This is a pop fan's wet dream come true. Mutya Keisha Siobhan, the three original Sugababes are officially back together and releasing music very shortly.
While you can read a lot about it on Popjustice (who had the exclusive first interview), let's all remind ourselves of the brilliance of the whole thing.
1/ Overload: easily one of the 46 best songs of all time
2/ Run For Cover: totally among the 59 best songs ever
Then we all know what happened is Sugaland: Siobhan left and was replaced by Heidi (aka the most stupid popstar ever), then Mutya left and was replaced by Amelle, then Keisha was fired and replaced by useless Jade.
Let us not forget that in their solo time, both Mutya and Siobhan released great records. The former had one fantastic single called Song 4 Mutya (Out Of Control) on her 2006 album Real Girl while the latter clearly wrote one of the 23 best records in the history of pop, her 2007 album Ghosts that is. Pure brilliance and fantastic songs.
Here's an example with Don't Give it Up.
Can't wait to hear what those three have been up to. Hopefully it won't suck, and will make 2012 a perfect girlband year, with the return of the Almighty Girls Aloud on the horizon, and the probable Spice Girls performance at the Olympics. And who knows, maybe the Dolly Rockers will finally release something? (let's hope they don't).
