In the wake of Nicole Scherzinger's big (if not terribly surprising) win on [article id="1640053"]"Dancing With the Stars,"[/article] fans of the Pussycat Doll are wondering what she'll be up to next. First, we imagine, she might want to get some sleep after the whirlwind press tour, then it looks like she'll be getting back to work with her girls.
The [article id="1639850"]new lineup for the Pussycat Dolls[/article] was announced just last week, and the next big step for the group seems to be a new album. Scherzinger said that she's been thinking long and hard about what that album will sound like.
"Right now I've been in the studio working on music nonstop. We're gonna have another Pussycat Dolls album for all of our fans out there, but that's gonna be late this year," she [article id="1633152"]revealed about the group's next project[/article]. But she also hinted that her long-brewing solo record is not dead just yet.
"I don't know if I'm gonna put [the new music out] under my name yet or if it's going to be perfect for the Dolls," she said. "It doesn't matter. I just want to make great music for the fans. It's going to be popular music, but I'm definitely going with [a] more rock, soul-inspired sound."
She recently revealed that she would be hitting the studio with Ne-Yo and RedOne for some new music, saying that she and RedOne have "a lot of ideas that we're raging to get out of us."
Whether or not there will be a formal Scherzinger solo album, just this week the singer premiered her new track, "Nobody Can Change Me." She was recently featured on Slash's new album, singing a duet with Alice Cooper, "Baby Can't Drive." And she's about to get her musical theater on, singing the title song from [article id="1623476"]Andrew Lloyd Webber's new show[/article], the "Phantom of the Opera" sequel "Love Never Dies."
Scherzinger raved about the experience, saying, "I had an amazing experience working with him in London on that song. I believe it's going to be a part of the soundtrack. I'm a big musical theater fan. That was really huge ... life-changing."
