Little Mix have today announced that the debut single to be taken from their forthcoming second studio album is titled ‘Move’.
The announcement came this evening via a special YouTube live stream from the studio in which Jesy Nelson, Jade Thirwall, Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock answered fans questions and even gave a special a cappella performance of a new track from their album.
Speaking about the new single, which will have its first radio play on Monday morning on BBC Radio 1, Jesy said: “The song is about having the time of your life in the club and when boys are being really annoying and when they think they’re too cool to dance and you’re like ‘Get up and MOVE’… It’s about not being afraid to get up and dance”.
During the Q&A session one fan asked how the girls would describe the new album.
Jesy said: “I would pleasantly say the new album is a step up and it’s more R&B and more mature – it’s just cooler!”
Leigh-Anne added “More vocal harmonies, everyone has really pushed themselves. We’ve written more songs on this album than the last.”
The girls also performed a special a cappella version of a new song from their forthcoming second studio album. The track is called ‘Little Me’.
Jade explained: “We were all sitting down in the studio and we wanted to write a song about when you’re younger and what you wish you’d said to your younger self to make yourself more confident and not listen to the bullies or the haters”.
Lyrics include: “I’d tell her to speak up, tell her to shout out, talk a bit louder, be a bit prouder / tell her she’s beautiful, wonderful, everything she doesn’t see / You gotta speak up, you gotta shout out and know that right here right now you can be beautiful, wonderful, anything you wanna be… Little me!”
Move will receive its first radio play on BBC Radio 1’s Breakfast show on Monday (September 23) morning with Nick Grimshaw. The girls will also be in the studio to introduce their new single.
