I am so ready for this! Some fun cheery pop music to bop along to :D Looks like they have learnt from the mistakes of Light Uo The World and will really deilver this time.

The single is perfection!
I am so glad they are going at this full force and giving us the kind of material we've waited for.
Makes me even more desperate and nervous to get a tour ticket.

So they did an acoustic session on Radio 2 today (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b08ydy3l#play)

Not bad actually. Claire's obviously excellent. I still think they could blend their voices a bit better by maybe changing the harmonies a little but for a group most of the world thinks can't sing they did a decent job!

An amazing cover and a fantastic opportunity for everyone to shine vocally.
Lisa and Faye have apparently been back in the recording studio so perhaps a re-release/tour edition is being worked on?

Ooh, they should record that :o :lol:

What the hell is H doing in that video? :lol:

Vocally this era belongs to Faye - flawless every time, whereas I think Claire has been a little reserved in live performances. Lee's voice is thin, but it's quite a nice voice.

But Lisa is just totally loving life isn't she? She never ever disappoints (except on the charts) :lol:

Who is doing that god awful bum note on the 'ever' at 2:27? It's in the background but my god it's rough :lol:

Great idea!

I think Lisa sounds great on that actually, her voice is so much less wobbly than it was even 5 years ago.

I’d be down for that, but they’re touring in November so they might be too busy to promote it. But I’d love a re-released album with a few new songs!

They have a series of summer concert planned (and on sale) for 2018.

I really hope we get something new from them next year (this year might be too optimistic aside from s live album). I know they were celebrating 20 years last year, but the success of the new music imo means they should consider a follow up album with a tour that focuses more on TOTDF and it’s follow up.

Love it.

But not for the first time, I’m left thinking Claire is over it all.

Oh and I’m really looking forward to their new live album coming out - they’ve really done a lot of work to make themselves a credibtable live act vocally imo (as creditable as Steps can be!)
