The New Sugababes Single "Freedom" Doesn't Suck

No one was more sad than yours d'luvvly to see Sugababes do a spectacular flame-out with their last album, Sweet 7. And, yes, I pretty much expected mademoiselles Heidi Range, Amelle Berrabah and newest member Jade Ewen to take up truck stop stripper poling after the trio's inevitable split.

Only, they didn't split. They trudged on. And now they're back with "Freedom," a total jam that makes the last five singles by The Saturdays sound like tinfoil in a blender (mind you, not that any of us needed Sugababes to make that assertion).

"Freedom" was first teased back in May in the Nokia N8 commercial it's tied in with. Then there was a lyric video a few weeks back.

Here's the full song, in all its whip-crack, synth-sexy glory:



UK single release is set for September 5.

    I am not a Sugababes fan but I am kind of digging this song. The only bad thing is the "dom, dom" after Freedom.

    A great track. The real question is will people take to the song or continue punishing Sugababes 4.0 for having no original members?

    This will actually be interesting.
