Cheryl has said her love life is "not even more" in her first interview since splitting with Liam Payne.

The former Girls Aloud singer is a set of releases for new music on Friday and spoke to fellow musicians Jessie Ware for her podcast Table Manners.

Cheryl said: "In business I know what I want, but in my romantic area I'm not evolved – that area has stopped."

She also spoke about Bear, her 20-month-old son with Payne.

The former known as the artist Cheryl Fernandez-Versini, Cole and Tweedy said: "I've got the man in my life now. I'm good."

The 35-year-old also spoke about releasing her first song in four years, Love Made Me Do It, which was written by the former Girls Aloud bandmate Nicola Roberts.

"She's written for me in the past," she said. "When she starts songwriting, she would send her things done and I'd say, 'That's awesome, I'll have that.' And not long after I had Bear, I was like, 'I love this, I love that, so let's just do it.'

"We have the best time and it was so organic and real. She knows me inside out and she can speak for me and melodies are just first-take wonders."

The singer also addressed the song, and the album, were about her relationship with Payne.

"All the music and songs were done before we split," she said.

"None of them are about anybody. That's the main thing you could write about, it's such an easy headline.

"When I'm in a room, I'm not there with other writers thinking about somebody.

"We may talk about one subject and it comes out that way, but I wasn't writing a love poem to anybody."

The singer said he had taken a recent decision to change her life, saying she was "jaded and living in a negative space" after spending much of her life in the spotlight.

And also added: "I had to slow down for my sanity – I just had enough of the cycle."

Speaking of new life in Surrey, Cheryl also said the quiet life created problems.

"The problem with being private and not commenting on stuff is that you give them [the press] the pen to write whatever they want.

"The most frustrating thing for even though family members can still be like," I have no idea because I don't read that stuff, but it's not true. '"
