Little Mix will perform their brand new single, Shout Out to My Ex, on The X Factor results show this weekend it has been announced.
Following the performance, Shout Out to My Ex will be released worldwide to stream and download. The track is written by Little Mix, Camille Purcell, Iain James and Electric and produced by Electric.
Shout Out to My Ex is described as ‘the epitome of the word anthem. An empowering, in your face, break up song, with a killer chorus and bold lyrics’. The song features the lyrics:
“Shout out to my ex, you’re really quite the man. You made my heart break and that made me who I am.”
The single is the first to be lifted from the group’s upcoming fourth album, which is due for release this November.
Jade says: “Shout Out To My Ex is a song that we’re sure loads of people can relate to. It’s all about moving on after a relationship ends to bigger and better things, and leaving the past where it should be.”
Perrie adds: “We’re really proud and excited about our new album and can’t wait to share the new music with everyone. Shout Out To My Ex was unanimously our favourite choice for the first single. It’s the perfect taster for what is to come!”
Little Mix’s third album Get Weird was released last year and has sold over 1.5 million copies worldwide.
