London: Singer Perrie Edwards is to sing about her split from singer Zayn Malik on British group Little Mix's new album.
The 23-year-old was dumped by the One Direction star last summer and Edwards and her bandmates Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall have recorded songs about their individual heartbreak for their forthcoming LP, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
"I think it's always easier to write about your experiences through music because more people can relate to them anyway," Nelson told The Sun newspaper.
"It is a lot more mature, this album. There's a lot of things that have been said that perhaps nobody has heard yet, if you know what I mean," she added.
Quizzed on whether Little Mix fans will know who is being sung about on each song, Nelson said "all the songs are very relatable to girls, and our fan base in general".
But it won't be an album of doom and gloom, as they group insisted their upcoming fourth studio record is "very positive".
