A one minute preview of “The Flood,” the expected second single to be lifted from Cheryl Cole‘s Messy Little Raindrops, is now available on Cheryl’s official website/album unlock-er thingy.

Sure it’s a bit of a soggy Tedder-esque plodder, but I’m LOVING that chorus! I just wasn’t expecting those shouty vocals. Good on you, Chezza!

Psssttt… If you’re lucky, you may happen upon the full set of album previews traveling ’round the net. A video containing all of the samples surfaced briefly this morning, but has since been removed.

From what I heard, Messy Little Raindrops is the definition of a mixed bag, dipping into dubstep, R&B, throbbing trance, and soggy ballads at random.

“Yeah Yeah” with Travie McCoy is a pretty solid Confessions On A Dance Floor-lite raver, “Raindrops” is as shit as the album title suggests, “Better To Lie” is literally the same song as Keri Hilson‘s “Knock You Down,” and “Waiting” samples Vanessa Carlton‘s “A Thousand Miles.” Erm.

This might actually be a more interesting (note: not necessarily better) album than the merely aiiight 3 Words, but…full track listens are needed to confirm.
