The Sugababes have started working on their new album, their manager has revealed.

The group, which Heidi Range recently insisted are not splitting despite poor sales on their latest album Sweet 7, are reportedly going back in to the studio to start work on their eighth album.

The trio's manager Mark Hargreaves has now spoken out, insisting that the group are in high spirits and are working on a new record.

Hargreaves told Now: "They're a very happy group today. They can't wait to get back into the studio and bring back that feelgood factor."

The magazine also reports that their previous hit single 'Girls' recorded with former Sugababe Keisha Buchanan will be re-recorded with new member Jade Ewan's vocals, and will be used to promote US department store JC Penney.

Hargreaves said: "It's brought a massive resurgence of interest in the band over there."

Buchanan is reportedly in talks about penning a tell-all book on her time in the band.

NST Music Makers ~ Sweet 7 Review

Get it and sing happy! SUGABABES Sweet 7 (Universal Music) I DON’T know the members of this British pop girl band these days, but I guess it doesn’t matter because the music from the group sounds pretty generic. Danceable pop.

Mindless electro beats.

Lyrics oozing promises of sex.

It’s all found in this seventh album from this chameleon girl band whose brand has been around for a decade.

Amazing, isn’t it? The sleeve notes state that Sugababes now comprises Heidi Range, Amelie Berrabah and Jade Ewen.

The songs are all radio-friendly. Of the 11 tracks, Wear My Kiss is the most memorable for its use of the vocoder and the chorus: “You wanna wear my kiss/All over your body/Once you try it on, you can’t live without it.” Standouts include the sweet bubblegum pop of Sweet & Amazing and the ballad Little Miss Perfect.

While nothing from Sweet 7 reach the mashup fun of Freak Like Me, not even Sean Kingston of You’re Beautiful Girl fame on Miss Everything, the tracks are club bangers, especially She’s A Mess.

The album is great for electro-pop fans.
