If the cancellation of The X Factor was the end of an era, then Little Mix's latest announcement marks the end of our youth, because we're suddenly feeling very old.

Despite the surprise departure of Jesy Nelson at the end of 2020, Little Mix have spent the last few months going from strength to strength, as both a pop group and individuals.

Now, to mark an impressive 10 years since the band was formed on The X Factor, Little Mix are releasing a brand new album – and there's a twist involved, too.

Marking their anniversary on Instagram yesterday (August 19), Little Mix – AKA Jade Thirlwall, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, and Perrie Edwards – announced the impending arrival of Between Us, a collection of some of the girls' greatest hits and exciting new material.

"We are so excited about this album. It includes all our hits, as well as some brand new songs we can't wait for you to hear," they said, alongside the album artwork reveal.

"We can't thank you all enough for your support over the last ten years... this album is for each and every one of you who's listened to our music, bought an album or sung your heart out at one of our shows. We wouldn't be here releasing this album if it wasn't for you".

The album will be released on November 12, with Amazon having an exclusive vinyl edition available to pre-order now for £26.99.

Little Mix also announced that they would be releasing three separate editions of the album, each one curated by Jade, Leigh-Anne, and Perrie individually.

"We're each also releasing our own version of the album, that include some of our fave songs individually," they teased. "Can you guess who picked what!?"

Meanwhile, former Little Mix member Jesy Nelson recently teased her debut as a solo artist. "For me, this is the music that I've always wanted to make," the singer said on Instagram just last week.

Alongside footage of herself recording new music, she wrote: "I don't think that anyone's gonna expect this. This is the new chapter for me. If you genuinely believe something enough and you want it to happen, you can make it happen. You can manifest it."

Between Us is available to pre-order now, and will release on November 12, 2021.
