All Saints are back with their first new album since 2009 and let’s hope this time around the foursome are getting along better.

“We just weren’t really getting on any more and we kind of hated each other so we just thought ‘f**k it, let’s stop,’” said Melanie. “Which was the right thing to do, I think,” Shaznay added. “We didn’t do it for the money. We didn’t carry on for the money like some bands even though they hated each other,” Melanie then continued.

But now the girls are older and wiser, they’ve been able to put their differences aside and are having a great time being back together. “It’s amazing. It’s just heart-eyes everywhere. Love. We just have the best time,” Melanie said.

“I think we just avoid it, purely just because we put everything on the table and say how we are feeling, but it’s not even got to that yet,” Nicole added. In February the group released their comeback single ‘One Strike’, inspired by Nicole's divorce from Oasis’ frontman Liam Gallagher in 2013.
