When is the mutya keisha siobhan album out

Mutya Keisha Siobhan: Six knack for a hit

More than a decade ago, as Sugababes, they also turned the head of one or the other music fan who was otherwise averse to mainstream pop. After the girl band had to do without the three original members today, they got together again to build on their early successes as Mutya Keisha Siobhan. ThePop world is delighted.

Mutya Keisha Siobhan - a basically simple yet, at least for non-Anglo-Saxons, somewhat complicated band name. For us, they simply remain “the one and only” original Sugababes. They have left the internal drama of the past behind them, now Mutya Buena, Keisha Buchanan and Siobhan Donaghy want to know again. Together the three British women recorded a new album as Mutya Keisha Siobhan. The single "Flatline" provides a first foretaste.

Rewind: Colorful, sugar-sweet, but also very cool, the Sugababes did their rounds 13 years ago in the video for their debut single "Overload". The song turned the three British teenagers into poster girls of the "Bravo" generation overnight; the Sugababes replaced the All Saints in the teenage rooms. But cool indie kids also enjoyed the casual pop of the young girl band. The Sugababes, which were formed in 1998, even received words of praise from the strict “NME”. “Overload” made it into the top 10 of the charts in several countries, in Great Britain it was sixth, and in Germany it was even third.

The accompanying Sugababes album “One Touch” also cracked the European charts. Countless other hits followed - from the weird “Freak Like Me” and the mash-up “Round Round” to the shredded teardrop “Too Lost In You” to the hysterical dance popper “Push The Button”.

“One Touch”, released at the end of 2000, was not only the first, but also the last album to date in this constellation. Little by little, the three founding members left the band - Siobhan quit in 2001, Mutya in 2005 and Keisha in 2009 - and were each replaced by other singers. In 2010 none of the three original Sugababes was part of the cast.

Now they love each other again. Quite awesome, actually. The claws are retracted, "catfights" and jealousies from back then are a thing of the past. Without the reunion, their life would not have been complete, they say. Mutya, Keisha and Siobhan have been doing things together again since 2011, and a year ago they officially announced the “We love each other again and absolutely want to make music together” reconciliation round. Over the past few months, Mutya Keisha Siobhan recorded their first album together in 13 years. To do this, they gathered various producers and songwriters around them - they chose the collaborators themselves, neither management nor label interfered, it is said.

Pop at its best

The trio shows a knack for hits. For example, the former Sugababes aka Mutya Keisha Siobhan are rumored to be supported by the tasteful pop producer Richard X on their second debut album. In addition, Cameron McVey, who was already involved in "Overload", is back again. In addition, ex-All-Saints member Shaznay Lewis, Emeli Sandé and the Australian hit writer Sia (including "Titanium" with David Guetta and "Diamonds" by Rihanna) worked on the lyrics with the reunited girl group. Pop fans can look forward to it!

Mutya Keisha Siobhan's collaboration with Devonté "Dev" Hynes alias Blood Orange alias Lightspeed Champion, who recently retired to the studio with Beyoncé's little sister Solange and is responsible for great songs like this one, seems particularly promising. Together with Mutya Keisha Siobhan, the British producer and musician recorded a remix of the song "Entertainment" by the French indie popper Phoenix, the chorus of which is carried by the harmonies of the three ladies. The remix of the trio by US rapper Kendrick Lamar's "Swimming Pool (Drank)" - also produced by Blood Orange - testifies to the enormous potential of this creative mélange.

But how does it sound now, the first new single from Mutya Keisha Siobhan? “Flatline” doesn't pick up where the three girls left off with “Overload” over ten years ago. The song, penned by Hynes, Mutya, Keisha and Siobhan, doesn’t go straight into the ear and doesn’t make you feel like sweeping the dance floor. But: give it a chance! Little by little, this diamond finds its brilliance. "Flatline" is a shimmering, elegant pop number about the end of a relationship, carried by Mutya Keisha Siobhan's still impressive three-part harmony singing. Hear for yourself!

The single will be officially released in September, and one clip has already been shot in Los Angeles - Mutya Keisha Siobhan is sure to have topped the charts. The background noise in the network, the promo and first live performances will fix it. Mutya Keisha Siobhan will have their first gig on August 1st at Scala, London, and two days later they will perform at the “Brighton & Hove Pride”. In addition to the new songs, the charming trio will certainly sing some of their older hits as well.

In any case, one can look forward to the new album by Mutya Keisha Siobhan, which is expected to be released in early 2014 via Universal Music. The three ladies are guaranteed to land a few hits again.
