Little Mix reveal their new album is coming in 2020 and open up about record label drama

Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock say the band are "back on track" after recent label woes.

Little Mix have opened about their new album and recent record label drama.

In an interview ahead of their performance at GRLS! Festival in Sao Paulo last week (March 8), Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall spoke about parting ways with Simon Cowell's Syco label in 2018 after feeling restricted in their creative output.

Speaking to PopLine about their last album LM5, Jade said: "We had a bit of a switch of labels... and that really f**ked us over. It was hard to put all our creativity out there exactly how we would have liked to have done. The LM5 album was very heaily on women's rights, what it feels like to be a woman [and] our experiences in the industry."

Jade and Leigh-Anne also revealed when fans can expect to hear their sixth studio album.

"We're in a place now where we're working on the new record with RCA, which is really exciting," Jade said. "We've really learnt to just stick to our guns and do what we believe in."

Leigh-Anne added: "We're definitely back on track with everything. We've got a new album coming, new single... We've actually done quite a lot of the album already. It's one of our favourites so far. 

"People hate that word 'soon'. Before summer. It's coming."

Little Mix's LM5 album peaked at Number 3 on the Official Albums Chart in November 2018 and featured the Number 2 hit Woman Like Me. View Little Mix's complete UK chart history so far.
