Mutya, Keisha and Siobhan signed a £1million deal with Polydor Records in April 2012, and are currently working on their first album as a three-piece since One Touch in 2000.Producers MNEK, Asterix, Craze & Hoax have been working on the new album, and Emeli Sande has confirmed she is working with the band.
‘What we’ve done so far sounds great,’ Emeli said. ‘They’re going to make people stand up and notice.’
The girls talked to the nice people of popjustice.com, about the moment they all sang together again for the first time:
Siobhan: The first time we sang in a room together and worked out our harmonies and sang them together was recording a song called ‘Too In Love’.
Keisha: It was the first time we’d sang together since we were 16 years old. To be honest with you it wasn’t an instant thing. When we were younger we gelled straight away, but we had to learn to blend with each other again.
Mutya: It’s been a while!
Keisha: Yes. It was when we came to do another song, ‘Love Me Hard’ – that’s when I first properly heard us blending.
Siobhan: That’s when we knew that we properly had to get back together. You never know if that magic is still going to be there. If it’s not going to be as magical as the first time around you don’t really want to do it, do you. The minute we sang together, we looked at each other, and we knew. It just worked.
Mutya: It was emotional.
Keisha: It was so special to be excited about hearing our voices together, and being excited about our music. On my days off I’d go home and I’d listen to the tracks. I’d be like, ‘I’m really enjoying this’. I just enjoyed our music.
Mutya: We’ve got some really good songs.
