Sugababes: We’ve finally found ourselves as a band

Sugababes say they are closer than ever/Rex

The Sugababes have gone through so many line-up changes it would be easy to think that there'd be a lack of unity with the current trio - Heidi Range, Amelle Berrabah and Jade Ewen.

But the girls seem more in tune than ever before - chatting, laughing and finishing each other's sentences as we caught up with them over tea in central London.

As they prepare to release the first single from their eight album, the ladies told omg! they've finally reached a harmonious point...

Jade (the newest member of the band) told us: "We've found ourselves as a band. The last album, it was no secret, everything happened at the last minute. We recorded it separately - they were in LA/NY and I recorded in a shed in Wimbledon."

"We've been doing lots of gigs so that's given us time to bond. We always stay in each other's rooms."

The girls are back with their eight studio album and after our sneak peak listen to the new single Freedom, we're already hooked.

Amelle told us: "The track was more acoustic, country before but gradually it took shape and the Dub Step breakdown went in. It happened organically. It feels completely unique to us. We love big vocals and still get to showcase that side of it but still with an edge."

The trio recently had an emotional reunion with former member Keisha at Wireless and they told us she was the one to make the first move.

Heidi said: "It was nice to see her. There'd been a lot of time. It was very big of her to come over and say hello and try and clear the air."

So what do the girls make of the ex Sugababe's new solo venture? "We wish her well and she wishes us well. We all wish her the best."

Amelle recently drew headlines for her hot new figure so we had to ask her how she managed it?

She said: "I had a personal trailer two to three times a week and I just ate healthily. I did have snacks like chips but not a whole plate, just a handful. At the moment I just feel really healthy. I've gone beyond caring what people say."

Sugababes new single Freedom is out on September 19
