The Saturdays decided to release a mini-album instead of a full-length third record because they couldn’t wait for fans to hear their new songs.
As a follow-up to last year’s Wordshaker record, the Up singers are releasing their eight track Headlines CD next month – featuring some new songs that were recorded originally for their official third album, due in 2011.
“As soon as we heard ‘Missing You’ it just felt like a record that should be released now,” Mollie King revealed. “To us it’s the perfect summer song.”
The Saturdays release new single Missing You on August 9, with Headlines following a week later on August 16.
The group recently announced that they are shooting a reality TV series called Just Can’t Get Enough, set to broadcast in autumn on ITV2.
