Seems Mollie had a press day on Tuesday, DigitalSpy are touting an interview which is going up today too but lets start with the PopJustice Interview.
You can read the entire thing on PJ but a few picks:
But obviously there is a part of me that’s nervous, because when you come out of a successful girlband—
Or The Saturdays…
SHUT UP! Anyway, when you’re in that situation you know there are eyes watching. I’m not silly, I know people in general are very quick to go “THIS IS A FLOP” and that you have to get the first single right. So I wanted to come out with something I genuinely thought was a great song. So that whatever the outcome, I could still be proud of it. But the responses yesterday seemed to suggest it was going down well.
PJ: When I saw you’d signed a solo deal I did wonder if it would be one of those things where a label chucks thirty grand at an artist and hopes for the best. But looking at the video it feels like Island are taking this quite seriously.
It’s hugely flattering that they wanted to sign me. I had an offer from Sony as well, so I was in a really fortunate position and I felt very lucky, but Island seemed so excited by it, and they didn’t have anything similar to me here. So it felt like I was helping them put a puzzle together.
Was it a writing camp for Mollie, or was it a general thing?
It was part of a general thing — everyone was in there writing different things. Some sessions had writers in writing songs to pitch out, Kesha was there doing her album, I was there doing mine… I was working with people like James Newman, Taylor Parks who’s written loads for Ariana Grande and Fifth Harmony, I was going in and out of studios working with people I’d never had the opportunity to work with in the past.
Mollie’s debut single Back To You is out at midnight tonight, the video is out tomorrow, we will be at TwitterHQ for its play with Mollie herself. If we can ask any questions we shall try!
