Jedward announce comeback on Lorraine
Speaking to host Christine Lampard, John said: “There are a lot of serious songs on our album.”
Edward added: “We recorded the music videos in Los Angeles and decided to be the directors for our own videos because we made four.”
Their first single from the new album is called Taste the Heat – and it’s out now.
Next month, the boys are planning to drop another single.
In addition, Jedward had planned to tour the UK later this year but unfortunately, it’s been postponed due to COVID.
John said: “The thing with music is that all live concerts have been cancelled so we have to reschedule our tour for 2021.
“That will be the year we get to see everyone on the road.
“We love travelling around the UK because there are so many quirky places where we get to stop along the way and get a snack or a cup of tea.”
Jedward in quarantine
Edward and John are currently quarantining at home in Dublin.
The boys had been staying in LA with their Celebrity Big Brother friend Tara Reid.
Now they’re back home, they’re trying to spend their time productively while self-isolating.
“We’re trying to stay creative and write songs,” John continued.
“It’s a weird situation to try and adapt to.
“We try and stay active and go out for walks. Some days you feel a little bit low and sometimes you feel healthy and other days you’re online to see what everyone’s saying.’

Although the twins are focusing on their music, they’re also looking to branch out into other sectors.
Edward explained: “We’re looking into doing more TV, so we’ve been contacting production companies and having meetings to pitch new TV formats.
“I feel like being a household name, it’s good to move into he future because we can’t always just be these teen pop stars.”
The brothers explained that they hope to launch a talkshow similar to James Corden’s Late Late Show.
“We’ll b coming to the ITV studios soon,” teased John.
