The announcement comes a year after their former fourth member Jesy Nelson revealed that she would be exiting the group.

In December 2020, the 30-year-old spilled the news in an Instagram post, explaining that she had “the most incredible time” while in the group, but that it was now time to “embark on a new chapter.”

Her former bandmates at the time expressed that it was “an incredibly sad time for all of us be we are fully supportive of Jesy.”

In a bombshell interview with The Guardian in August, Nelson opened up about the struggles she faced while working alongside three other women — who she was often compared to.

“You’re always going to get compared; who they think looks better, who they think sings better. There’s always going to be one person people think is weaker,” she told the outlet. “It was never about my singing or dancing. It was about how I looked.”

After Nelson’s exit, the three-some went on to release their hit album Between Us. Pinnock also signed her own music deal earlier this year, and according to People, Thirwall is planning to set out for a solo career as well.

It is also possible that the “Black Magic” singers’ break could have something to do with their busy personal lives, as Pinnock and Edwards both recently welcomed children earlier this year.
