Claire said: ‘She wrote the track for herself but realised it wasn’t really for her and gave it to us.

‘It’s not like it was in the bottom of a drawer somewhere. It was her who said, ”We should give this to Steps because it would really suit them”.’

Lisa gushed about the opportunity to work with the singer: ‘I am such a huge Sia fan. Her music is completely up my street, I have so much admiration for her as an artist and a songwriter so I’m in pop heaven.’

‘Performing live has always been our favourite part of being in Steps – we had the most fun of our career on the last tour and we’re already planning for the next one to be our biggest spectacle yet.  

‘We’re also thrilled to have Sophie Ellis-Bextor as our special guest on the What The Future Holds 2021 Tour – her catalogue is full of floor-fillers and she knows how to get any party started. 

‘We are so excited for everyone to hear this new album and to come join us on tour.’
