Little Mix are still "learning to adapt" as a trio as they release new single Confetti

The group open up about their new single Confetti - their first since the departure of Jesy Nelson.

Little Mix have opened up about their new single Confetti - the group's first release since the departure of Jesy Nelson. 

The trio are releasing a reworked version of the title track of their current album - now featuring US rapper Saweetie - on April 30. It follows Sweet Melody, which hit Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart in January.

Jesy filmed the Sweet Melody music video but left the group just weeks before it hit Number 1 to focus on her mental health.

"It’s still all systems go in Little Mix world," Jade Thirlwall said in an interview with EUPHORIA. "It’s just learning to adapt. I think it’s quite exciting.

"And we got off to a good start as a three by having our No. 1 single in the UK. That was like, ‘Oh wow, this is a good sign, good omen, that this year is going to be good for us.’"

Similar to Sweet Melody, Confetti is already enjoying success on TikTok with the #DROPLIKECONFETTI trend. Perrie Edwards says the group enjoys being on the platform over other social media outlets which they believe have become "toxic". "I just think it’s a really positive platform," Perrie said of TikTok. "And I think everyone goes on it to have fun and everyone has a laugh." 

As for new Little Mix music, Perrie teased that they are "in the studio at the moment doing different collab ideas, adding: "Because we’ve just launched Confetti, it’s nice to experiment with different artists at the moment. I think we’re really into that at the minute, just featuring or jumping on someone’s track. I think it’s nice to have that little bridge after you’ve released an album to switch things up a little bit."
