Jade Thirlwall has teased her debut solo single via a voice notes uploaded to streaming services including Spotify, YouTube and Deezer.

Now going by mononymous moniker JADE, the Little Mix star follows in the footsteps of bandmates Leigh-Anne and Perrie as she becomes the last member of the group to release solo music.

JADE's debut single - its title and release date still to be announced - will sample Sandie Shaw's chart-topping Puppet On A String, which spent three weeks at Number 1 on its release in 1967.

In a voice note uploaded to Spotify, JADE explains: "Well basically, I've been trying to sample Puppet On A String for years. I had a session with [inaudible] years ago...and he did a session and was like 'do you remember when you used to try and sample Puppet On A String all the time?'

"I was like 'that's so random that you remember that about me, I mustn't have let it go.' I was like 'oh, well maybe we should do it."

In a Deezer teaser, Jade commments: "I just love the idea of people listening and going 'What the f*ck?'"

In another clip posted to YouTube, Jade says: "It should feel really Frankensteined, but in a really beautiful way."

JADE also shared a screenshot of a Spotify playlist including Puppet On A String to her Instagram Story, further hinting at a sample of the winning 1967 Eurovision entry.
