The Sugababes announce the re-release of their debut album One Touch and talk about new musical plans
The Sugababes have announced the re-release of their debut album One Touch to celebrate its 20th anniversary.
The band’s original lineup – Keisha Buchanan, Siobhan Donaghy and Mutya Buena – will release an expanded version of their debut album in October.
The collection will include demos, rarities and rework from acts such as Blood Orange (aka Dev Hynes), Metronomy and MNEK, the latter having remixed their 2001 single Run For Cover, released today (May 11).
Discussing their debut with NME, Keisha said she had “nostalgic and … mixed emotions as it takes me back to my early teens. It’s special. What I love is that ‘One Touch’ gets justice it deserves because even though I love our other albums, I always thought it was a shame that we didn’t get the boost it really deserved. “
One Touch was released in December 2000, landing at number 77 on the official album chart, peaking at number 26 in April 2001. The album spawned four Top 40 singles, including their first Top 10 hit, Overload . See the entire official Sugababes chart history here.
The One Touch reissue – released October 1 – will be available as a limited edition in tri-color vinyl, colored vinyl, 2xCD and digital.

Siobhan Donaghy also revealed that the band’s long overdue new music is coming, but admitted, “Covid threw a wrench into the works. We were recording ahead of the series of lockdowns last year, but we have so much material. that we need to work, we probably need to do some more recording.
“As soon as we can get back together in the studio, we’re going to be working on something new. But there’s a lot of material that I think we should put together because it’s one of our best work ever and it would be a shame if he was not released properly.
Keisha added, “We recorded something pretty interesting before the lockdown which for me hasn’t felt so excited about a song since. [2013 single] Flatline. “
