Nicola Roberts seems keen to be working again with Xenomania once Girls Aloud decide to get back together. She told Digital Spy that the girls have a solid history with Xenomania, personally and musically, and it would be a "crime" for them not to reunite with the production/songwriting team:
Digital Spy: So when are Girls Aloud releasing a new album?
Nicola Roberts: We know next year is our tenth anniversary, and personally, I would love for that to happen.
DS: You've previously said you'd like to write songs for the next Girls Aloud album. Would you work with Xenomania again too?
NR: It will probably be a bit of both to be honest. We have a history with Xenomania both personally and musically and it's very solid, so it would be a crime for us not to go back. I'm looking forward to us all setting up camp and working as a team again like all the other records. Now we're a bit older though, there's definitely room for some creativity.
DS: Do you think they've got a load of songs ready and waiting for you?
NR: They're definitely not pressuring us to get back together, but they've probably got a load of stuff ready for us! I wouldn't be surprised at all

Xenomania are one of the producers that will appear on the new Saturdays album. Their new single, "All Fired Up", was produced by Xenomania and Space Cowboy, who is best known for his work with Lady Gaga.
"All Fired Up" will be the second single taken from The Saturdays' upcoming new album, after the recently released "Notorious" (produced by Steve Mac).
If the Daily Mirror is to be believed, Girls Aloud - all five of them - are apparently set to get back together in January 2012 to record a new album.
However, according to "a source", they will no longer work with Xenomania and instead plan to draw on personal experience for their next album.
The "source" says: "In six months time it'll be back to work as normal – they are itching to get back in the studio. At the moment the Girls are really excited about their new beginning, although they are scratching their heads over who will create signature hits for them."
"They are all grown women now. (...) They have all got so much more experience between them now. They have all been through so much and come out fighting – and they will reflect this in their tracks."
Xenomania is a songwriting and production house based in Kent, England. It was founded by songwriter and producer Brian Higgins.
Since 1996, Xenomania have written, produced and remixed tracks for a string of successful artists including Girls Aloud, Pet Shop Boys, Sugababes, Dannii and Kylie Minogue, Saint Etienne, Cher, Gabriella Cilmi and many others.
