The 'Crazy Stupid Love' singer, 32, gave fans a hint of what she's up to via Instagram in the early hours of Saturday morning (19 March).
Geordie Chezza shared a black and white selfie with her 2.3million followers, where her immaculately made-up face is shadowed by an oversized 'C' cap.
Alongside the photo, Cheryl simply wrote the word "studio" and posted several emojis of musical notes and dancing girls.
Fans were quick to respond with excitement at the prospect of the X Factor judge being back in the recording studio...
One wrote: "Yasssss. So excited!!"
Another said: "Finally. Can't wait to hear!"
Cheryl, who is dating One Direction member Liam Payne, had previously promised her fans she was heading back into the studio sometime in 2016.
She is currently in LA working on new material, while also spending time with Liam who travelled to the Californian city with her.
According to The Mirror, the couple were spotted hand-in-hand as they walked through LAX airport by fans but have kept a low profile since then.
Cheryl is said to have asked Craig David to help with her new music.
Her next album will be her fifth solo effort, the follow up to 2014's Only Human.
