“Can’t Speak French” is the eighteenth single by the British girl group Girls Aloud, and the third to be taken from their fourth studio album Tangled Up, to be released physically on 17 March 2008.
The single was confirmed on 15 January 2008 on the official site. The first televised performance was a month prior on the Christmas special of The Friday Night Project.
All promotion for “Can’t Speak French” has apparently been put on hold at the moment. The girls were meant to do a national radio tour and appear on This Morning & GMTV this week but has been cancelled so Cheryl Cole can sort through her marital problems with Chelsea and England player Ashley Cole.
The Guardian called the song “a prime example of Xenomania’s ability to throw wildly disparate musical elements together.” The Daily Star said that “Can’t Speak French” was a “swirling, slower cut with great jazzy guitar changes”.
