Sugababes’ ‘When The Rain Comes’ Radiates Pop Brilliance

It's out now...

Don’t look now, but Sugababes have just supplied a new classic.

The trio – Mutya Buena, Keisha Buchanan and Siobhan Donaghy – will play one of the biggest shows of their lives tonight, hitting The O2 Arena in London for a packed out show. A moment of celebration, they’ve decided to glide out some magical new material into the world.

Penned alongside George Moore – who has written with Stormzy and NAO, amongst others – ‘When The Rain Comes’ is a deliciously moody piece of pop excellence, the type of thing Sugababes have long since made their own.

Vocally, it’s supreme; each voice is given space to express itself, their individual characters both protected and emphasised. A new album is slated for 2024, and on this evidence it more than stands it ground against Sugababes’ illustrious catalogue.

The band add… 

“We loved being back in the studio and writing this song this summer, and it feels like the perfect song to release to coincide with our biggest headline show to date. This song is a celebration of the people in our lives who stand by us and lift us up through the good and bad times. The three of us have been that for each other over the years, and we felt there was no better way to mark this moment in our journey than with this song.”
