Steps Return With First New Music in Over 5 Years [LISTEN]


Steps Return With First New Music in Over 5 Years [LISTEN]

British dance-pop group Stepsperhaps best known for their hits Tragedy and 5-6-7-8, and who originally broke through in the late 90s for their highly-choreographed moves– are making a return next month, with their first studio release in over five years.

Discounting those ‘Greatest Hits’ repackages -that surfaced around 2011-2012– new single Scared of the Dark marks the first and only truly new track to have become available to download (and stream) by the band, in half-a-decade.

Arriving ahead of the band’s expected fifth studio album – Tears on the Dancefloor – due out April 21, the upbeat release starts off by parading that unmistakable 90’s vibe which ultimately made the group a success and that long-time fans will likely be fully expecting – before descending into an electro-infused baseline worthy of 2017‘s new music scene.

Perhaps notably, at least here in the UK, it appears Apple has created a whole new artist directory page on iTunes for the once-famed band – with the group’s current profile page only showing upcoming album: Tears on the Dancefloor, in some regions.

This makes sense from a marketing standpoint as with the sheer number of albums available under the old Steps profile, Apple is likely looking for listeners to be able to head straight to the group’s new album (currently available for pre-order) … without having to wade through older discs.

Fear not though, as searching the iTunes Store for the term “Steps” soon reveals the band’s (currently hidden?) full past discography – including 2011‘s The Ultimate Collection, and 2016 re-package: 5-6-7-8: The Collection.
