Union J have said their second album is to take more of an acoustic direction than their first.
The 'X Factor' formed boy band released their self-titled first record in 2013 after they came in fourth place on the talent show, but the youngest member of the group, George Shelley, claims they're going to have more of an input in the sophomore release.
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz prior to their live set at M&M's World in London's Leicester Square on Thursday March 6, he said: "We've been working on some new stuff and we're really enjoying it, it's very different. It's a lot more acoustic. It's more like folk and country music than before.
"We're happy we're getting to choose what we want to put out there as before we were kind of told what we were meant to be doing."
George and his bandmates - Josh Cuthbert, Jaymi Hensley and Jamie 'JJ' Hamblett - performed tracks including 'Loving You Is Easy' and 'Carry You' at the store to celebrate the launch of the new personalised M&M printer, and Jaymi said he hopes their new music will show how much they've grown once it's released.
He said: "We're a bit older now, you know? And it's been a year since 'X Factor' so we want to show that we've matured and I think that will come across in our new stuff."
The 24-year-old 'Carry You' hitmaker also revealed that he thinks their new single could be a contender for a Number One in Britain.
He added: "We've worked really hard on it and we're really happy with it so hopefully people will like it too."
