Steps to mark 25th Anniversary with release of ‘The Platinum Collection’

Steps have announced that they will release new greatest hits set ‘The Platinum Collection’ to mark their 25th anniversary.

The album arrives on 19th August 2022 via Sony Music. To mark the announcement, Steps have released their Platinum Megamix, which you can listen to now and we interviewed Claire and Lee about the album!

‘The Platinum Collection’ features the band’s greatest hits from 1997 to 2022 including their number ones ‘Heartbeat’, ‘Tragedy’ and ‘Stomp’. There are also hits from the band’s more recent albums ‘Tears on the Dancefloor‘, ‘What The Future Holds‘ and ‘What The Future Holds Pt. 2‘.

Speaking of the Platinum Collection, Steps add: “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 3 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. There will also be 5 very special solo editions, each with unique bonus tracks of the band’s favourite songs from across their career.
