Sarah Harding has not had the best few months but recent reports suggests she's finally seeking to try and turn them into a positive by drawing on her past experiences in her forthcoming solo album, which will see release sometime in the summer.
The former Girls Aloud member split up with Tom Craine last year, an experience which led to spells in rehab and also a brief, tumultuous fling with Dutchman Theo De Vries which ended in violent acrimony at the end of the year following a fight in an Austrian hotel room. A source told the UK's Daily Mirror however that the 30 year-old was back on track and focusing on what she loves most - music. "Sarah's been jotting down lyrics and writing songs for the past few months. After the year from hell in 2011, she is now desperate just to get back to her first love - music. She's had a few meetings and is getting a lot of interest from labels but hasn't decided which one to go with yet."
Continuing, the informative source said "As well as writing about the breakdown of her relationship with Tom, she has detailed her time in therapy, and been pretty explicit about her battles with booze. There is some very raw, heartfelt stuff - not the kind of thing people will be expecting. Sarah's had some pretty wild experiences and wants the album to reflect this."
