Original Sugababes Reuniting, Recording Album
Thought at first to be a rumor, the three original Sugababes have reunited and are in the process of recording an album, according to The Mirror. Keisha Buchanan, Mutya Buena, and Siobhan Donaghy became the Sugababes in 1998 and released an album – One Touch – in 2000, before Donaghy left and was replaced by Heidi Range.
The three were in an Ealing recording studio last week, working on new, Emeli Sandé-written track “Love Like This.” Naughty Boy is producing. Once enough songs are ready, the group, along with new manager Felix Howard, will look for a record deal. So far, three labels appear interested. For those unfamiliar, Howard co-wrote the Sugababes’ first single, “Overload.”
A source close to the group told The Mirror: “The song is about not being used to being loved because you have been hurt so many times before, and that you think you have been loved before but in reality you haven’t. The girls are very much back to their soulful roots but this time around it’s far more innovative. They’ve recorded more tracks too – and they’re working hard to get a body of new work.
“Siobhán has left her job in the City and they are concentrating on getting material together for an album. They are very dedicated and it’s working well.”
Buena left in 2005 and Buchanan in 2009. Range, however, is part of the most recent lineup. But, will there be two Sugababes on the charts? Range told the press that the current lineup has no plans to record. She said: “The Sugababes have got no plans for anything at the moment. Nothing. It’s a break. There are no plans at all for the future. I’ve loved having some time out from the band.”
