Atomic Kitten’s Natasha Hamilton has revealed that she is set to launch her solo career with a brand new single.

Natasha Gay (nee Hamilton) teased the new single, The Edge Of Us, which is set to be released on May 31.

In an emotional post on social media, Natasha, 41, announced: ‘I can’t believe I’m saying this, but my FIRST single as a solo artist: The Edge Of Us is dropping on the Friday 31st of May

‘It’s been an incredible journey, and I’m thrilled to share it with you all. Who’s ready to hear it?!’

The singer first came to fame as one of the members of Atomic Kitten, joining the band in 1999 when original member Heidi Range left. 

Natasha was a bandmate when Atomic Kitten found massive acclaim with hits like Eternal Flame, Tide is High, The Last Goodbye, If You Come To Me, and Whole Again which hit number one and went double platinum in the UK.

The singer performed with the band on and off over the last few years and as recently as last year, when she joined bandmate Liz McClarnon to perform at a concert celebrating Liverpool music for the Eurovision Song Contest.

Although she has been performing with the band for over two decades, the singer has never once performed or released music as a solo artist – until now.

Atomic Kitten has had five key members over the years with former members including TV personality Kerry Katona. Current members are cited as Jenny Frost, Liz McClarnon, and Natasha, however the group hasn’t released a new studio album since 2003.

Outside of the band, the star has five children aged between 21-years-old to nine months. Her youngest child, a daughter named Kitty Iris, was born just last year in August. 

The singer is married to Charles Gay, her youngest daughter’s father, who she married in Lake Como in 2021.
