They are back: Mutya Keisha Siobhan have unveiled their first single -Flatline - since reforming
The song is the first full track fans have heard from the group since they reformed and it will feature on their upcoming album, which will follow later this year.
The group recently revealed that they had finished work on their first album since their debut album One Touch in 2000.
Keisha Buchanan admitted that they had decided to turn down ‘big songs’ from well-known producers to retain a level of authenticity.
She said: ‘The album is finished and we all love it. I think it's the strongest yet. It's not manufactured in any way.
‘We turned down big songs that would be huge hits because they weren't right for the album. We haven't been afraid to make the music we wanted to make.’
Siobhán Donaghy, Mutya Buena, and Keisha Buchanan were the original members of the Sugababes who joined forces for the first time over fourteen years ago.
More soon: The group will be releasing their first album in 14 years later this year
After announcing their reunion in July of last year they opened up candidly for the first time about their split.
Speaking to Ponystep magazine at the end of last year Keisha said: 'I remember sitting on my coach watching Mutya being interviews on 'Lorraine' just after I'd left the Sugababes, and Lorraine said "you might as well call Siobhan and get the original band back together." I could see Mutya thinking "perhaps". That was the start.'
'After that I facebooked Siobhan and we said we should meet up,' Mutya added.
Back in the day: The trio as they were, at the height of their fame as the Sugababes
Although before the three ladies could even think about creating new music together, there were some problems to work out.
Reincarnation: Jade Ewen, Amelle Berrabah and Heidi Range are now known as the Sugababes
'Me and Siobhan had to sit down and have that conversation before anything else,' Keisha admited.
'There were a lot of things misconstrued over the years and we weren't in a good place. But we reached an understanding and were able to move forward.'
Speaking about the new album Mutya revealed the sound would be a little different to 14 years ago, she said: 'I think it's a step up from the first album.I just hope people will enjoy it. Actually, I know people will enjoy it!'
And judging by the reaction on Twitter the new music has gone down just as well with their fans as their old stuff.
One follower wrote: 'OH MY GOD IT'S SO GREAT #MKSFlatline thank you @MKSOfficial'
Another added: '#Flatline is PERFECT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!'
The group are no longer able to use the name Sugababes as it is currently being used by the current incarnation of the Sugababes, Heidi Range, Jade Ewen and Amelle Berrabah.
Sugababes have undergone a number of format changes since they made their chart debut in 2000 with Overload.
Siobhan left the band in 2001 after just one album, and was replaced with Heidi Range.
Mutya later departed in 2005 due to personal reasons following the birth of her daughter, with Amelle Berrabah taking her place.
Finally, Keisha quit the Sugababes in September 2009 after a reported fall-out with Amelle.
