Steps is Hard 2 Forget

Filed under: Popular Music — Dr. Christopher Blackwell @ 16:44

Steps has released its first new single from its upcoming Platinum Collection album! Entitled, “Hard 2 Forget,” the song was written by US pop artist VINCINT with Grammy-nominee JHart (Little Mix) and STORYBOARDS, the track is also accompanied today by a brand-new video – watch here. Set in an East London café after a massive night out, the video features a colourful cast of characters including Drag Race UK star Charity Kase.

Describing the song, Steps add: “This 25th anniversary year has been all about looking back at our history and celebrating so many wonderful moments throughout our career.  The last few years have been made extra special by the incredible response to our new music.  We couldn’t release the Platinum Collection without something brand-new for our fans, and we are SO excited to share our new single ‘Hard 2 Forget’.  The moment we heard it, we knew it had the DNA of a classic Steps song but with a modern edge. We hope you all love it as much as we do!”
