Nicole Scherzinger will release new music next year.

The 37-year-old singer denied reports she has been dropped by her record label RCA but admitted she has signed with another company and hopes to have a new record out next year.

She told the Huffington Post: ''I've got a new deal coming out. It was reported all this year that I was dropped and I actually wasn't dropped.

''I was signing a new deal with another label. We're still working on the contract, which I am unable to speak too much about.

''I'm really excited about this project and new music that I'm putting together, and which will be released next year.''

Meanwhile, it was recently claimed that Nicole and her former Pussycat Dolls bandmates are planning a reunion, five years after they split.

The band ended in 2010 following a feud linked to Nicole's desire to make it big as a solo star, but since her latest release 'On the Rocks' failed to chart, the girls are planning on putting the past behind them and reforming.

A source close to the ladies revealed: ''The band are in talks about reuniting soon and they are trying to see if they can get all of the girls together to do it.

''The fall-outs and bitching from back in the day are all water under the bridge now.''

Nicole is apparently in talks with former members Kimberly Wyatt, Ashley Roberts, Jessica Sutta and Melody Thornton and is keen to make amends.

The source told The Sun newspaper: ''Nicole has seen most of the girls on and off over the years and she's ready to get back together.

''Rather than trying to patch up their differences, it's more about working out how to get everyone in the studio and see what it will actually sound like.''
