Los Angeles, CA (August 14, 2015) – Hot on the heels of their spellbinding new single “Black Magic,”which has captured the No. 1 spot in the UK for 3 straight weeks, the world’s biggest girl group Little Mix’s new album ‘Get Weird’ is officially available for pre-order today HERE. The album will be released globally on Friday, November 6 and features throwback vibes to ultra-modern production, encompassing the past, the present and the future of girl band pop.
The band – Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirwall – have always contributed to the songwriting process, but this time around they’ve upped their game, working with a handpicked selection of pop’s great and good, from Ed Drewett (Olly Murs, One Direction) and Maegan Cottone (Britney Spears, Demi Lovato) to collaborators who are artists in their own right, like Jess Glynne and Jessie J.
The girls describe ‘Get Weird’ as “a celebration of being unique and not holding back,” which is most evident in “Weird People” – a song which finds them embracing their “inner weirdness.” Other stand-out tracks include future smash “Love Me Like You,” “Secret Love Song” and “Lightning,” which has been described by the band as a sister to 2012’s massive single “DNA.” Additionally, deluxe track “I Won’t”represents an important moment of self-discovery for the band as they realize “as long we’ve got each other that’s all we need.”
In just under a month, “Black Magic” has amassed airplay on over 130 Pop radio stations across the U.S. and has already reached over 25 Million in cumulative audience since release. The song has also hit #1 on the UK airplay chart for 6 weeks straight and has been certified platinum in Australia. Little Mix will debut “Black Magic” with a special performance on TEEN CHOICE 2015 live this Sunday, August 16, on FOX. The band is up for five Teen Choice Awards including Choice Music Breakout Artist. Little Mix will also perform on the Late Late Show with James Corden on August 17 and will celebrate their 4 year anniversary together as a band on August 19 with an outdoor concert on the Today Show on NBC.
