Steps announce comeback with new album and tour

Written by on 8 September 2020

Five, six, seven, eight – better get in line, as Steps have announced their comeback.

The pop fivesome, famous for hits such as One For Sorrow, Tragedy and Love’s Got A Hold On My Heart back in the 1990s, will release a new album later this year and tour at the end of 2021.

“We couldn’t keep it a secret any longer!!” a message on the official Steps Twitter account said on Monday evening.

“Our new album What The Future Holds arrives on November 27th, and it’s available to pre-order from 8am tomorrow!”

It followed a series of cryptic posts featuring the Steps stars, referencing the past and the future, with one including a crystal ball.

Steps – Claire Richards, Lee Latchford-Evans, Lisa Scott-Lee, Faye Tozer and Ian “H” Watkins – were formed in the 1990s as a pop group with choreographed routines that fans could dance along to.

They released three platinum-selling albums and had two number one singles in the UK before they split up in 2001.

Her post has received more than 28,000 “likes” – and a message from Blue’s Anthony Costa, who said: “Wicked.”
