LITTLE Mix have set a date for the release of their new album.
Salute will hit the shelves on Monday, November 11, less than a year after the group’s debut LP came out.
The band, starring South Shields girls Jade Thirlwall and Perrie Edwards, have given fans a sneak peek of the album’s cover, showing them looking a lot more grown up than when they first found fame on the X Factor in 2011.
Their stint on the ITV talent show saw the band, also featuring Jesy Nelson and Leigh-Anne Pinnock, put together by judges, and they went on to make history by becoming the first group to win the title.
The girls achieved huge success with their debut album, DNA, even becoming the highest-charting girl band ever with a debut album in America, reaching No4. And Little Mix’s mums think Salute is going to be just as popular.
Jade’s mum, Norma Thirlwall, said: “I think the fans are going to be pleasantly surprised.
“The album is different, and it’s a lot more mature, but what I’ve heard is amazing, and I know the fans are going to love it.
“Every song could be a single, and the girls have written most of it themselves.
“It’s still got the message of being true to yourself, but it’s a lot more grown up.”
Perrie’s mum, Debbie Hogg, added: “I think the first album was fantastic, but they’ve really gone all out with the second one.
“They’ve written nearly every song, and they’ve completely put themselves into it.
“It’s got that positive message still, and it’s amazing. The fans will love it.”
