Emeli Sande confirms she has written a song for the original Sugababes line-up

Reunion appears to be back on after singer lets slip she's working with the trio

Emeli Sande has confirmed she has written a song for members of the original Sugababes line-up.

The singer admitted she has been busy working in the studio with Mutya Buena, Keisha Buchanan and Siobhán Donaghy.

She told MTV.co.uk:

I’ve written for the original line-up of the Sugababes, which I’m very happy about because I just loved them when they first came out.

Sande added: “I loved their sound, it was so cool. It was very different, so I’m happy to kind of be involved in what started the whole Sugababes journey. It sounds amazing.”

Her comments come after Buena recently denied claims that the original line-up are reuniting by saying she was keen to concentrate on her solo career.

It was recently reported that the trio are working on new material and are set to record with the Xenomania songwriting and production team (Girls Aloud, Kylie Minogue, Pet Shop Boys) as well as their old producer Cameron McVey, who worked on their 2000 album ‘One Touch’ and Siobhán Donaghy’s debut album ‘Revolution In Me’ (2003).

The original Sugababes line-up formed in 1998 and released their debut album ‘One Touch’ in 2000. Donaghy left the band in 2001 and was replaced by Heidi Range. Buena departed in 2005 to be replaced by Amelle Berrabah and Buchanan was last to leave in 2009, with Jade Ewan stepping into her shoes.
