Firstly, how are you settling in Jade?
Jade: "Really well thanks. I'm having so much fun and it feels like I've been here forever now. I'm getting confident with the songs and it's nice being involved in discussions about things like our new video."
How do you think the group's coped with all the recent publicity?
Heidi: "It's flattering that there's a lot of interest, but I wouldn't say that all publicity is good publicity. There have been some pretty hurtful things written about us."
Amelle: "What's frustrating is that a lot of it's untrue. There are times when you want to tell people what actually happened, but we're glad we haven't. We're dignified people and we just want to concentrate on our future."
Are you pleased with how 'About A Girl' performed in the charts?
Amelle: "Really pleased. We only did one bit of TV promo so we didn't expect it to get into the top ten."
Jade: "We didn't know how people were going to accept the line-up change, so when it made the top ten, we were like, 'Wooohooo!'"
Heidi: "We also felt the song was being overshadowed by everything that was going on. Obviously Amelle was away for a lot of the promo period, so we were really pleased with how it did."
How many new songs have you recorded since Jade joined the group?
Amelle: "So far we've recorded two new songs that are going on the album."
Jade: "We don't have a definite number of songs to go on there. It's an ongoing thing and if we like six new ones, they'll all go on there!"
Amelle: "It's really nice to have Jade on board for new songs right from the beginning, but we're not going to scrap any of the ones we already have. This album's going to be the longest hour ever!"
Why did you choose 'Wear My Kiss' to be the next single?
Heidi: "It's had a really good response from radio and our fans on the website. It's also quite appropriate as it comes out around Valentine's Day - there's a lot of kissing going on then!"
What can we expect from the video?
Heidi: "It's quite futuristic. We don't want to give too much away, but we filmed it on green screen and the backdrops will be filled in later. It was the easiest shoot ever because we didn't have to keep changing from set to set. I even got back for Corrie!"
Amelle: "It's different to any of our other videos. It's not what you'd expect from us!"
What are the chances of Jade's solo songs, 'My Man' and 'Punching Out', making it onto the new Sugababes album?
Jade: "If the girls liked them and if it worked, it could happen. They're really open to it and asked to hear some of my material, but my solo stuff is quite different to what we do now. I'd be flattered, but I'm not going to take offence if they turn them down."
What kind of chart position are you aiming for with the album?
All: "Number one!"
Amelle: "I think this album can go all the way. There are a lot of really good songs on there and we're so proud of it."
Heidi: "It all depends which week you release it though. One time we were up against Coldplay and I remember thinking, 'What are the label doing?' You know, I think we're just glad that we're getting to perform together."
Amelle: "Obviously number one would be great, but we're not going to be crying our eyes out if we don't get it. Top ten would be great!"
Are your US label, Roc Nation, planning to launch you across the pond?
Heidi: "The plan is we take the album to Europe and follow that with America. Fingers crossed. They definitely see this album working in America, but we haven't decided on singles or anything yet."
Amelle: "Well, we're going back and forth to Europe at the moment, but we also really want to break new territories like Asia."
What do you think of reports that the three original Babes are reuniting?
Heidi: "It would be a bit strange, but we're concentrating on us. It's not something that we're focusing on. It's not something that keeps us awake at night."
Finally, you're about to release a cover of 'Santa Baby'. How did that come about?
Amelle: "Well, we were rehearsing for a show and we started singing it as a joke. Our label really liked it and wanted to put it out to radio. We've just performed it for Christmas Top Of The Pops and it got a really great response from the audience."
Sugababes release their version of 'Santa Baby' on December 21.
