Have you been waiting for a new Little Mix album? It might be time to get excited!
The official Little Mix Instagram account has teased fans about an impending new album, posting a photo clearly designed to raise expectations.
The photo showed band members Jade Thirlwall and Leigh-Anne Pinnock gazing down at a phone.
The caption reads simply “#LM5 loading… ⏳”
Fans of the band responded with enthusiasm, taking to the comments to express their excitement.
“LeighAde slays my life omfg can’t wait for Lm5 xx😍😍😍💜💜💜💜💜,” one fan commented.
Another said, “MY EXCITEMENT HURTS😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍”
“Come on girls I cant waittt 😍👐😍,” said a third.
The band have been dogged by rumours of a split since their last album, Glory Days, came out in 2016.
Rumours that two of the band members, Jesy and Jade, were eyeing careers in acting left some fans afraid the band was done.
But Jesy squashed the rumours last month, in a response to a query on Instagram, saying: “Absolutely not. Until it comes from us I wouldn’t believe anything you read.”
Their producer, Digital Farm Animals (real name Nick Gale), also rubbished the rumours, confirming in an interview with The Metro that they were still working together.
“I’m in [the studio] with them at the moment, we’re working on a few projects. We’ve got some stuff we’re working on right now, nothing set in stone.”
He also poured cold water on the idea that the girls don’t get on – a classic rumour that seems to come up every time groups of women work together.
“The girls are amazing and the nicest people. It’s amazing, I haven’t worked with loads of girl bands but you hear stories about how people don’t get on, but Little Mix seem to be best mates, they do everything together.”
