Little Mix have premiered their latest single, Move, on BBC Radio 1.

The track is the girl group's lead single from their upcoming second studio album.

Jade Thirlwall and Perrie Edwards appeared on Nick Grimshaw's BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show to talk about the release.

Perrie Edwards said: "This is a big deal for us. We've worked on our album for so long now.

I would personally say the new album is a step up. It's more R&B and mature. It's just cooler.

"We're very proud of it (Move)... you never know what people are going to think do you?"

Edwards added that her and Jade still get nervous during their bigger shows.

The 2011 X Factor winners have been working on the follow-up to 2012's DNA, with the album expected to be released in November.

The girls, who performed at Radio 1's Big Weekend in Londonderry in May, were asked about how they wrote the song.

Jade said: "This one was quite interesting.... We started with sounds. Just making loads of little quirky noises... and just put the song together really.

"We were just 'vibing' off each other. It was a bit weird actually, but we are a bit weird anyway."

The band announced details of the new single on a live Ustream chat last week.

However, some fans complained that the webcam didn't work, the band apologised for the technical difficulties.

Jade tweeted: "Sorry you're upset Mixers, it's coming it's coming :( Love you!"

During the stream Jesy Nelson said: "I would personally say the new album is a step up. It's more R&B and mature. It's just cooler," she said.

"There are more vocal harmonies and I think everyone has pushed their vocals this year."

Little Mix's new single, Move, will be released on 3 November.
