Glory Days, Little Mix

Little Mix’s newest album leaves a lasting impression with a heavy dose of sass and sexiness. 

The British pop girl band released Glory Days Nov. 18, debuting at No. 1 on the U.K. charts.

Glory Days features the same pop, feel-good sound as the group’s past albums, but this one is its most adult. The album centers on love in both a traditional and nontraditional way.

The members of Little Mix have taken their own experiences and channeled them into 17 songs that feature high notes, sweet harmonies and a ton of confidence and girl power.

The first single released on Glory Days was “Shout Out to My Ex.” Little Mix put a spin on the classic breakup song but added a positive upbeat twist.

“Shout Out to My Ex” received a heavy amount of attention for the lines that appear to be about band member Perrie Edward’s ex-fiance Zayn Malik and their very public breakup.

While staying fun and playful, the song reveals how people can grow from a breakup. This first track on the album sets the tone for the songs to follow.

With Glory Days, fans get a peak at the naughty side of Little Mix with not much holding back, a step up from some of the more “bubble gum” pop from previous albums.

Tracks “Down and Dirty” and “Private Show” reveal a much older and provocative feel than past albums. Lyrics include “Under the sheets, let me love you so good. If you want to touch, then baby you should.”

“Oops” performed with Charlie Puth reveals a ’50s doo-wop sound that is often a part of Little Mix albums.

The lyrics and melodies are definitely a hit, but what gives Glory Days the Little Mix signature is the wide range of vocals from the girls. Each song makes best use of each member’s voice.

Glory Days is an album that everyone can blast on their stereos at some point. It is empowering and embraces the strength that comes from different experiences in love.

While this is the perfect album to dance to at a sleepover with friends, Little Mix has definitely graduated to an older sound that fits the group.
