All Saints release stellar new comeback single 'One Strike'

2016-02-23
Almost a month after announcing their second comeback proper, All Saints have unveiled their brand new single 'One Strike' - and even better, it's already available to download. The track is the girls' first original material in almost a decade, and precedes the release of fourth studio album Red Flag on April 8. ‘One Strike’ was apparently inspired by Nicole Appleton’s split from Oasis star Liam Gallagher, and writer Shaznay says the lyrics come from a “very real” place. “Nic was going through a lot of things at that time. That was at the forefront of my mind because it was the heaviest thing going on,” she says. Natalie adds: “The first few times I heard it in my car I couldn’t stop crying because I could hear so clearly what it was about.” The girls say that touring the UK briefly back in 2014 inspired them to get back in the studio for a comeback proper. “We didn’t force ourselves into this situation and it couldn’t have happened at a better time in all of our lives,” Natalie explains. “I just missed being with the girls. It makes us happy. Listen, if you can work with your favourite people, then why not? I have such a good time and I spend more time laughing and having fun than I do working.” saints The girls - who will play their first headline gig in a decade at London's KOKO April 4 - have also released the artwork and tracklist for Red Flag, and considering the LP includes at track called 'Ratchet Behaviour', it's fair to say that our anticipation is HIGH to hear the rest of their new material. All Saints will release Red Flag on April 8.
