The Saturdays originally intended not to release any material in 2010, "We finished [Wordshaker] and we'd come across some songs that we were really excited about.
The songs that we had found were so current, and we'd written a couple of songs ourselves, [so] we wanted to just get everything out now." The band confirmed that the album would not be a studio album and would in fact be an Extended play.
Their fourth studio album, Living for the Weekend (2013) debuted at number ten on 20 October 2013, becoming their fourth Top 10 album.
They were formed through Fascination Records, who gave them an instant record deal with the label as well as a sub-division of Polydor Records.
As soon as the contract was finalised, the band went on tour with Girls Aloud during their Tangled Up Tour.
Both "Up" and "Issues" found themselves gaining a certification of Silver by the British phonographic industry.
In March 2009 The Saturdays released a cover of Depeche Mode's "Just Can't Get Enough" for Comic Relief, the single was a success and charted at number-two on the UK Singles Chart and was also certificated Silver by the BPI. We're all different because we're just ourselves – and that's the way it should be." Whilst performing on their first headlining tour, The Work Tour, the group started to go back into the studio to record their second studio album in early March 2009, which would be due for release in late 2009.
"Up" was confirmed to be the second single from the album and first studio version of "Up" premiered on Popjustice on 17 July 2008 in the form of a short clip, after the group previously performed the song, when it was being recorded, live at various gigs in the United Kingdom.
