say? across brand-new formats.

Celebrating its 20th anniversary year, the group's second studio album - and first recorded solely with pop production house Xenomania - now includes three tracks held in the Girls Aloud vault until today; Disco Bunny, Baby When You Go and their cover of Chris Isaak's 1991 Top 5 single Wicked Game.

This also marks the first time fans will have heard vocals from the late Sarah Harding on Girls Aloud material since the band's 2012 reunion; when they released greatest hits compilation Ten.

The reissue also comes with additional rarities, including the original 'Electronic Mix' incarnation of the girls' 2004 Number 1 hit I'll Stand By You, plus a cover of Chaka Khan's I'm Every Woman recorded for ITV special Discomania.

Sarah, Nadine Coyle, Cheryl Tweedy, Nicola Roberts and Kimberley Walsh's take on Chris Isaak's Wicked Game was originally scheduled to be released as a single in May 2005; announced on the band's official website before being pulled in favour of Long Hot Summer.

The version released on today's What Will The Neighbours Say? reissue features updated production from Xenomania's Brian Higgins, as confirmed by Nicola recently.
