The Saturdays have revealed that they will find it “tough” making a third album.
The five-piece insisted that they want to release a new record every year, but are struggling to find the time in their schedule to write music.
“Most bands disappear in the studio for a couple of months and just concentrate on their new album,” the group told the Daily Star.
“We’d love to do that but it’s dead important to still be around. It means album three will be tough because we’d like to take time out this year to focus on it so we can write more of our own tracks.”
The band, who release new single ‘Ego’ today, admitted that they wanted more time to pen their own material on current album Wordshaker.
“We’d planned to do that with Wordshaker but because things were going so well we wanted to get it out quickly,” they said. “We wrote the track called ‘Deeper’ and all of our B-sides, so we’re definitely taking a step in the right direction.”
The second single to be taken from Wordshaker is out now! Remember you can buy it in-store tomorrow. The CD includes the new b-side “Flashback”. You can download it NOW from…

“Ego” has broken into the top 10 at #9. Don’t stop now! The sky (#1) is the limit.
It’s not their aria of expertise… but that won’t stop eight pop acts bidding for opera stardom.
Corrie’s Kym Marsh is already clearing her throat in readiness for ITV1’s new classical reality show, Popstar to Operastar.
Blur’s Alex James, Bernie Nolan, McFly’s Danny Jones, ex-Pop Idol star Darius Danesh, Shakespeare’s Sister’s Marcella Detroit, Jimmy Osmond and Vanessa White from girl band The Saturdays complete the line-up.
The artists will be trained to perform world-famous opera songs – with many singing in a different language for the first time. Welsh singing sensation Katherine Jenkins will mentor the stars, along with famed tenor Rolando Villazon.
And then – in a bizarre twist – they will be judged on their weekly efforts by rock legend Meat Loaf and makeover king and Classic FM DJ Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen.
A source said: “Thanks to Paul Potts, Rhydian and Il Divo, classical music is at the top of the charts.
“But can just anyone turn into a tremendous tenor or stunning soprano?”
Blur bassist James has five No1 albums under his belt, the Nolan sisters have sold more than 25 million records and McFly had seven No1 singles and two No1 albums.
Little Jimmy Osmond sold more than 100 million records with his siblings and is also a platinum-selling solo artist. Darius’s debut single and album went in at No1, Kym’s former band Hear’Say also had a chart-topping album and Marcella topped the hit parade for eight weeks with Shakespeare’s Sister’s hit Stay.
White’s band have enjoyed five top 10 singles since their debut in 2008.
Myleene Klass and Alan Titchmarsh will host the show, which kicks off on ITV1 on January 15.

Mollie King from The Saturdays says the band felt like they were acting in their new music video “Ego”.
Their latest single is out in early January and features the girlband dressed as superheroes.
At the premiere of Avatar in London on Thursday, Mollie explained about her character: ”My power was storm. It’s so much fun dressing up. It was really cool and fun.”
The band each wear fairly revealing outfits, which Mollie says is fine. The only time she has an issue is if they are asked to wear something that does not fit her style.
The 22-year-old said: “I’m not really into playsuits and things like that and sometimes we have to go with the group, so we have to wear stuff like that, but I don’t really enjoy those.”
The Saturdays next single “Ego” is out on January 4.
Here are two videos for the official remixes to the Saturdays new single “Ego”, which is released on 04th January 2010. Their label, has commissioned two awesome mixers, Almighty, and Jason Nevins. Enjoy!
