Fifth Harmony Confirm 2017 Album Sans Camila

Fifth Harmony fans can breathe a sigh of relief about the group’s near-term prospects following Camila Cabello‘s unexpected departure in December. A new album from the newly minted four-piece is scheduled for later this year, according to Billboard.

The group’s labels, Epic Records and Syco, exercised their option for a third LP, the first from 5H without Cabello, putting it on track for a 2017 release. Reps confirmed “Epic has in fact exercised their deal option with Fifth Harmony,” but didn’t offer up specifics about a timeline.

Camila is expected to drop her solo debut later this year as well. Just last week, remaining 5H members Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane and Lauren Jauregui appeared in the group’s first new promo photo as a foursome.
