When Little Mix said they were previewing a 30-second snippet of their new single ‘Wings’ on Alan Carr: Chatty Man tonight, I don’t think I was alone in expecting something like a video preview or a focussed ‘segment’ of sorts.
Alas, it was just the music the girls walked down the steps to when they made their entrance.
Not a lot could be gathered from it, what with all the talking and audience applause (damn their popularity!), but the good news is that, after all the inside whispers that it’s an amazing proper debut, it does indeed sound like an amazing proper debut.
Irresistibly catchy and packed with lyrics that gleefully tread the line between inspirational and cliché, its full-length premiere can’t come soon enough.
It’s out on July 22, so don’t expect to be kept waiting too much longer. But the good news is that we could actually have an X Factor-winning act with longevity on our hands.
Watch the show on 4OD to hear it for yourself (skip to the 4-minute mark).
