Mollie ‘set to surprise’ with solo album

Cover-ops-620x800

Mollie has been chatting to Fault Magazine about her upcoming solo album.

In the interview Mollie chats about her new record, saying that ‘its on the cusp’ of being released, and although its still a pop record it is ‘stylistically’ different from that of The Saturdays, which is apparently shown with the first single.

She says that the music video has been shot and that we should have music very soon. Reports suggest that her album might be released at some time in 2017.

The State of Play

Hello! It’s been a while, and you’d expect a ton of news that has happened, but sadly this isn’t the case … in a positive start Una’s debut album is apparently finished *cough Mollie cough*

Guess that’s a start at least! No news on a lead single, or if she’s going to release it everywhere, or just aim at the Irish market to start with. But will probably have more news on that shortly!

Mollie, well, despite rumours last month that she was shooting the music video, we still don’t have anything. The perils of being signed to a major label, they want everything to be perfect. Hopefully we will be getting something soon, otherwise we will be getting that summer song in mid-winter! Which well … that’s very Saturdays at times isn’t it?

Since the release of her debut EP, Vanessa has been more quiet, I must admit I’ve not been keeping up with all which is going on, it’s been nice to have a break after all these years! Rochelle and Frankie just seem pretty content with life right now – an who really blames them?

 


Forever Is Over? Day & Night Ventures Liquidated

Reports today that The Saturdays own performance firm ‘Day & Night Ventures’ has been liquidated earning each member a cool €314,000 before tax.

Reporting in the Irish Sun – suggests that the liquidation is being overseen by Limerick based accountant to the stars, Alan McEvoy of Livewire Business Management (LBM).

Day and Night Ventures Ltd’s declaration of solvency lodged with Companies House in the UK show that it had £67,777 in cash at the bank and £1.23m in other assets.

After the estimated £10,000 in relation to the costs of liquidation and £52,601 in corporation tax are taken into account, the estimated surplus for the firm after paying debts is £1.242m.

With no performance company to plow their money into would suggest that this break for the group really is an extended one. As the report says there’s no reason to why a new company could be setup, but it would suggest that a group reunion isn’t on the cards in the foreseeable future.


Happy Birthday To Us – 8 Today!

The Saturdays in 2008

Update:
Thanks to @TheSaturdays on twitter for your kind message!

How glamorous! Today is our 8th Birthday, 8 years ago these girls where looking lovely in neon ( Mollie typically in Pink!)

Who would have thought in 2008 that we would still actually be here in 2016? Not sure I did, not sure many here would be thinking the same too! But yet, here we are, 8 years later, 8 years older, and still playing Work at full blast. Things haven’t change too much have they? I mean we have several children in the band now, but apart from that its still the same, right?

Probably not, but we can dream. But here we are, (still) standing right here .. but lets not get too emotional just yet. A few words …

Usual thing every year, thanks to everyone who made this site possible, those at the start whom decided we should do this, to those who helped though the busier times, though to little old me who still clings on with hope in 2016!

Huge thanks to YOU, the visitors, whom still keep visiting in the hope I’ll be able to say NEW SINGLE COMING SOON, but alas it’s not happened (yet), so please keep visiting and hopefully one day.

Finally to the girls themselves, the girls management and label, whom if they didn’t initially complain we where too far ahead of the label 8 years ago, we might not be as known as we are today. I cannot express how grateful I am to the girls theirselves and their management who have been so helpful over the years!

Here’s to the next 12 months, even if it will only contain more EPs from Vanessa and Mollie giving us some 90s pop throwback, whilst Rochelle fights Marvin for the hosting job of The Voice as it moves from the BBC to ITV. (I joke, honestly!)

Either way, keep up to date via Twitter on @TheSatsCoUk or if that doesn’t float your boat hit us up on Facebook or just keep coming back here! We’re not going anywhere until I say so!

All the best, and remember keep living for the weekend by not giving up!

