Former pop pin-up Paula Abdul has decided to make a musical comeback with a new album of dance tracks.

The STRAIGHT UP singer enjoyed international chart success in the late 1980s and early 1990s before returning to the spotlight in 2002 as a judge on hit TV show American Idol.

And now she wants to sing again - and she's enlisting the help of fellow Idol judge Randy Jackson, who will produce the project. He says, "We're working on some new music as we speak. It's gonna be hot. A little different, still kinda like a funky dance record. "We were sitting there one day and... we decided to try and do something. I think it's gonna be hot."
