Three years after they staged one of the most successful comebacks of the decade, Steps returned with their sixth album What the Future Holds. The versatile new album saw the band reunite with the likes of Fiona Bevan (One Direction, Lewis Capaldi), Ina Wroldsen (Shakira, Britney Spears) and Karl Twigg, who worked on their first three albums, plus experiment with the likes of Hannah Robinson (Kylie), Sia and new pop shape-shifters such as Gracey and MNEK. “We will never forget the past with Steps, it's what made us,” say the band, “but we've got to look to the future too.”
What The Future Holds was announced on 7 September 2020 as Steps' sixth studio album. It was released on 27 November 2020 with the title track What The Future Holds appearing as a single.
