Well, no need to fear because their back with a brand new single and video.Missing You is the first single to be taken from their third studio album (or rather mini-album) Headlines. The single will be released on 6th August in Ireland and 9th August in the UK with the album following a week later.
I’m not really loving the track, to be honest. Taking into account that this is only my first listen, I’m not exactly swayed with what I’m hearing. The Saturdays might have scored two Top 10 hits with Forever Is Over and Ego, but the album they were taken from (Wordshaker) have flopped harder than a fat man’s belly.
They shouldn’t have returned with a ballad, even if it does use copious amounts of music’s latest trend…my friend Auto-Tune. So my first thoughts about the new Saturdays single is that it’s dull as dishwasher.
The music video, which was filmed in Malaga, Spain, is nothing to write home about either. Haven’t we seen girlbands fly out to exotic locations over and over again to film music videos? At least all five ladies look absolutely stunning! There are definitely no mingers in this band.
So tell me what you think of The Saturdays new single? Are you looking forward to a return? With Sugababes desperately working on a new album and Girls Aloud on extended hiatus, do you feel that The Saturdays can fill the girlband void? Thoughts below.
