Steps Confirm Comeback Single 'Scared Of The Dark', Album And Tour (All With A Little Help From ABBA)

We'll admit it, we're excited.

Lovers of cheesy pop and terrible dance routines rejoice! Steps have confirmed they are set to make a comeback with a new single, album and tour.

The five-piece have even managed to bag a song especially written for them by Benny and Bjorn of ABBA.

The band - Claire Richards, Ian ‘H’ Watkins, Lisa Scott-Lee, Lee Latchford-Evans and Faye Tozer - are reuniting to celebrate their 20th anniversary - and have turned to the Swedish pop legends to help them score a hit.

The Abba track, ‘Story Of A Heart’, features on their comeback album ‘Tears On The Dancefloor’.


First single from the album, ‘Scared Of The Dark’ is out this Friday, and, what this being Steps, the band have promised us all a fresh dance routine.

At the height of their fame Steps scored 13 consecutive top five singles, including ‘One For Sorrow’, ‘Stomp’, ‘Deeper Shade of Blue’ and their biggest hit, ‘Tragedy’.

They also shifted more than 20million albums in the Nineties and early Noughties, and embarked on several sold-out tours.

The band are set to hit the road again later this year on a 15-date arena tour and will be supported by another pop/dance outfit from the same era - the Vengaboys.

With so many of us concerned about the current state of the world, Steps believe their comeback could not have been planned better.

The band last reunited in 2012 for a Christmas album and arena tour, but the group say they are in it for the long haul this time.
