EDITORS’ NOTES

Fifteen years is several lifetimes in pop. Fortunately for Steps, their pop was never beholden to vogueish trends—they’ve consistently dealt in the unashamedly feel-good. The band’s fifth album—and first non-festive effort since 2000’s Buzz—stays true to these values. “Story of a Heart” is a magisterial Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson orginal you’re amazed Steps haven’t recorded before now, “No More Tears on the Dancefloor” allows Lee and H a rare chance to shine, while “Scared of the Dark” might be a career-best single.

Steps are back and better than ever!

It's been over 15 years since we last had a full album of original material from Steps, but you wouldn't guess that from listening to "Scared of the Dark" which picks up like no time at all has passed! Slick, fun, and danceable - this track is everything a Steps fan could want out of a reunion.

I cannot believe they're back!

This made my day! Like running into some old friends! Loving this new single and I'm sure the album will be equally incredible! :)