Hello!!

the-saturdays-heroes-concert-in-london-sept-2010-02-2200x1593

No, I’m not singing the Adele song, I don’t have the voice to pull that off! Just thought it’s time for a friendly post to say, hello!!

So what is going on? Well we are approaching our 8th birthday in a little over a month, more on that in April. Eight years … and sadly its never been more quiet really.

Musically … Vanessa is recording a second EP, Una is in the recording studio laying down the music to her upcoming album.

Mollie’s first single could be called ‘Reckless Heart’, as being reported on pop justice. Written by Mollie and Steve Anderson (who is known for his work with Kylie, also worked on ‘Breathe On Me’ by Britney Spears), hopefully we will hear more on this in the coming weeks!

Frankie is seemingly happy with two children for now in a recent magazine interview and Rochelle has seemingly lend some vocals to her husbands Luv Bug venture but we presume she is still working on various TV roles.

Hopefully we’d have more music from the three going solo sooner rather than later, be a nice birthday present if so!

Keep playing The Saturdays, we’re not giving up yet!


Vanessa White – Chapter One EP – Out Now!!

12194586_959640584120377_3928368978912724115_o

Today is another day to add to our calendars, it marks the first official release (after The Saturdays) that a member has a full EP available to buy.

Vanessa’s Chapter One EP is now available to buy on iTunes (and other digital stores) for £2.49!

This is hot off the back of news of her debut show which takes place at the London club Cargo on Wednesday 16th March. Obviously as this is a club its 18+ only, tickets are available from TicketWeb from £7.95 + Fees

 

At time of posting (8.50am) on Friday – so around 9 hours after release – Vanessa’s EP was number 75 on iTunes UK. We will keep an eye on this thought the week.

Update: I should have made it clear that as this is an EP, priced under £3.50 and only has 4 tracks it won’t officially enter any UK chart this coming week. The only way it can chart is if individual songs sell enough to chart on the singles chart.

 


Frankie: ‘Music isn’t my priority anymore.’

Frankie_Bridge_2649692aFrankie’s long awaited interview with Fabulous magazine is out today in The Sun newspaper, or you can read the entire thing online here.

The article is interesting, discussing the issues with her pregnancy and no she’s not had a boob job for those wondering.

There are also key questions asked about the group, and sadly for those of us expecting a reunion anytime soon should start packing our bags and move onto either Una/Mollie/Vanessa’s solo careers’ as Frankie says she has no plans for music for a while.

Frankie plans to spend this year figuring out what she wants to do next. She recently made a film on internet trolling for Victoria Derbyshire on BBC2, which has given her a taste for “doing something that has a real meaning.”

What’s definitely not on the cards any time soon is a Saturdays reunion. While all the girls remain great friends, each is happy doing her own thing, and Frankie says there are no plans to get back together.

“We haven’t split up, but we are having a break,” she says. “I will always miss performing, but I’ve been doing it since I was 12. It’s quite nice to get invited to something and be able to say: ‘Yeah, I’ll come!’ I’m so used to never knowing until the last minute because when you’re in a band, your schedule is not your own.

“So it’s really nice to have this freedom, but I do sometimes feel a bit lost. Like: ‘Oh, I’ve got nothing to do today. Let’s go to the farm again!’

“As a band, we’ve always been really understanding of each other, and I just think whatever happens will happen naturally.”

What’s quite telling, though, is the fact that Frankie clearly sees her future away from music. She speaks at length about how a career in the industry simply isn’t compatible with family life, which surely means it’s curtains for The Saturdays.

“You have to dedicate so much time to music, and that’s just not my priority now I’ve got children. I want to work – it’s part of who I am – but I also want to be able to pick my kids up from school and watch them on sports day. I always wanted to be successful, but I never wanted to be a successful person without a family.

“If you’d have asked me five or six years ago, I’d be like: ‘Yes, I want to try a solo career.’ But now I’ve been at it for so long and I feel like I’ve achieved what I want to.”
