Steps worried they’d be slammed for being “insensitive” with the title of their new single.
The quintet – which includes Ian ‘H’ Watkins, Claire Richards, Faye Tozer, Lee Latchford-Evans and Lisa Scott-Lee – staged a “massive discussion” around their comeback track ‘What The Future Holds’ because they were concerned people would think they had “taken advantage” of the current climate amid the coronavirus crisis.
Faye told new! magazine: “We actually had a big meeting, a massive discussion, asking if it was insensitive to put out a song with the title ‘What The Future Holds’, knowing the uncertainty of what’s going on right now.
“Half of us wanted to continue with it, half of us didn’t, but ultimately we decided everyone needs a bit of hope and happiness and so we decided to go ahead.”
Claire added: “We’d hate for anyone to think we’d taken advantage of a bad situation to release a song with a title like that.”
