Fifth Harmony is opening up about their new album.
"It's very different," Dinah Jane told ET's Katie Krause. "From our past album, Reflection, we kind of took the time for ourselves throughout that past year and we incorporated our experiences and what we've gone through -- heartbreak, love, everything. ... So we're sharing that with this album."
The X Factor alums described 7/27, due out May 20, as "diverse," "eclectic," "vulnerable," "mature" and "ethnic."
Among the hitmakers contributing to the girls' sophomore full-length are Max Martin and Jack Antonoff.
"We have an amazing relationship with the songwriters and the producers, so even outside of the studio we get the opportunity to really hone in on what we wanna talk about," said Normani Kordei. "They kinda know some of the things that go on in our day to day lives, as well."
"They definitely write and make the records with us and our personalities in mind," Camila Cabello chimed in.
ET caught up with the girl group in Compton, California on Monday, where they sat down to chat with at-risk youth through Urban Fitness 911.
"It was amazing," Ally Brooke gushed. "I mean, being able to share our story and being able to articulate what we’ve been through, and answer real, honest questions in the most authentic way possible was amazing. We just hope these kids are inspired afterwards to know that it doesn’t matter where you come from, just like all of us. You can go for your dreams, you can reach for your dreams. There are gonna be obstacles, but you can do it. Don’t let anything hold you back."
