Cheryl Cole writes songs she will never release.

The 'Call My Name' singer - who divorced husband Ashley Cole two years ago following allegations he had cheated on her - has written just two of the tracks on her upcoming album 'A Million Lights' but insists she frequently pens her own material, though the personal nature of the lyrics means she doesn't want other people to hear them.

She explained: ''Every record I've made, there are songs I've written that I haven't put out because... well, I don't want to. I write for my own pleasure sometimes.''

And the 28-year-old beauty insisted that she still has creative input on all her work, even if she doesn't do the writing herself.

She told the BBC: ''But you have to connect with something you're singing about. I'm not going to sing about a subject I've not got any feeling for.''

The 'Parachute' hitmaker is thrilled with her new album, though she admits it has been a long wait for fans.

Cheryl - who took an 18 month break from music after the split - said: ''It's been a long time coming. But I think it's the best work I've done''.

She added that the recording process was ''the most fun I've ever had''.

'A Million Lights' will be released on June 18.
