Hot off the heels of their spellbinding new single “Black Magic,” which debuted at No. 1 in the UK today, the world’s biggest girl group Little Mix proudly announce their incredible new album, Get Weird, to be released globally on Friday, November 6, with the pre-order available August 14. From throwback vibes to ultra-modern production Get Weird encompasses the past, the present and the future of girl band pop.
The band – Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirwall – have always contributed to the songwriting process, but this time around they’ve upped their game, working with a handpicked selection of pop’s great and good, from Ed Drewett (Olly Murs, One Direction) and Maegan Cottone (Britney Spears, Demi Lovato) to collaborators who are artists in their own right, like Jess Glynne and Jessie J.
The girls describe Get Weird as “a celebration of being unique and not holding back,” which is most evident in “Weird People” – a song which finds them embracing their “inner weirdness.” Other stand-out tracks include future smash “Love Me Like You,” “Secret Love Song”and “Lightning,” which has been described by the band as a sister to 2012’s massive single “DNA.” Additionally, deluxe track “I Won’t” represents an important moment of self-discovery for the band as they realize “as long we’ve got each other that’s all we need.”
