It just wasn’t a school disco until you’d danced to “5,6,7,8” or “Tragedy”. Steps have taken a look at 2020 and decided to come to our rescue with some good news, finally.

The incessantly perky popstars have confirmed a new single, album and tour, all called What The Future Holds.

The band started teasing fans yesterday with the hashtag #WTFH (not sure what H makes of that) and Twitter went into meltdown.

Today they’ve confirmed a huge 14 date UK arena tour kicking off in November 2021 too, alongside the album and single. The title track, What The Future Holds has been written by none other than Sia.  The tour will go on general sale from Friday 18th September 2020 at 10am, and to make it even more poptastic they’ve confirmed Sophie Ellis-Bextor will be supporting.

What The Future Holds is their sixth studio album and will be released on November 27th.

Steps say “We will never forget the past with Steps, it’s what made us, but we’ve got to look to the future too. Performing live has always been our favourite part of being in Steps – we had the most fun of our career on the last tour and we’re already planning for the next one to be our biggest spectacle yet. We’re also thrilled to have Sophie Ellis-Bextor as our special guest on the What The Future Holds 2021 Tour – her catalogue is full of floor-fillers and she knows how to get any party started. We are so excited for everyone to hear this new album and to come join us on tour.

Fans are excited, to say the least.

Time to get practising the dance routines again.
