Playing Little Mix Explains 'Get Weird' Album Title, Talks One Direction Hiatus: 'They Need a Break'

The girls of Little Mix are truly embracing their weird side.

"We want to bring out the inner weirdness in everyone," Jade Thirlwall tells ET as the UK girl group celebrates their third studio album, appropriately titled Get Weird.

"We're all equally as weird as each other," Perrie Edwards chimes in. "We just have fun. Don't we, girls?"

Featuring the singles "Black Magic" and "Love Me Like You," Get Weird has already been dubbed the group's "favorite album ever."

"We had a lot of fun when we wrote this album," says Edwards. "We've been writing it for a year. So we took a bit big of a time out. We just had such a laugh in the studio and [we're] very proud of ourselves. [The album is] very fun, very colorful, very pop."

"There's ballads, there's brilliant pop songs, there's a bit of R&B in there," adds Thirlwall. "There's something for everyone."

Singers Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jesy Nelson round out the quartet, which was formed in 2011 during the eighth season of The X Factor UK. The girls went on to win the competition, becoming close with season seven X Factor alums One Direction during their time on the series. Naturally, we had to find out whether the girls had any intel on 1D's upcoming hiatus -- and whether they'll be back.

"You know what, they need a break," says Edwards. "How hard they work and how successful they are -- they just need a minute, but I think no matter what happens with them, they will always be successful because they're good boys. They deserve it."

"I reckon they might do their own things for a little bit," Nelson speculates.

"But how amazing to know that they're a phenomenon and to be like, 'Boys - we've done well, haven't we? Let's have a break,'" says Pinnock. "That's just an incredible thing to be able to say!"

Little Mix says they've got no plans to take a hiatus of their own anytime soon, but they would like to plot a tropical vacation in the near future.

"I just miss these girls so much if I'm away for just a couple of days, it just feels weird," says Pinnock, with Edwards jumping in: "A Little Mix holiday would be lovely, wouldn't it?"

"We'll run away to the circus together!" teases Pinnock.

But first, the girls are busy promoting Get Weird and planning Nelson's upcoming wedding to Rixton's Jake Roche. Get the scoop on all the wedding plans and Edwards' single and fabulous life after her split from Zayn Malik in the video below.
