Spector frontman Fred Macpherson has recorded backing vocals on a new track by the original version of Sugababes, who recently regrouped as Mutya Keisha Siobhan.

Macpherson recorded vocals for the trio's new song 'Blue' alongside Solange-collaborator and Blood Orange man Dev Hynes in New York.

Siobhan Donaghy of the group shared a picture of Hynes and Macpherson in the studio earlier today (March 8) via Instagram and Twitter, writing:

Macpherson also wrote on Twitter that the song penned for Mutya Keisha Siobhan by Hynes "BLEW MY FUCKING MIND." He added that the track is: "Hotter than the surface of the sun."

Mutya Keisha Siobhan recently unveiled their first new music since reforming. The reunited trio uploaded an a cappella rendition of a song called 'Boys' to YouTube.

Popjustice reports that a studio version of 'Boys' has already been recorded. The song was written by the trio with former All Saints singer Shaznay Lewis and pop songwriters Richard Stannard and Ash Howes.

Keisha Buchanan, Mutya Buena and Siobhan Donaghy - the founding members of Sugababes - reunited last year. The trio no longer own the rights to the Sugababes name, which is now used by a group consisting of three non-original members.

Their comeback single and album are expected later this year, but no release dates have been announced. The trio have been working on new material with numerous other songwriters and producers, including Brian Higgins, Cameron McVey and MNEK.
