Mutya Keisha Siobhan: 'We could have kept Sugababes name but we just don't need it'

Vocal trio Mutya Keisha Siobhan, who were previously known as the Sugababes, have revealed that the old moniker could still have been theirs if they had really wanted to fight for it.

Member Keisha Buchanan told BBC News that their new material and dynamic speaks for itself so they didn't feel the need to take a step back with their original bandname: "We could have had the name if we wanted to go and get it, I guess. But I don't feel like we needed it. There was so much emphasis on the name and we wanted it to be about us."

Songstress Siobhan added that after the way the girls parted they were interested to see what new material would sound like so it was important to move forwards and focus on the future: "I think the music has moved on and it's more contemporary, so it's not similar to 'One Touch' in that sense, but what is similar is that we've chosen lots of different genres of music that we're able to put together on one album that still sounds like a body of work."

"I think we felt like there was unfinished business with the way the other band ended up, and it felt like, what would the next album after 'One Touch' have sounded like? We wanted to give it a try."
