Sugababes have released a remix of their debut single Overload as part of the 20th anniversary reissue of their first album One Touch.
The trio's pop-R&B debut has been reworked into a UK garage-influenced track, courtesy of Metronomy and rising British pop artist Tatyana. Listen below:
Member Siobhan Donaghy said: “We’re so grateful Metronomy agreed to make a remix for us as part of our 20th anniversary. Performing their Love Letters track with them all at the NME Awards in 2014 was a special moment. It was like it was written for us, a real 60’s girlband moment, unlike anything we’d performed before so it was important for us to have them on this journey and to see them revisit Overload makes it extra special!”
Metronomy’s Joseph Mount adds: “Overload is such a brilliant pop song. I was captivated by it when it was released and remember rushing out to buy the single. I owe a lot to the Sugababes in terms of how my view of pop music changed from Overload onwards, I know that thousands of producers and artists alike had a similar experience. It would be impossible to top the original, but It’s nice to give it a try with Tatyana; herself a disciple of the Sugababes and ground-breaking pop producer in her own right.”
The remix will feature on an expanded version of One Touch, released on 1 October and is available on limited edition tri-colour vinyl, coloured vinyl, 2xCD, and digital.
The collection will feature demos, rarities and more remixes, including the recently released Run For Cover by MNEK, and a rework of album track Same Old Story by Blood Orange (aka Dev Hynes).
One Touch was released in December 2000, landing at Number 77 on the Official Albums Chart, climbing to its Number 26 peak in April 2001. The album spawned four Top 40 singles, including Overload, which topped out at Number 6. View Sugababes' Official Chart history in full here.
