Here’s an Interview with @TheSaturdays from DigitalSpy
Having notched up a mightily impressive eight top ten hits over the past three years and two sell-out tours, The Saturdays have emerged as the only serious contender to topple Girls Aloud as the UK’s champion girlband. Little over nine months after theirHeadlines! mini-album, Frankie, Mollie, Una, Vanessa and Rochelle are now pushing forward with the release of their new single, ‘Notorious’, as well as gearing up for their third (fourth?) studio album. Excited, we sat down with the girls to find out what else they’re cooking up in the studio for us.
What is you’re new single ‘Notorious’ all about?
Mollie: “It’s the first single off our fourth album and it’s really exciting for us. It’s obviously still pop, but it’s got more of a dance beat behind it. It’s about when you step on to the dancefloor and transform into a completely different person – when you turn into a bad girl!”
Una: “Dance is massive at the moment so it’s a dance track, but it also has something unique behind it. It’s got this drop-out chorus where it’s just the beat and you can only hear our voices – there aren’t many tracks like that, so it’s a bit different.”
Have you been pleased with the response to it?
Rochelle: “It’s been really good. We haven’t had one bad comment! It only got added to the music channels today and I think it’s already number two on this week’s top ten.”
Mollie: “It’s quite nerve-wracking though because we’ve obviously heard it for weeks now and we love it, so when you play it to the fans they’re going to tell you honestly and thankfully it has had a good response. As long as we’re keeping them happy!”
What can we expect from your new album?
Mollie: “We’ve grown up a little bit now and we’re starting to write a lot more. We’ve been doing this for a good few years so we have a lot to say! We haven’t finished the album yet so we’re still experimenting.”
Una: “We want to put out the best album we possibly can out we want it to be better than any of our other albums, so we’re going to record loads of songs and pick from them. We’re really part of the creative process this time.”
Is ‘Notorious’ indicative of the album’s sound?
Rochelle: “Not really. We love that song, but there are others we like that are a different style and so there will be some ballads on there. In terms of it being a step up, then yeah, definitely. It’s not all the same kind of feel.”
How much of the record are you writing this time?
Una: “We’ve been in the studio writing loads, but we’re also going to go somewhere quite remote for a week and just work on loads of songs together. We’ve probably written about five or six that we love and would like to see go on the album, but we know we can do even better if we just sit down and get the time.”
