SARAH Harding is releasing a never-before-heard song to help raise money for The Christie NHS Foundation.
The Girls Aloud singer has been receiving treatment at the hospital in Manchester after being diagnosed with advanced breast cancer last year.
Sarah, 39, will release the song, called Wear It Like A Crown, on streaming services at midnight.
The tune was recorded by Sarah ten years ago and was rediscovered by her while she was researching her autobiography, Hear Me Out.
Sarah and her team wanted to make the song available for her fans, with the money going to The Christie.
Following the release of Hear Me Out last week, Girls’ Aloud’s 2004 track of the same name surged back into the charts.
It was a new entry at No28 on The Official Big Top 40 over the weekend.
The news comes after it was revealed all five members of Girls Aloud have had a secret reunion — their first time together in eight years.
Sarah said the band came together again shortly after she went public about her cancer diagnosis last summer.
She was joined by Cheryl, 37, Nadine Coyle, 35, Kimberley Walsh, 39, and Nicola Roberts, 35, at posh members’ club Soho Farmhouse in Oxfordshire for an overnight stay.
And Sarah reveals in her autobiography Hear Me Out, out tomorrow, that she was anxious about seeing them after having treatment for breast cancer.
She writes: “The steroids I’d been taking made me look bloated, and I’d lost my eyelashes due to the chemo.
“It’s not that I thought they wouldn’t understand or be judgmental, of course; it’s just that when we were together as a group, part of our thing was the glamour.
“As a band, we all had our own styles and looks, but there was a sexiness and glamorousness about Girls Aloud that I just wasn’t able to rise to then.”
During their reunion they rewatched their 2006 documentary-style E4 show Girls Aloud: Off The Record. Sarah said: “We were all so different then. There was a sort of sweet naivety about us.
“Watching Off the Record provoked lots of laughing and even more cringing, but I have to say, I looked on fondly. ‘You only miss this when it’s gone,’ I told the girls.”
Cheryl said: “When we all got together at Soho Farmhouse, there were no tears. Actually, that’s not entirely true; there were tears, but they were from laughter rather than sadness.
“It was a lovely trip away for us all, and Sarah was at her best. She’s always been funny and sharp-witted, but somehow, in all this, she’s even funnier. God knows how!”
Girls Aloud scored 21 top ten singles including four number ones after being put together on Popstars: The Rivals in 2002. They split in 2013.
Sarah announced last year that she has advanced breast cancer and said this week that she did not know how many months she had left to live.
