If you haven’t already heard, ex-Steps members, H and Claire, who were rumoured to have split the group up, are working together as a duo to bring you more “Steps-like” sounds.
Signing a stonking GBP4 million contract with WEA a couple of days back, Claire Richard and H, also known as Ian Watkins, have agreed on a 4-album deal. Steps’s old label Jive had hoped to sign the pair but Claire said, “They didn’t exactly offer the best deal.”
Their debut single, ‘DJ’, said to be shot in Miami, is due out on the 6th of May. Talking to the press, Claire said “It will sound similar to Steps but gradually we will change our sound slightly.”
The two popsters flew off recently to Sweden to work with Jorgen Elofsson, who wrote Will Young’s track “Evergreen.”
They’ll also have their very first live performance at the G-A-Y Nightclub come 4th of May.
