Little Mix fans know the girls have something new in store for us, but is it a song, a whole album or what!?
Perrie Edwards, Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock have been dropping little hints at new music over the past few months, as Little Mix mark their new chapter as a trio following bandmate Jesy Nelson’s exit.
The girls only released sixth album ‘Confetti’ in November, but already they’re working on something new.
Little Mix released 'Confetti' as a single of its own in April, with Saweetie making a special feature and an incredible video to go with it.
But it looks like there's more newness on the way from Little Mix – here's what we know so far about potential new music...
The girls are reportedly set to release a song with Anne-Marie for the 'Our Song' artist's new album 'Therapy' which is set for release in July.
This comes after Anne-Marie told Capital Breakfast with Roman Kemp back in 2019 that she'd "of course" love to collaborate with Little Mix, and it seems all our dreams are coming true!
However, the collaboration has been put on hold for now after a crew member tested positive for Covid-19.
According to tabloids, their plans to shoot a music video has had to be postponed but they're set to reschedule soon!
After Little Mix won British Group at the BRITs, Leigh-Anne took to Instagram to seemingly tease some new song lyrics from the girls.
She wrote alongside the 'ssh' emoji: "'We walked through the fire, and as the flames got higher, it made us survivors, yeah it made us fighters...' WE DID IT! We've made HISTORY! Although this award isn't just for us it's for all of the other incredible girl bands that came before us! Thank you for paving the way for us."
It's not the first time the trio have had Mixers wondering about a brand new song, after Perrie posted an Insta caption that had us all putting our detective hats on.
Little Mix's Instagram account shared a post of Perrie posing in front of a very colourful rainbow background and penned the caption: "The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow," and fans were convinced they're lyrics from a new song!
This isn't out of character for the girls after they previously have been known to post glamorous snaps of themselves on Twitter, accompanied with lyrics from their songs such as ‘Holiday’ and ‘Move’, but the newest unknown lyrics has definitely sent fans into meltdown, with them begging for the new bop to be released!

Perrie confirmed during a chat with her former neighbour and baker Melanie Johnson at the start of February that Little Mix had “such a good bop” on the way – and it turned out to be 'Confetti' feat. Saweetie.
This is just proof the girls have been back in the studio getting creative – 'Confetti' was just the start.
@LittleMix’s Perrie confirmed that new music is coming very soon and the girls are going to start filming the music video in the next few weeks!

While it looks like a new song is on the way, it’s not known whether Little Mix have a new album coming this year.
However, the fact they releasing 'Confetti' as a single looks promising for yet another album from the trio.
There was a rumour circulating the girls would be re-releasing the ‘Confetti’ album without Jesy’s vocals, but the girls’ PR representative Simon Jones quickly shut that down, telling a fan account on Twitter: “This is not true. The band are not re-recording the Confetti album.”
Perrie, Leigh-Anne and Jade have stayed quiet on what they’ve got coming up, but as two out of the three of them are pregnant we'll let them off.
