The Saturdays Reveal 'New' Album Details, Cover Art
With the recent news of Girls Can't Catch being dropped by their label (Polydor/Fascination), likely due to poor single sales, I can't help but be a little fearful for the future of British girl groups. While The Saturdays seem to be making an effort at remaining relevant and PRESENT in an over-crowded pop market, I question the upcoming release of "new album," Headlines. The 8-track "mini album," Headlines, comes out on August 16th and features two previously released singles from the girls' last album, Wordshaker - "Ego" and "Forever Is Over." Why? We know those songs. Both singles peaked within the Top 10, with "Forever Is Over" even going all the way to the #2 spot.
It looks like The Saturdays are following in the footsteps of Lady Gaga's the Fame Monster. The only difference HERE is that Gaga's Fame Monster was a mini-masterpiece in and of itself. While I can't say for sure that The Saturdays' new release isn't, I highly doubt every single track is OMG-to-die-for pop music. I will reserve final judgement for August 16th but I'm just putting it out there now that I'm skeptical. First single "Missing You" is released on August 8th and features remixes by Cahill and Steve Smart & Westfunk.
