Girl group are back with comeback single
The track, which the girl group recently revealed was inspired by Nicole Appleton’s marriage breakdown with Liam Gallagher, received its debut play on Radio 2 earlier today and is now airing online. Listen below.
The single officially comes out on Friday (February 26.) ‘Red Flag’, their first album in a decade will follow on April 8.
Speaking about ‘One Strike’ previously, singer Shaznay Lewis recently revealed that Appleton’s split was “on my mind” when she wrote the song.
“The lyrics came from somewhere very real. Nic was going through a lot of things at that time. That was at the forefront of my mind because it was the heaviest thing going on,” she said.
“We spoke for hours and hours on the phone,” Nicole added. “The first few times I heard it in my car I couldn’t stop crying because I could hear so clearly what it was about,” said Appleton.
The band, which released hits such as ‘Pure Shores’ and ‘Never Ever’, split in 2001. They previously reunited in 2006 but their return was poorly received at the time.
“We didn’t force ourselves into this situation and it couldn’t have happened at a better time in all of our lives. I just missed being with the girls. It makes us happy. Listen, if you can work with your favourite people, then why not?” Natalie said of their reunion.
