The 'She Makes Me Wanna' stars say there latest record is set to contain "throwback 90s new jack swing/R&B influenced music."

JLS have confessed that they are attempting to push musical boundaries on their new album and are recording with a team of new writers and producers.

The 'Take A Chance On Me' singers revealed that they are blending a series of genres in an attempt to "further" their sound.

Speaking to the Daily Star, Oritse Williams said: "We've been in America working with new producers and writers – new to us but not new to the scene, like Rodney Jerkins.

"We're making a lot of throwback 90s new jack swing/R&B-influenced music. We're furthering our sound in that way."

The singer also revealed that the band have been working with Babyface as well as Rihanna producer, Bangladesh.

"We also worked with Babyface, which was a dream come true, and a guy called Bangladesh, who has done a lot of incredible hip-hop tracks. It's always good to push boundaries. That's been exciting," he added.

The follow up to 2011's 'Jukebox' is expected to be released later this year and the band were also recently confirmed to appear at the Queen's Diamond Jubilee concert this summer.

Meanwhile, JLS will head out on their '4th Dimension' UK tour on the 14th March with a show at Liverpool's Echo Arena.
