Jade Thirlwall has announced the release of her long-awaited debut single, ‘Angel of My Dreams’.

The singer, who memorably rose to superstardom as a member of Little Mix, one of the best-selling girl groups in history, will officially launch the track on Friday 19 July.

Written in LA alongside Steph Jones (Sabrina Carpenter’s ‘Espresso’), Pablo Bowman (Little Mix’s ‘Only You’) and Mike Sabath (Raye’s ‘Escapism’), ‘Angel of My Dreams’ is described as a “frenetically shapeshifting, gloriously OTT banger that explores her love/hate relationship” of the pop music industry.

In a statement, Jade said she didn’t want her first solo single to be “safe”: “That was really important to me. I’m setting the tone of who I am as an artist on my own.

“I want people to hear it and be like, ‘What the fuck is that song?’ My worst nightmare is for someone to hear my song and go, ‘That’s nice.'”

Jade added: “What I’m going for is a pop punch to the face. I want people to be like ‘oh my god, I didn’t expect that’ – but then want to listen to it again. […] I’m so proud of it and I can say that with chest. The fans have waited long enough so now we just want to give it to them”.

As a member of Little Mix, Jade earned widespread critical acclaim and 19 top 10 hits on the UK Singles Chart – including five number-ones with ‘Cannonball’, ‘Wings’, ‘Black Magic’, ‘Shout Out To My Ex’ and ‘Sweet Melody’.

They also attained a passionate LGBTQIA+ fanbase – particularly Jade, who has continuously used her platform to advocate for queer and marginalised voices. 

Following the announcement of Little Mix’s hiatus in 2022, Jade began collaborating with stars such as MNEK, Cirkut, Lostboy, RAYE, Lauren Aquilina and Dave Hamelin alongside Mike, Steph and Pablo.

‘Angel of My Dreams’ is expected to be included on her highly-anticipated debut solo album. Check out the teaser via her Instagram below!
