The Saturdays - Official Comic Relief Single
The Saturdays to release official Comic Relief single for Red Nose Day 2009
One of the biggest breakthrough acts of last year, The Saturdays are set to become the latest in a fantastic line of pop acts releasing a song for Comic Relief.
Just Can’t Get Enough, a cover of the Depeche Mode classic, will be released on March 2nd, the same week as Comic Relief. Mollie of The Saturdays had this to say about recording the Comic Relief single: “I am so so excited that we have been asked to do the Comic Relief song. It's such a big compliment and it's so nice to be helping such a good cause. I've always dreamt of doing something like this from being a little girl! I remember watching the Spice Girls doing "Who Do You Think You Are" and now it's us! I cannot wait!” Speaking of the song itself, Rochelle said ”it’s a classic 80’s song and a track that everybody knows and can have fun with.”
The Saturdays are joining a long tradition of some of the biggest girl groups that have recorded the official Comic Relief song. Bananarama, the Spice Girls, Sugababes and Girls Aloud have all played their part over the years, and The Saturdays are thrilled to be in such great company.
The release of Just Can’t Get Enough will be a fine way for the girls to start the year after all three of their singles in 2008 (If This Is Love, Up and Issues) debuted in the top 10 and their debut album Chasing Lights recently entered the top 10 following the success of Issues. The album was called a “contender for pop album of the year” by The Times and “a sexy pop debut” by Billboard.
Red Nose Day is on Friday 13th March and the theme this year is Do Something Funny for Money. By raising money for Red Nose Day, people can help to change lives forever. That’s because Comic Relief spends all the money raised to give extremely vulnerable, poor and disadvantaged people in the UK and Africa a helping hand to turn their lives around.
Whether it’s supporting orphans in Africa who’ve lost their parents to Aids, or helping older people in the UK who are abused by someone they should be able to trust – Comic Relief will use the money you raise to help people in desperate need.
