Today All Saints announce their brand new single ‘Love Lasts Forever’ and a new album ‘Testament’.
‘Love Lasts Forever’ will be released this Thursday 31st May, following an exclusive play on The Chris Evans Radio 2 breakfast show.
Written by Shaznay and Karl ‘KGee’ Gordon (writers of many of the band’s biggest hits), and produced by Karl, the track is a joyous, uplifting, harmony led pop song that is both unmistakably All Saints and sonically modern.
The single will be followed by the new album ‘Testament’ released Friday 13th July, both released via Absolute.
The record sees the band collaborating once again with producer William Orbit, the force behind their massive hits ‘Pure Shores’ and ‘Black Coffee’. Fans will be delighted that All Saints are working with Orbit again, as they have long hoped for new material from the band and William.
Shaznay says: “This album feels exactly where we should be – and want to be – right now creatively. We worked extremely hard to make sure every sound on this album was exactly right, alongside my right-hand man KGee – and the girls made sure we kept this album heading in the direction that felt right for us as a band. I really enjoyed writing this album with some very talented producers including Karl “KGee” Gordon, Fred Ball, Hutch, and a brilliant young producer George Moore who’s new to our team who brought a whole new flavour to the record. A highlight was reuniting with the king of beautiful interesting sounds, William Orbit, which was just amazing”.
Nicole adds: “Making this album has been an incredible experience. I’ve had the best journey and, as always, endless fun and laughter with my girls! Every song on the album means something to me that’s why I love it so much! I’m so super proud of it”.
In addition to new music, All Saints today also announce a gig at London’s Brixton Electric on Wednesday July 11th, where they will be premiering tracks from the new album. Tickets for the show go on sale Friday June 1st (info at www.allsaintsofficial.co.uk).
All Saints have to date sold over 12million records, had five No.1 singles, 3 hit albums and two BRIT awards. After a 10 year hiatus, All Saints returned in 2016 with the hugely successful and critically acclaimed album ‘Red Flag’, which reached No.3 in the Official UK Albums Chart.
Post album release, the band embarked on a sold out tour of the UK, before a summer of festival appearances in 2017. All Saints also played to over half a million people, supporting Take That on their arena tour of the UK.
