The girl group return soon

The newly-reformed All Saints are to release their first single in five years.

The girl group, who scored five UK Number One singles during their first spell together, hit the comeback trail with ‘Rock Steady’ on November 6. Their new album ‘Studio 1’, the belated follow-up to 2000’s ‘Saints And Sinners’, will follow on November 20.

On the CD single ‘Rock Steady’ is backed by two further new songs, ‘Do Me’ and ‘Dope Noise’.

‘Rock Steady’ is the four-piece’s first single since ‘All Hooked Up’ in January 2001.

Since then the Appleton sisters, Nicole and Natalie, released an album together (‘Everything’s Eventual’ in 2003) while Shaznay Lewis issued a solo album, ‘Open’, in 2004.

Other bandmember Melanie Blatt has been the quietest, releasing a couple of singles on her own, and scoring a Top Ten hit, ‘TwentyFourSeven’, with The Artful Dodger in 2001.

The band are currently preparing to go on an extensive UK tour in 2007.
