Steps celebrate 25th anniversary with Platinum Collection

Graham Robson June 1, 2022

Five years on from staging one of the most successful comebacks of the decade, Steps are celebrating their 25 years in style with the Platinum Collection. The album is packed full of their greatest hits from 1997 to 2022 and will be released on the August 19 via Sony Music. Accompanying the announcement, Steps have also revealed their new Platinum Megamix – listen here – a fabulous reminder of all their gigantic hits from the past two and a half decades.

The Platinum Collection includes all their biggest and best hits including #1’s Heartbeat/Tragedy and Stomp plus epic comeback singles Scared Of The Dark and What The Future Holds alongside classics including One For Sorrow and Deeper Shade of Blue.

The band’s previous two Greatest Hits collections, Gold released in 2001 and the Ultimate Collection in 2011, both topped the Official Albums Chart and contained tracks from their first three studio albums – Step One, Steptacular and Buzz. Platinum Collection not only features some of those highlights but also tracks from three further albums – Tears On The Dancefloor, What The Future Holds and What The Future Holds Pt. 2. All three of those albums charted at #2 and between them yielded three iTunes #1’s and 10 Radio 2 A-List singles.

Steps said: “We cannot believe this year marks our 25th anniversary! Someone recently mentioned that the latest era of Steps has actually now outlasted our original run which was a delightful surprise. This anniversary marks the perfect moment to take a look back at everything we’ve achieved as a band.

“We realised that we’ve released a full three new studio albums since our last Greatest Hits so it felt like time to combine all our hits on one package. We’ve recorded two brand-new tracks for the album and presto, the Platinum Collection was born. It was such good fun listening back at 25 years of our songs and we hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane as much we did”.

The Platinum Collection is available to pre-order now in various formats including Standard CD, Deluxe 2CD, Vinyl, Cassette and Digital. To pre-order, CLICK HERE
