Why Bardot’s Belinda Chapple and Katie Underwood have reunited

Earlier this week, original Bardot members Belinda Chapple and Katie Underwood reunited to become a pop duo called Ka’Bel.

Speaking to Stellar on Friday, the talented duo revealed that they were just as surprised as fans were when they decided to head back into the studio.

‘My world now is interior design,’ Belinda, 46, told the publication.

‘So when I got into the cab on the way to the recording studio, I was just a little bit frightened. I was like, what am I doing? But once I started singing, I remembered how much I love doing this,’ she added.

Meanwhile, Katie, 45, who is now a mum to twin girls, said her biggest inspiration has been growing older and learning to love her craft even more.

‘One of the wonderful things about getting older is that as each year passes, you care a little less about what anyone else thinks about what you’re doing. So now to do this? It really is the icing on the cake,’ she said.

‘We both love the same style of music and I think our voices blend really well,’ Katie continued.

Their comments come after the girls confirmed the release of their comeback single on Monday.  

‘Katie and I are so excited to share with you that after all these years we have recently been back in the studio recording a brand new tune, Broken Hearted,’ Belinda wrote on Instagram at the time.

‘Broken Hearted celebrates all that’s happened in the last two decades: learning, surviving, living and loving!’

The blonde beauty also shared a picture of single’s artwork: a combined photo of the two singers’ faces.

‘Our Bardot family has been incredibly loyal over the last 20 years showing true dedication, love and support. And this is for you. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did creating it,’ she added. 

Belinda also let fans know the song will drop on October 15. 

Last week, Belinda shared a short video on Instagram, giving fans sneak peek at the instrumentals for the new track.

This news comes two months after Belinda and Katie’s former bandmate Sophie Monk shut down the idea of a proper Bardot reunion.  

‘I think we’ve all grown up very differently,’ she told News.com.au in July.

‘It’s a bit like school, when you leave high school and you all kind of go your separate ways. So yeah, I don’t know. I think we’ve just all kind of moved on.’

The 40-year-old also revealed she’d been recording music again in a bid to restart her solo career. 

‘I think I’m going to release a song in a month or so, but I’m worried I might disappoint people, because you’d kind of expect it’s going to be real pop, nightclubby,’ she said.

‘It’s not that at all. It’s more a jazz vibe, which is because I came from classical music and jazz.’

Bardot was active from 2000 to 2002, before Sophie left to start a solo career.
