Right Little Mix, we\'re depending on you to save British pop – and we have every faith you\'ll be able to do so before Christmas.
With their new single \'Shout Out To My Ex\' premiering on October 16 and fourth studio album
out on November 18, Digital Spy sat down with Jesy, Perrie, Leigh-Anne and Jade to find out just what they\'ve got in store for us – and it sounds like we won\'t be disappointed.
"It literally sounds like nothing on the radio right now, which is so exciting," Jesy Nelson tells us. "I feel like everything sounds the same at the moment. Ours is very different. It\'s very honest, it\'s very sassy, and it\'s just a naughtier side of Little Mix, which I like."
"In the sense that we don\'t really give a shit and we just feel like it\'s about time people know the truth." (You can draw your own conclusions about who she\'s talking about.) "We love it as well because it\'s a song that every person can relate to. Everyone in the world has gone through heartbreak and a shitty experience, and when you hear this song, it doesn\'t make you feel sad, it makes you feel really good about yourself. It makes you think, \'Oh my god, I\'m so much better without this person.\' Every person needs that when they\'ve had a break-up. There\'s not many songs like that."
2. But don\'t assume \'Shout Out To My Ex\' is a reflection of what\'s to come
"I think it\'s completely different though," Leigh-Anne tells us. "The reason we love \'Shout Out To My Ex\' so much is because it is a statement. With a Little Mix album, it\'s always very versatile."
, the girls knew exactly what they wanted to do next.
album we knew what sound we wanted to go with straight away, and it just kind of happened really naturally," Jesy says. "We wrote some songs, we\'ve got some songs that were written for us and they just all fitted really well together. We just felt like there was no point in waiting around and we should just get it out." We couldn\'t agree more.
3. Little Mix\'s new album isn\'t just for teen girls, y\'know
"You want to keep that success or better it," Jade tells us. "
was huge, but I think we\'re really confident with this album. I feel it can relate to even more people than
did – like boys or women. We\'re branching out from our usual target audience."
Jesy adds: "It\'s way more mature. There are more dance-y songs – ones that will get played in clubs, which is nice for us. It\'s just a new era of Little Mix." We are so ready.
While Jade promises that Little Mix\'s fourth studio album will be packed with "killer hooks" and "brilliant pop songs", Leigh-Anne goes one further by naming the thing they\'re most proud of on the collection: "T
here\'s this one song that I think our vocals are just, like,
"The only way is up – we\'ve never really dipped. I feel like we\'ve kept this progression, but we\'re still striving for more," Leigh says. "Hopefully this will be the album where we just go BAM! and explode. It\'s everything we want in life."
5. So c\'mon then, who have they been working with?
The girls have teamed up with some old faves as well as some exciting global superstars for LM4. So Perrie, can you tell us who you\'ve been in the studio with? "Iain James has done a bit, who we worked with for \'Wings\' and \'DNA\'," she reveals. "MNEK has done some production on some stuff, and we absolutely love him. Charlie Puth has wrote us a song. And Meghan Trainor has wrote us a song. It\'s been wonderful!"

"Hopefully as well we\'re going to have some amazing features." Argh, you always tease us with this and never tell us who.
"Oh we can\'t tell you, darlin\'," she adds. Fingers crossed for that Nicki Minaj team-up…
