The X Factor judge looked hard at work writing music as she teased fans that she was making "magic" with a team of producers.
The 35-year-old was pictured with famed producer Tricky Stuart, who is responsible for hit records such as Rihanna's 'Umbrella', Justin Bieber's 'Baby' and Beyoncé's 'Single Ladies'.
Nicole, who will be working on the follow-up to her 2011 album Killer Love, said: "Studio making #magic w/@trickystewart mr_joshstewart @jacksonxjoshua."
Nicole's music took a back seat while she was judging on the ITV talent show, but it now looks like she's ready to return to the charts.
Tricky also posted a photo to Instagram earlier today (16 January), showing the pair posing in baseball caps. He said: "Let's get this money @thenicolescherzinger."
Nicole's last single 'Boomerang', peaked at number six in the UK music charts following its release in March.
Also this week, Nicole was pictured dining out in Los Angeles with former flame Lewis Hamilton, sparking speculation that recent reconciliation rumours surrounding the pair could be true.
