Well it's all be kickin' off in Little Mix land lately, hasn't it? Even though we haven't had a new single for a bit, the girls have been looking pretty perf at festivals all over the shop *and* there was the small matter of Perrie Edwards' engagement to One Direction's resident bad boy Zayn Malik. 'But where's this new bloody album?' we hear you cry. Well apparently it's on its way, 'cause the girls have been in LA 'laying down' some vocals for new tracks...and it all looks a bit exciting to say the least.

Yup - Leigh-Anne, Jesy, Perrie and Jade have been hard at work on the follow-up to DNA, which we're still a little bit addicted to if we're totally honest with ourselves. And thankfully it sounds like they're not sticking with the whole Korean language approach they recently adopted for Wings. Awoo.

Little Mix LA

The gals' latest video diary sees them in the studio in LA with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis - who've worked with everyone from Destiny's Child to the Spice Girls. Oh, and Perrie goes a bit cray cray touching actually everything in sight in case a certain Will Smith's been in contact with it on one of his many visits. Gah - what *would* Zayn say?

Check out the girls working on album numero deux below.

*Scream*

What d'ya reckon? Excited to hear the girls' new tunes? Comments please...
