The Girls Reunite

Calm down people, I'm not dwelling on another Spice Girls reunion rumor (although I could, there have been twenty a day since they split), I am talking about All Saints (and this is a fact). On January 24th of this year it was announced that the girl group best known for hits like "I Know Where It's At", "Never Ever" and "Pure Shores", has reunited and signed a deal with Parlophone records. They are due to release their third studio album as early as November of this year.

The Girls have all enjoyed moderate solo success since the group split in 2001. Melanie Blatt released a few lukewarm singles which never culminated in a full album release, Shaznay Lewis, said to have been the driving force behind the group due to the fact she was responsible for penning most of their hit songs, released a solo record in 2004 called "Open" which went to # 22 on the UK charts, and also played in several films including "Bend It Like Beckham" with Keira Knightly. Perhaps the most successful of the girls though, were sisters Nicky and Natalie Appleton. Forming their own duo simply called "Appleton", in 2002 the girls first single "Fantasy" reached #2 in the UK charts, and their subsequent album "Everything's Eventual" which entered the charts at #9, went gold after two months of it's release.

Let's hope that the group will have similar (if not better) success with it's new endeavors. Welcome Back.
