Listen to Heartbreak In This City featuring Michelle Visage HERE.
Heartbreak In This City has been the clear fan favourite from latest album What The Future Holds and sees the band reunite with writer Karl Twigg (responsible for their hits ‘One For Sorrow’, ‘Deeper Shade of Blue’ and ‘Stomp’) for the first time in nearly a decade. This brand-new single mix of Steps Heartbreak In This City features the legendary Michelle Visage, who is simultaneously appearing on BBC 3’s Drag Race UK Season 2 and Stan’s Drag Race US Season 13, while filming Season 1 of Drag Race Australia.
Speaking of the track, the Drag Race judge and singer Michelle said: “To say that I’m honoured to record a song with pop icons STEPS is the understatement of the year. With the state of the world today, we all need music that makes us feel good and trust me when I tell you, Heartbreak In This City is an absolute BOP! After years of dreaming about it, for at least a moment in time, I can officially be “Michelle from Steps”! CAN SOMEONE PINCH ME PLEASE? I hope everyone loves listening to it as much as I loved recording it!”
Michelle has been a big supporter of the band and their latest album What The Future Holds.
The band described what spurred the single mix: Lee started “The idea for this collaboration came about when we did an Instagram Live with Michelle on album release week.” H continues, “I LOVE Heartbreak In This City and we thought Michelle would be PERFECT to take it to the next level. I am the world’s #1 Drag Race superfan and BESIDE myself she’s joined us on the song!” Lisa adds, “Her voice fit the song perfectly and we’re proud she’s now our unofficial sixth member!”
Speaking of their excitement of the track, Faye said “Not only did Michelle and I have the same dance partner Giovanni Pernice on Strictly Come Dancing, but we both played the role of Miss Hedge in the West End production of ‘Everybody’s Talking About Jamie’. We’ve since become good friends and constantly chat all things Strictly and Drag Race by WhatsApp!” Claire continues “On top of being a brilliant Drag Race judge, people might not realise that Michelle is an incredible singer who was first part of the girl group Seduction and had a huge hit with The S.O.U.L. S.Y.S.T.E.M. on the Bodyguard soundtrack, one of the greatest selling albums of all time”.
What The Future Holds went Silver within the first month of its release and was the most downloaded album in the UK over the Christmas period. In Australia, the album was the groups highest chart placing in two decades. The five-piece will also be heading on their sure-to-be epic What The Future Holds 2021 UK Tour in November 2021, headlining 18 arena shows across the UK including two dates at London’s The O2 and will be joined by the brilliant Sophie Ellis-Bextor as a special guest.
