Steps have announced their brand new single ‘Take Me For A Ride’ will be released Thursday 29 July. It will have its first play on Zoe Ball’s Radio 2 show which will then be released on all digital and streaming partners immediately after.
‘Take Me For A Ride’ is possibly the darkest song has released in their entire career. Speaking about the single the band said: “It’s much darker than what we have done in the past and the lyrics tell a real story about someone being gaslighted in a relationship, a topic that’s finally getting the attention it deserves. It’s one of several songs on the new What The Future Holds Pt 2 album that takes our Steps sound in exciting new directions. We can’t wait to hear what everyone thinks about the track and the album as a whole. We hope you love it as much as we do.”
For the single the band reunited with Karl Twigg and Mark Topham who wrote some of their biggest hits including One For Sorrow, Deeper Shade Of Blue and Stomp.
‘Take Me For A Ride’ is the second single to be released from What The Future Holds Pt. 2 but the first brand-new track. Earlier this year they revealed an exciting, revamped single mix of Heartbreak In This City featuring the brilliant Primetime Emmy Award winner Michelle Visage. The updated version topped the UK iTunes chart and has become one of their most-streamed new songs and led to the band’s first-ever performance on The Graham Norton Show.
What The Future Holds Pt. 2 will be released on September 10th 2021 and it will be available to buy in CD (both standard and deluxe versions), vinyl, cassette and on digital formats. Spanning 15 tracks, the album includes 10 brand-new unheard songs and special stripped-back acoustic versions of previous singles.
