Stooshe Disown Their Cover Of TLC's 'Waterfalls': "We're Pretending It Didn't Happen"

The 'Black Heart' trio say the cover won't be appearing on their upcoming self-titled album.
Stooshe have disowned their cover of the TLC hit 'Waterfalls' and claimed their record label insisted they release it as a single last year.
The 'Love Me' trio released their own reworking of the 1995 girl band hit in November 2012, but say the release as "never our decision" and have vowed the track will not appear on their delayed debut album.
"We are pretending 'Waterfalls' didn't happen," band member Karis Anderson revealed to the Daily Star this week. "That song was never our decision.
"'Waterfalls' is not going on the album," the Stooshe star confirmed. "We love the TLC version, but we didn't like it as a single for us."
Stooshe singer Karis went on to explain that the band themselves chose to delay the release of their self-titled album after the label made several changes to the mixes and track listing.
"It was down to us that our album didn't come out months ago," she admitted. "It was ready to go, but we was listening to it and realised the label had changed a few mixes, a few structures and even taken off a few songs."
The band are now preparing for the release of their new single 'Slip', set to be released to tie in with the launch of their first album.
"'Slip' now feels like a comeback, even though we've only been around for a year," they added.
