‘JLS 2.0’ IS AVAILABLE TO STREAM AND DOWNLOAD FROM DECEMBER 3RD
JLS have today announced the release of their brand new album ‘JLS 2.0’, the multi-award winning boy bands first body of work to be released in over 8 years. Due for release on December 3rd via BMG, ‘JLS 2.0’ is available for pre-order now.
The album features an all-star array of musical heavyweights with Steve Mac, Wayne Hector, TMS and Lost Boy all credited. Written, recorded and produced entirely in lockdown, as well as ‘JLS 2.0’ marking a new musical chapter and sound for the band, the record also makes nod to their beginnings as Steve Mac who produced their number one debut single ‘Beat Again’ teamed up with Ed Sheeran especially to write ‘Eternal Love’, the first single from the new album.
Speaking on the new album, JLS said: “Being back after so long has made us appreciate just how much we’ve missed singing and performing together. ‘JLS 2.0’ is a continuation of the feel good energy we’ve always been about. Music is and always will be in our DNA, the chemistry we have as a band is unique and we’re looking forward to our new chapter – JLS 2.0. It feels good to be back”.
For the first time ever, the album will also be available on limited edition coloured vinyl as well as limited edition coloured cassettes, poster CD and a deluxe CD with 3 brand new tracks. After an 8 year hiatus ‘’JLS 2.0’ signifies the return of one of the UK’s biggest and best selling British boy bands to date.
Since the band’s inception in 2007, JLS reinvented the wheel for the modern boyband and made their mark on British music through their inimitable soulful, RnB and pop influenced sound all underpinned by highly stylised choreography. Collectively JLS have amassed five Number One singles with their instantly recognisable chart hits ‘Beat Again’, ‘Everybody In Love’, ‘The Club Is Alive’, ‘Love You More’ and ‘She Makes Me Wanna’. They have sold over six million records and four multi-platinum albums and their self-titled debut went straight to number one and has since sold over a million copies in the UK.
JLS are two-time BRIT winners, having won Best British Breakthrough and Best British Single with ‘Beat Again’, which was also named the fastest selling debut single of 2009. As well as their huge commercial success and consistently dominating the pop charts, the band made a massive impact on RnB music with five MOBO Awards and three Urban Music Award wins highlighting the astronomic impact their music had in resonating across both pop and RnB realms.
