been reported that Nicola was in fact given a publishing deal to write songs that could be used by other acts.
She reportedly said that she doesn't know yet who she was writing her songs for, but they were not for Girls Aloud:
«When I'm not busy with Dainty Doll [Nicola's make-up brand], I'm pretty much just songwriting at the studio. (...) I've always songwritten anyway throughout the band and I have a publishing deal. It's something that I love to do and I'm really passionate about.»
She added: «It's nice that we have the time to do it. I don't know [who I'd like to write for]. [I've written] for Girls Aloud and I was lucky that Brian and Miranda from Xenomania chose some of my songs for the Girls Aloud stuff, so that was really nice.»
Some of the Girls Aloud songs she co-wrote include "It's Magic", "I Say A Prayer For You" and "I Don't Really Hate You".
So far, the only Girls Aloud member that has released Xenomania-produced solo tracks was Sarah Harding, for the St Trinian's 2 soundtrack. Cheryl Tweedy and Nadine Coyle were also in the Xenomania studios to work on solo material, but those songs have yet to see the light of day.
