Over at myspace a message was recently posted from the sugababes official page that says the following;
Heidi and Amelle are suffering with a severe bout of flu. They’ve been instructed to take at least a week off before a reassessment and so will unfortunately be out of action for at least the next 7 days.
If you’d like to leave a message for the girls below, we’ll make sure it’s passed on to them.
Lets hope its not Swine flu, considering the country is currently in a pandemic!
Sugababes have been playing various festivals this summer including headlining Ponty’s Big Weekend festival in Wales and have recently returned from The States where they have been recording their 7th album after signing with Jay-Z’s Roc-a-Fella label and say they loved the chance to work with singers and producers including Ne-Yo, Stargate and RedOne.
Singer Keisha Buchanan said: “I think it’s given us a fresh energy again. I think the one thing we wanted to do was come back with something different. With each album we’ve always worked with a new producer and come out with a single which is so standout from the rest of the album.
“I think with their energy coming in, it’s definitely given us some life. It’s definitely got the British feel throughout the album – we’ve not gone away and gone ‘All American’ on our fans.”
Her bandmate Heidi Range added: “We had a fantastic time and worked with some of the biggest producers in the world at the moment. It was a really exciting process for us.”
The group have experienced several line-up changes before arriving at current formation of Keisha, Heidi and Amelle Berrabah but despite the upheaval, Keisha – the only remaining founder member – insists they have no plans to call it a day.
She added to BBC Newsbeat: “We’ll keep going just as long as we’re happy. I think the moment when we’re not really enjoying it anymore we’ll probably call it a day. ”
The current line up have released, Change, Catfights & Spotlights as well as the ‘Overloaded‘ Greatest Hits CD and DVD
