Nadine Coyle will release her debut album exclusively with mass merchant Tesco in the U.K. and Ireland.
Tesco has previously released physical exclusives from veteran acts Simply Red and Faithless, but this is the first debut release from a new artist, albeit one who has an existing fanbase as a member of U.K.-based pop act Girls Aloud.
Coyle considered "numerous offers from several major record companies," according to a statement.
However, the pop singer decided to sign an exclusive distribution deal with Tesco for the physical release of "Insatiable." The album is out Nov. 8 on her own label, Black Pen, preceded by the title track as a single a week earlier.
It will be available exclusively in more than 1,200 Tesco stores and online. Digital release details have yet to be confirmed. Alongside its physical exclusive with Tesco, Faithless released its album digitally via iTunes.
"To be able to create an album where you are in complete creative control and to work with people as supportive, powerful and forward thinking as Tesco is a once in a lifetime opportunity for an artist," she said in a statement. "Releasing my album through Tesco is such a great way to connect with everybody. I buy all my own music at Tesco".
Coyle worked with writers and producers including William Orbit, Guy Chambers, Toby Gad and Desmond Child. The album was recorded in London, Los Angeles, Stockholm and Malibu.
"We are delighted that Nadine Coyle has agreed to entrust the first album of her solo career to Tesco," said Tesco head of entertainment Rob Salter. "Nadine has delivered a real album with musical integrity and, most of all, that great big warm voice and fantastic songs which we believe will speak to all of Tesco's customers."
Nadine Coyle's manager Bruce Garfield added: "This is a dream deal for an artist who wanted creative and career self determination. The Tesco organization combine an understanding of the vision of the artist along with undiluted attention to detail and enormous marketing power. Tesco is where the consumer and the content meet."
