It’s in support of their upcoming sixth studio album ‘Confetti’, which was announced earlier this week and is available to pre-order from 9am on Friday, September 18 which gives fans access to presale tickets.

The group revealed the title and artwork to fans as well as the release date of November 6. It features singles ‘Break Up Song’ and ‘Holiday’, the former becoming their 15th top 10 single in the UK.

They were originally expected to go on a summer tour earlier this year which was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. It included stadium shows and a huge Hyde Park gig.

Meanwhile their support act for the tour was going to be the winner’s of their reality music competition ‘Little Mix: The Search’, which was due to air back in April but will now debut on BBC One on September 26.
