Little Mix ''didn't hold back'' with their new album.

The girl group - comprising of Leigh-Anne Pinnock, Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards and Jesy Nelson - are gearing up to release their third LP 'Get Weird' in November and have teased fans can expect a ''colourful'' selection of songs on the album as a contrast to their second record which they thought was ''quite dark'' in comparison.

Asked how their recent single 'Black Magic' compares to the rest of the album, Leigh-Anne said: ''It fits really well.

Perrie added: ''It's a very good introduction to what the album is. The album is so pop, so colourful, very personality-driven. I think 'Salute' was quite dark and a bit R&B whereas this is just full on pop excitement, like, we just absolutely love this album. We didn't hold back at all, we just went for it.''

The singers also explained they decided to name their third record 'Get Weird' because they consider themselves to be ''absolutely nuts'' so thought the title was appropriate.

Jesy joked to BANG Showbiz: ''We're absolutely nuts ourselves and so are our fans and we want to spread that across the world.''

However, 23-year-old Leigh-Anne explained the name has a deeper meaning as it's about embracing your quirks.

She added: ''And it's just about literally being who you are, being yourself and loving who you are as well and not being afraid to show that.''
