Little Mix describe new album as ‘different’ and a ‘progression’

The girl group are in the 'final stages' of recording their third album

Little Mix have confirmed work on their third album, describing it as a “progression” on their previous two efforts.

The pop group released their second album ‘Salute’ in 2013, following on from the 2012 debut.

Speaking to Maximum Pop recently, Little Mix described progress on their new record as being in the “final stages”.

The band’s Jade Thirlwall said: “I think we just wanted to do something different. I think that’s why it’s so long as well. We wanted to make a sound that was still us, but was changing a bit.” Leigh-Anne Pinnock added: “It’s all about progression, isn’t it? We just hope you guys love it as much as us.”

Meanwhile, Britney Spears is set to collaborate with Iggy Azalea and Little Mix on her new single. The track ‘Pretty Girls’ is to be produced by The Invisible Men, who helmed the Azalea hit ‘Fancy’, while Little Mix are listed as co-writers.

In 2013, Little Mix broke the Spice Girls’ US chart record with their debut album, ‘DNA’, entering the Billboard 200 chart at Number Four. It was the highest ever debut for an British female group, beating the Number Six position the Spice Girls achieved in 1997 with their debut album ‘Spice’.
