Jade Thirlwall, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Perrie Edwards and Jesy Nelson are back to their best as Little Mix release new album 'LM5'.
Little Mix have been confirmed as performers at the #CapitalJBB in December and now they're about to release their brand new album 'LM5' and we literally can't wait.
After a fake album tracklist leaked recently which claimed that Little Mix were set to collab with Ariana Grande, the ladies have released all the details we could ever want, including tour dates and more.
Here's everything you need to know about 'LM5'...
Just a few days after the release of lead single 'Woman Like Me', Little Mix dropped the news that 'LM5' will be released on 16th November 2018.
Leigh-Anne had earlier discussed the band's plans for 2018 and she spilled ALL the beans when she revealed that an album will be released this year!
After months of speculation, Little Mix finally announced their album title in October, saying "We love how you’ve named each of our eras over the years. So we’ve decided to call our next album... 'LM5'.
So it turns out that it's all because of you guys - look how much power you truly have!
When Little Mix started their first ever Instagram live broadcast, we couldn't help but ask the girls a question about the new album... and they answered!
Little Mix have released three different album covers for 'LM5' across the starndard, deluxe and super deluxe versions of the album. Got a favourite?

There are four collabs on Little Mix\s brand new album 'LM5'. We've already heard the Cheat Codes collab 'Only You' and the lead single 'Woman Like You' featured Nicki Minaj, however the other two are songs we're super excited to hear.
The first is a collab with Sharaya J on a song called 'Strip', which Little Mix teased via a clip from the music video and it sounds like an absolute bop.
We’ve sharing these amazing women’s stories & we have a surprise We invited them to be part of our #Strip music video cos this song is about empowering people to be who they are.

The other is a song called 'More Than Words', which features Little Mix's long-time friend and songwriter Kamille. Whilst she does feature on that song, Kamille also helped write seven others on 'LM5' - not bad eh!
Little Mix also teased 'More Than Words' by sharing a clip from the music video on Twitter which showed them sitting naked together with various negative words which they've been labelled as over the years written on their bodies.
we’ve made songs to empower women, songs about broken hearts, songs about shitty exes...but this is a song about us. @LittleMix @Timbaland #MoreThanWords vid drops midnight.— Kamille (@KamilleXX) November 15, 2018

During an exclusive interview with our very own Will Manning in the Global Awards' winners room, Leigh-Anne revealed, "Ed Sheeran has written for us... we think, but we don't know the specifics" before Perrie adds, they "won't know anything until... next week."
Well we now know that they were in fact talking about lead single 'Woman Like Me', which was actually written by Ed Sheeran and Jess Glynne!
Check out Jess revealing all in a chat with The Official Vodafone Big Top 40 recently...
After announcing the album details, Little Mix quickly followed up with the details of an exciting 'LM5 Tour' which will see them perform arena shows across the UK.
If we controlled the world, we'd make everyone watch this all day, every day...
