She’s already sold a staggering 5 million records as part of all conquering girl group The Saturdays. Now Mollie King finally unleashes her debut solo single, ‘Back To You’. Watch here.
The song will be released on Friday 19th August 2016 via Island Records, accompanied by a stunningly beautiful video, shot by critically acclaimed director Lisa Gunning (Fifty Shades of Grey, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, Seven Psychopaths).
Written by Mollie and Rob Persuad alongside producers The Blueprint (Ryan Ogren and Nick Bailey), ‘Back To You’ is a dreamy electropop track with an indelible synth-heavy chorus in which Mollie questions her constant return to a relationship which is just no good – ‘why do I keep coming back to you’.
Talking about the track, Mollie says ‘It’s a very personal song to me. A lot of my writing inspiration has come from what I’ve been through over the last couple of years’.
Mollie has spent the last year and a half writing and recording her debut solo material with some of the globes hottest producers. She has cited the process of writing and recording solo music as a massive learning curve, allowing her to hone her sound and talk about subject matters close to her heart.
Mollie confesses ‘In a band it’s sometimes difficult to write about personal experiences because there’s a lot of members. My solo material is the kind of music that I love, stylistically this is me and I’m saying things that I want to say.’
Mollie King is best known as one-fifth of leading girl group, The Saturdays. Since forming in 2007, the multi-platinum selling band have sold over 5 million records and concert tickets worldwide, scored 13 Top 10 singles and 5 Top 10 albums. The band also embarked on four nationwide headline tours and starred in three primetime TV series, including ‘Chasing The Saturdays’ for E! which aired in over 40 territories.
Beyond the group, Mollie has established herself as a mainstay of the fashion press, recently being shot for covers by Geist, Notion and Fault, alongside being a permanent fixture on London’s style scene.
