Fifth Harmony announces new album date

The group announced the album on The Tonight Show

Following last month’s release of their new single “Down,” Fifth Harmony announces their highly-anticipated third album, Fifth Harmony, is set for release on August 25th on Syco/Epic Records. The worldwide multi-platinum group set off a social media frenzy Monday night (July 24th) when they officially announced the album after their debut performance on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.

Working with some long time partners, new powerhouse producers and DJs such as The Stereotypes, Skrillex, Poo Bear, Monsters and Strangerz, Ester Dean, Ammo & Dallas K, Dreamlab, Harmony Samuels, Tommy Brown and Sebastian Kole, Fifth Harmony promises an album packed with energy, passion, and show-stopping vocals. With most of the album co-written by Ally, Dinah, Lauren and Normani, listeners will get a sense of the girls’ individuality as artists, in addition to showcasing the confident and empowering collective voice of Fifth Harmony that fans know and love.

“Down,” the lead single from the album released June 2nd, was the group’s fastest rising single ever on iTunes, hitting number two within moments of release. The track marked Fifth Harmony’s best sales debut and was the #1 most added song at both Top 40 and Rhythmic Radio. The group continued to give fans a preview of what to expect on Fifth Harmony when they performed “Down” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night. The track is still buzzing with critical acclaim with Headline Planet asserting, “‘Down’ absolutely boasts rhythmic credibility. Lauren Jauregui, Dinah Jane, Normani Kordei and Ally Brooke deliver their lines with confidence. Effortlessly sexy and unquestionably infectious.” Rolling Stone added the song is “smooth” and “cruise-ready” and Vibe firmly concluded: “Fifth Harmony and Gucci Mane hold things ‘Down.’”
