Last year, when Little Mix did that thing all our fave popstars do when they desert us for our American friends for a bit, they actually did pretty bloody well for themselves.Not only did they manage to recruit gazillions of new Mixers, but they only went and nabbed themselves a US Billboard chart record with the DNA album, didn't they?

So obvs the ladies are heading back across the pond this spring (after they've released the Sport Relief single over here, don'tchaknow?) with Salute...and they're already off to a bloody blinder of a start with Stand Down coming into US iTunes like a wrecking ball (smashing it, basically).

Ahead of their big tour with Demi Lovato and Salute's release later this year, the gals have chucked the album on iTunes for pre-order so US fans can get their ears around new tracks a bit early. Basically, they've already had These Four Walls, Nothing Feels Like You and See Me Now...and yesterday Stand Down found itself at number five on the chart.

GAH. This bodes well, doesn't it? Let's 'ave a listen.

WOOPAH. Get it, gurls.

What d'ya reckon? Excited for the girls to head over to the US? Comments please and a-thank you.
