Here & Now recorded by another band!
Thanks to Jenni for pointing this out: Here & Now, the current single from Steps, has been recorded by another group: French boyband Worlds Apart. The song is musically different (probably different production team) but lyrically the song is identical. We believe that the song was possibly offered to Steps and Worlds Apart, who have both recorded the song. Either way I don’t think the song can be classed as a cover as I am led to believe that Worlds Apart haven’t released it as a single or anything, so Steps will be credited with releasing it first!
On today’s UK charts, Steptacular remains inside the UK top 40 dropping down three to number 37 on the albums chart. The Live Wembley video continues its run in the Top 10 by moving up one place to number seven.
