The poptastic quintet Steps are back after two years away with a brand new single, What The Future Holds.
What The Future Holds is the lead single and the title track from the band’s upcoming sixth studio album. The track was written by Sia and is pure Steps, so get your dancing shoes ready.
For their new album Steps have worked with some old friends and new ones. Fiona Bevan (One Direction, Lewis Capaldi), Ina Wroldsen (Shakira, Britney Spears) and Karl Twigg (who worked on their first three albums) plus experiment with songs written by the likes of Greg Kurstin (Adele, Beyonce), Hannah Robinson (Kylie) and new pop shape-shifters such as Gracey and MNEK.
The album What The Future Holds will be released on November 27th via BMG, and will be available on all digital platforms plus CD, Vinyl (including a limited edition transparent pink edition) and Cassette.
A must-have for all Steps memorabilia collectors ( especially for those of us that may or may not still own a certain tin of Steps pasta), the album will also be available as part of a Cassette Collection featuring five separate transparent pink solo cassettes with an intro from each band member, all in a special collector’s box.
The band have also also announced a UK Arena tour for Nov/December 21.
Talking about the new album and tour in a press release Steps said:
We will never forget the past with Steps, it’s what made us, but we’ve got to look to the future too. We were so thrilled that the last album was a success and it gave us a new lease of life. Performing live has always been our favourite part of being in Steps – we had the most fun of our career on the last tour and we’re already planning for the next one to be our biggest spectacle yet. We’re also thrilled to have Sophie Ellis-Bextor as our special guest on the What The Future Holds 2021 Tour – her catalogue is full of floor-fillers and she knows how to get any party started. We are so excited for everyone to hear this new album and to come join us on tour.“
The album What The Future Holds will be released 27 November via BMG. If you preorder it you will get access to presale tickets for the tour on Tuesday 15th September, with general sale beginning on Friday 18th September at 10 AM.
