Fifth Harmony’s New Era Is More ‘Hands On’ and Authentic

Fifth Harmony‘s new era begins with the release of their latest single “Down” featuring Gucci Mane, their first since the departure of Camila Cabello last December. The foursome — Lauren Jauregui, Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, and Dinah Jane — appear poised and excited to move on with more creative control in the studio.

“What’s cool about this new era is that we were way more hands on in the creative process, so you can hear that voice coming through way more authentically,” says Lauren Jauregui, signaling that the band’s sound is more their own than ever. “It’s very different in just the way that things are communicated and translated, which I think for us, is a huge step up in terms of artistry and maturity.

In addition to more control, Fifth Harmony is doing something they’ve never done before: voluntarily listening to their music more often.

“We listen to our music a lot,” says Normani Kordei.

Ally Brooke continued, “And that has not really happened before in the past. For the first time we’re listening to it over, and over, and over and not getting tired of it.”

While the pieces are there, the album isn’t yet complete and a release date is unknown, but are open to creating more new material to potentially be included.

“We also still have our door open. It’s creativity, so you never know when an idea is going to come or when you’re going to run into the right person that’s like, ‘Let’s get in the studio,'” says Jauregui. “And then you make magic. Art is so cool like that.”
