The Saturdays - new single and album
FOREVER IS OVER
5TH OCTOBER 2009
The Saturdays strike back with a brand new single and album for autumn. First up is the power-pop anthem-in-the-making, Forever Is Over, released on October 5th through Fascination Records.
The single, written by James Bourne [ex-Busted] and Sam Watters and Louis Biancanielle, is a change in direction for the girls and its sophisticated sound signals a definite progression, while still showing off the girls’ voices to the maximum.
Forever Is Over is the lead single from The Saturdays’ as-yet-untitled second album which will be released on October 12th. Mollie, Una, Rochelle, Vanessa and Frankie have been recording the album since the start of the year. They recently premiered two new songs – Wordshaker and One Shot – on their recent UK tour sending pop fans into a frenzy on blogs. The album has been recorded in London, Los Angeles and Sweden and producers include hitmakers from their debut album, Ina Wroldsen and Chris Braide as well as new producers including The Jam [Leona/Shontelle] and Per Magnusson [Britney]
The Saturdays have been one of the breakthrough British acts of last year. Since last summer they have had an incredible run of success – from five smash hit singles to a platinum selling album and a sold out tour. They have now set their sights on international success. The girls have just come back from a major promo trip to Asia, their second in the last few months. Their brand of pure pop has gone down a storm in the East and further trips are planned for later this year.
For now, The Saturdays are back in the UK and following their crowd-pulling performance at T In The Park and V they are now looking forward to the European MTV Awards where they are nominated for Best New UK and Ireland act. They are in the same category as La Roux and Tinchy Stryder.
