Little Mix will offer their 'Salute' aka their new album on Feb. 4. The ladies admit they've gone down a darker route, both stylistically and musically, with the album.

While as a collective, Little Mix are darker, group member Jade Thirwall has gone lighter, at least with her locks. She is now a honey blonde.

Perrie Edwards acknowledged the shift in an interview with the Winter 2014 issue of Fault, saying, "I think we’re just maturing. Obviously, our style is evolving, our music is evolving and everything is moving slowly together. We’re not wearing hot pants, gyrating on the floor. We’re just becoming a bit more classy, a bit more grown up. We’re just doing our own thing."

They sure are!

Edwards, the fiancée of One Direction's Zayn Malik, said that their mentor Simon Cowell remains involvedbut he trust the ladies with their choices. She revealed,"It’s quite nice to know that everyone in our team has trust in us to pull out something good, with our fashion, with our hair and makeup. They never tell us what we have to do or the songs we have to write. We control everything which is important to us."

Little Mix know what they are doing.
