New Year (Sugababes)
Despite the title the word “new” doesn’t appear this mid-tempo second single from English trio Sugababes. The lyrics speak of heartbreak for a lover who “went away, a year ago, at Christmas” but the focus is on not looking back and rekindling the relationship – but looking forward, in other words, starting “new”.
Gotta wake up fresh, get on my feet
Push the thought of you away
Fun fact: The track features the original Sugababes lineup who all subsequently left the group at various times but reunited in 2012 as Mutya Keisha Siobhan.
