Cheryl Fernandez-Versini wanted ''to go back to the pop route'' for her new album.

The 31-year-old singer is set to release her fourth LP 'Only Human' in November and she admits she wanted to include a mixture of genres to put a ''fun'' spin on the collection.

Speaking to MTV News UK, she said: ''The album is the most versatile album I've done so far. There's a lot of flavours on there. I wanted to go back to the pop route and do a lot of pop, there's a bit of RnB on there, a bit of 90s dance vibes, I mean it's just fun, you know it's hopeful, it's up-lifting.''

She added: ''I just want people to enjoy themselves for an hour... I'm not saving lives, I'm making pop music you know.''

Meanwhile, the brunette beauty - who recently got married to her beau Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini following a whirlwind romance - wants to drop her surname and be known as ''just Cheryl'' in her professional work because her fans are struggling to pronounce her marital moniker.

She explained: ''It's just Cheryl, keeps everything simple, people seem to be having a hard time so you can just call us Cheryl.''
