Steps have just revealed the brand new video for the latest single to be taken from their new album Tears On The Dancefloor, Neon Blue. The video sees the band – plus a cast of colorful characters and a club full of party goers – leave their worries behind, let loose and dance to the sounds of Neon Blue. The video was directed by Steps stylist and creative director Frank Strachan alongside the band’s own Lee Latchford-Evans. Watch the video below.
Neon Blue was written by Carl Ryden and Fiona Bevan, the team behind the album’s first single ‘Scared Of The Dark’ which hit #1 on the UK iTunes chart earlier this year. The track received its first play earlier in the year when Tears On The Dancefloor was Radio 2’s Album of the Week.
Of Neon Blue, Steps have said, “It’s about letting yourself go with the person you care about. It’s about the feeling of being surrounded by the warm neon glow of a dance-floor where worries really do drift away, even if it’s just for three minutes.
Tears On The Dancefloor charted at Number 2 on the Official Albums Chart after a close challenge with Ed Sheeran for the top spot. The bands’ album was also the most downloaded during its first week of release. Steps recently performed their first-ever acoustic session for Chris Evans Radio 2 breakfast show, which included a cover of Starships ‘Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now’.
In celebration of Steps’ album release and the band’s twentieth anniversary, the band is heading out on the ‘Party On The Dancefloor’ tour this November and December. The original dates on this arena tour sold out in a matter of days, and the 7 extra dates added due to phenomenal demand are now also close to selling out. Last remaining tickets are available from www.axs.com and www.ticketmaster.co.uk.
Brit-award winners Steps have scored fourteen consecutive top 5 singles, sold over 20 million records and reached Number One with three albums and three singles.
