Popular Girl Aloud / ‘Strictly’ / ‘Shrek! The Musical’ starlet Kimberley Walsh has signed a solo studio contract with Universal’s Decca Records. The label will release her modestly-titled first LP ‘Centre Stage’, a covers collection comprising various musical theatre standards, on 4 Feb.

Says Walsh: “I’ve always loved musical theatre and doing ‘Shrek! The Musical’ definitely re-ignited that passion in me. I really wanted to share the love I have for musical theatre by taking some classic songs and completely reinventing them”.

She adds: “The melodies in so many musical songs are so brilliant I knew we could create something special by experimenting with the production and I really feel like we’ve come up with some interesting takes on classic songs”.
