Steps are back and are ready to have you dancing through the disaster of a year that 2020 has been. ‘What The Future Holds’ is the lead single from their forthcoming sixth studio album of the same name, which will be released on November 27.
Written by Sia, this song reflects on how easy it is to get stuck in the past with our previous relationships, mistakes and decisions constantly plaguing our minds. But it’s all about remembering that the future has the potential to change everything, and that is the beacon of hope that we all need to hold onto. “One foot in the past and one foot in the future I need to take a class on staying right here with you” they sing during the pre-chorus.
Its an especially relatable sentiment with what is currently happening in the world with the COVID-19 pandemic. We all need a little hope and a reminder that our feelings are valid but we will grow, and that’s exactly what this song delivers.
The production is very traditional Steps. It’s brooding, theatrical and extravagantly pop in every way possible. It’s retrospective and nostalgic, while also playing up to the futuristic theme of the song with a cinematic twist. It’s a lot of fun, and it’s just as impressive as a lead single as ‘Scared Of The Dark’ from their last album.
