Little Mix Working on New Album
Little Mix have sent fans into a frenzy by confirming they are working on their upcoming fifth album – and they vowed it’s going to be a “dream”.
Little Mix have confirmed they are working on a new album.
The ‘Shout Out To My Ex’ group – made up of Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall – have announced plans for their fifth record, which will be the follow-up to their 2016 release ‘Glory Days’.
Revealing the exciting news on Twitter, the band said: “It’s official… #LM5 is actually in the works.. We’re going to be patiently waiting for this one, it’s going to be an absolute dream!”
Fans have been sent into a frenzy over the announcement, with one urging them not to “rush it”, while another follower already has high expectations for the upcoming LP.
They tweeted: “I AM SO EXCITED! The girls always go above and beyond when it comes to working on albums. I cannot wait to hear the new sound!”
The band had previously hinted at their big plans, revealing that the record would be released later this year.
Leigh-Anne teased: “We have the new album coming out this year which is really exciting.”
Meanwhile, Raye – who has penned hits for the likes of Jonas Blue (‘By Your Side’) and Jax Jones (‘You Don’t Know Me’) – actually accidentally ruined the surprise back in January.
Speaking to the Daily Star, she was discussing her upcoming songwriting work and said: “The Little Mix album, I’ve been writing for that.”
Earlier this month, Little Mix won three awards at the inaugural Global Awards – Best Group, British Artist or Group and Best Song for ‘Power’ – and Jade used their platform to address their critics.
She said: “It’s obviously quite hard for women in the music industry, its also hard for girl groups.
“We are women, we’ll dress how we want to dress, if we want to do a twerk, we’ll do a twerk!
“We will always encourage our fans, especially our female fans, to be themselves and do whatever they want to do with our music, so thank you very much!”
