Jedward spent much of the first half of 2018 in Los Angeles recording their fourth studio record, the first since the concept album ‘Young Love’, which they released in 2012. The first album from the Dublin twins since they broke away and became independent artists in 2013, it follows on from the nine singles they’ve released since 2014 – including ‘Oh Hell No’, which featured in promotions for SYFY’s ‘Sharknado 3’, back in 2015.
Jedward are well-known for their close relationship with their fans, so it means they’ve had plenty of people eager to see them take that next step and releasing a full-blown album of songs they’ve written and produced themselves. But it’s a double-edged sword, as on the one hand it also means many are waiting impatiently, while on the other John and Edward are likely to want to make sure the album is as near to perfect as possible. They’ve teased fans with tidbits from the recording process, such as letting them know that the title track was being mastered, as well as suggesting how many tracks might be on the finished work, with “16 bangers in the bag” but possibly four more to be recorded.
They’ve also posted photos which appear to have been taken in a photography studio. Posed wearing several different outfits, the duo stand before the camera, stony-faced, not giving away anything.
So this morning it was with excitement that fans discovered Jedward have changed the artwork on their social media. Gone were the previous header and display picture, which had previously shown a photo of the twins themselves, to be replaced with a metallic and retro logo:
Unsurprisingly, fans loved the new look, and immediately started speculating that the new change might be significant:
Hey does this mean new music is coming soooon ?????

We certainly hope so! Jedward’s most recent release was the track ‘Oxygen’, back at the beginning of 2017. The song came out at the start of a very busy year for John and Edward, with long television commitments meaning they weren’t as available as previous years to work on their music. All this looks set to change now however, and we, as with the rest of their fans, are excitedly awaiting the next chapter in their story.
You can see the new artwork on Jedward’s social media, and be sure to check them out online on their official website, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, and YouTube. Stream and download their music on SoundCloud, Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, and Google Play.
