Update: Official Press Release. via PressParty

Fresh from the announcement that she is to star in this year’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, Mollie King storms back on to the UK music scene with her new single ‘Hair Down’.

Mollie has reunited with pop maestro Brian Higgins – Xenomania to produce an in your face pop banger that fans have longed to hear from Mollie since her announcement she was releasing solo music.

‘Gotta let my hair down, I just wanna dance now’ proclaims Mollie on a immense track that gets firmly stuck in your head from it’s very first listen.

The song will be released on Friday 1st September via Island Records, accompanied by a breathtaking video, shot in South Africa by Kyle Lewis

Mollie says: “I’ve spent the last few months working hard in the studio developing my sound and experimenting with my solo music. I’m a huge fan of pop music myself and was thrilled about working with Brian Higgins again on this record. Brian wrote and produced ‘All Fired Up’ which was one of my favourite Saturdays songs; he totally gets pop and I think we’ve collaboratively come up with some amazing records that the fans are going to love hopefully as much as I do!”

Mollie has spent the last two years writing and recording her debut solo material with some of the globes hottest producers.  Next month sees her hit the dance floor as one of the stars competing in ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ 2017. Mollie  is best known as one-fifth of leading girl group, The Saturdays. Since forming in 2007, the multi-platinum selling band have sold over 5 million records and concert tickets worldwide, scored 13 Top 10 singles and 5 Top 10 albums. The band also embarked on four nationwide headline tours and starred in three primetime TV series, including ‘Chasing The Saturdays’ for E! which aired in over 40 territories.

Beyond the group, Mollie has established herself as a mainstay of the fashion press, alongside being a permanent fixture on London’s style scene.


Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all our wonderful visitors! We hope you had a great Christmas/New Year period and are ready for the exciting times that 2015 might throw at us!

I usually do an end-of-year sort of review for The Sats, and I still have it (unpublished right now), I might post it, I might not, as some people might see it as being negative, some might see it as being realistic, others might just read it and ignore. I’ll see how I feel in a few days.

But saying that I can’t do a 2015 post without what I expect about 2015. Like a lot of people we are all a bit taken back by the news that the traditional mailer and flip have been cancelled. I sit right on the fence about that, it’s been increasingly obvious that they’ve been struggling for content for these for a long time, so on that side I can see why they’ve been stopped, but obviously this is something that the group has always done since the start so I can appreciate the other side of the argument too.

As for 2015, for the first time in all my years running this site I’m at an impasse. The girls are heavily involved in their own projects right now. As we know Rochelle has seemingly moved all her solo ventures like TV presenting and her Very range to management away from the groups management. The other 4 are seemingly keeping their own interests alongside Fascination for now. Mollie has another Oasis range due out – I presume for Spring/Summer. Una obviously is on The Voice of Ireland, and expecting baby number two. Frankie has the strictly tour coming up, and has recently spoken to the press about how herself and Wayne would like another little buba at some point. Vanessa seems to be loving the holiday life!

Musically – who really knows. We know they keep making the right noises about new music coming soon, and recording and everything but as we know Christmas as come and gone, and we’ve not had any release. Like you all I wouldn’t mind some new music, but I honestly feel we might have a bit of a wait for it.

It’s our SEVENTH birthday in April too! Honestly can’t believe I’ve been doing this for so long!

As always you can contact us at @TheSatsCoUk on twitter, or via our facebook page to air us your own personal views.
