JLS announce first new single in eight years ahead of comeback tour
JLS are to drop their first single in eight years this September.
JLS – made up of Aston Merrygold, Oritsé Williams, Marvin Humes and JB Gill – rose to fame on Series 5 of The X Factor in 2008.
After six years together, they went on a break in 2013 but are now reuniting for their huge comeback tour with tickets on sale now.
Alongside the tour dates, the group are also recording new music after signing a new record deal with BMG.
Their first single, Eternal Love, will drop on Friday 3 September and is available to pre-order and pre-save here.
Oritse Williams previously told The Sun newspaper: “We’re putting together an album and a couple of singles. It feels like the time is right.
“And whatever this next chapter for us brings, JLS chapter two is very exciting. We get to be musicians and experiment in the studio and figure out what our sound is, because we don’t know what the JLS sound is in 2021.”
Anton added: “It’s good. The album is ready. It’s done. We’ve been writing hard and recording hard so we’ve got our stuff. It’ll definitely be this year.
“We need new music out this year. We need fresh stuff to tour.”
And while there’s currently no date for an album release, Oritse assured fans: “We’re here to stay. We’re back. This is a comeback, this isn’t just reuniting.”
After delays due to the pandemic, the group will be performing across the UK and Ireland later this year with tickets on sale here.
