SUGABABES NEW PRESS RELEASE UNVEILED
According to an official press release, here are some of the tracks earmarked for inclusion on Sugababes' forthcoming album – "Change": -
- Never Gonna Dance Again: a relationship breakdown anthem set on a dancefloor - a sober reflection on the carefree first dances and final careless whispers of a failed relationship. (The song's closing, wounded cry of "it's over… It's over" could melt the stoniest of hearts.)
- Change: all gurgling electronic synths and William Orbit-esque production is a trademark Sugababes ballad worthy of a place alongside 'Too Lost in You' and 'Caught in a Moment'.
- Denial: revels in the Sugababes' raw, rockier edge.
- Goodbye: has some of the catchiest vocal hooks you'll hear all year.
Among the producers expected on the 5th installment are Dallas Austin (Janet Jackson, Leona Lewis), Bloodshy & Avant (Christina Milian, Brooke Valentine), William Orbit (Madonna, Gwen Stefani), Xenomania (Kylie Minogue, Girls Aloud) and Future Cut: Tunde Babalola & Darren Lewis (Nicole Scherzinger, Lily Allen).

Among the collaborators on that CD were Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins (Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey), Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis (Janet Jackson, Deborah Cox), Harvey Mason Jr. of The Underdogs (Toni Braxton, Keri Hilson), Richard Stannard & Julian Gallagher (Kylie Minogue, Gabrielle) and Mischke Butler (Blu Cantrell, Faith Evans).
