Emeli Sande to help original Sugababes

Emeli Sande helps original Sugababes with their comeback

Rising Scots star Emeli Sandé has been giving a helping hand to a comeback by the original Sugababes.

The current line-up of the girl group are on a break but the Brit award-winning singer-songwriter has penned a new song for the first line-up.

Keisha Buchanan, Mutya Buena and Siobhan Donaghy have already started secretly recording a new album.

The girls were working on a new track – Love Like This, written by Emeli and producer Naughty Boy – at a studio in London last week.

An insider said: “The song is about not being able to be loved because you have been hurt so many times before.

“It’s also about thinking you have been loved before when, in reality, you haven’t.”

The girls are planning to put together an album of songs and secure a record deal, with help from new manager Felix Howard. Three labels have already shown an interest.
