Cheryl Cole and pop newcomer Lana Del Rey have teamed up for a track on Cheryl’s highly anticipated third album.

Since declaring she has no interest whatsoever in returning to The X Factor either in the UK or the US, Cheryl Cole has thrown herself into working on her third album, the follow-up to Messy Little Raindrops which was released in 2010.

There has been speculation that the Fight For this Love singer has collaborated with a number of hit artists including Rhianna, Taio Cruz and Usher in a bid to see her third album go straight to the top of the charts when it is released later this year.

The latest collaboration is said to be with newcomer Lana Del Rey, who recently won International Breakthrough Artist at last month’s Brits.

A source revealed: “Cheryl is a big fan of Lana and was intrigued to hear she had lots of songs written which she wasn't going to sing herself. She got hold of one and was really taken with it.”

They continued: “The record label is pretty happy about it because Lana has a massive following.”
