Building on the monumental success of their debut single "Miss Movin' On", Fifth Harmony (5H) are now gearing up to release their first EP, Better Together [Epic Records/Syco Music], through all physical and digital outlets on October 22, 2013. The five-song collection illuminates every shining side of America's only teen pop female vocal group--from upbeat anthems to elegant heartfelt melodies.

The iTunes pre-order went live on Monday, September 9th at midnight (12am EST). Link: http://smarturl.it/bettertogether and includes a special bonus track of "Me & My Girls." Across Better Together, each voice takes center stage, delivering uncontainable energy on tracks like "Don't Wanna Dance Alone" and making way for tangible emotion on "Who Are You" and "Leave My Heart Out of This". However, the girls have a lot more music in store as well.

The quintet is readying a special acoustic and Spanish version of the standout "Better Together" EP, both of which will be available later this fall.

Fifth Harmony has quickly become one of the most-talked about acts in pop music. After debuting "Miss Movin' On" live on The Today Show, the program received more tweets about this concert than any other performance all summer. The music video has surpassed 8 million views mark on YouTube/VEVO, while the song reached #34 on Top 40 Radio, and is continuing to gain steam. They've been handpicked to be a part of Disney's "Next Big Thing" Campaign, MTV & Pop Tarts "Crazy Good VMA Concert", and a performance on AllAccess.MTV.com prior to their VMA red carpet debut. Cumulatively, they have 70 million total YouTube views, nearly half a million Facebook "likes", and over 750,000 Twitter followers.

Right now, hot off their 22 city #HarmonizeAmerica mall tour, you can catch Fifth Harmony supporting Cher Lloyd on her "I Wish Tour".

There's no harmony sweeter than Fifth Harmony. Get together with them soon.

It is rather unique to release a 5 track EP. Is this just Epic gently testing the water before committing to a full blown album release?

Yes I still think they're trying to find out what sound will suit them overall for the Album. Take a listen to the tracks I've posted...

Miss Movin' On is still climbing Radio, as for the past month it has been on testing so it's only just beginning to take off. The peak on Billboard has been 76 so far...

The EP is just being used to build their fanbase more and for promotional purposes.i talked to Scott (Vice President of Epic) through a dm on twitter and he said they have a master plan. After the Cher tour the are going back into the studio to record Spanish and acoustic versions of the EP to be released later this fall. Album is expected around December and a huge tour (most likely with Demi) to be announced in December/Early January. They want to give the girls a legit shot at a Top 3 debut with their album and just need a little more time. The EP is expected to debut Top 5 on Billboard once it debuts. In the meantime they are lining up TV promotional appearance including Ellen as well as some gigs in Canada. A new single will be released soon which will either be "Who Are You" or "Better Together". Scott said they are leaning towards "Better Together" at the moment. MMO is still rising on radio airplay and being played by 90% of the top 20 pop stations in the US including regular rotation now on Z100 NY (the #1 ranked pop station). KIIS FM (the #2 pop station) is still playing it 2-3 daily but that's usually overnight. It's picking up steam though and is gaining a lot of adds each week. MMO has been added to 87 of the 255 pop stations in the US so far. So far it's peak debut on the Billboard Hot 100 is #76 but once it goes into the 20's of airplay causing it to rise on iTunes there should be a new peak. The fanbase continues to grow and the girls continue to receive praise from heavyweights in the industry with the latest 2 being Randy Jackson & Ciara. Simon said he doesn't expect the girls to fully settle in for a year so he said to have patience. Epic also said the girls are well on their way and that it's. process but they'll get to the top eventually. They have faith.

Hard to have a proper listen from the phone recordings, but Better Together sounds like a great track. I'd get it released.

Still don't get Miss Movin' On, its just not that good imo and they appear much better than that.

I like Miss Movin' On but I think they can do so much better, which they have, Who Are You and Better Together are fantastic tracks which showcase their vocals as well. Better Together should definitely be the next single...

Cowell talks about Fifth Harmony and One Direction

Of last season’s X Factor finalists, the five-member girl group Fifth Harmony — formed during X Factor’s boot camp after initially auditioning as solo artists — has shown the most staying power, despite finishing third overall.

Establishing a credible, thriving music career is a slow process, Cowell insisted last month in Los Angeles, despite television’s immediacy and the illusion that TV can create a star overnight.

“This is just the beginning,” a circumspect Cowell said, no longer playing the part of the Mouth That Roared. “To break a band like this will take maybe a year. But you know their record charted, I think, in eight countries the week it charted here. By the time we put two or three singles out this year, I think we are going to break them properly as a band.”

Cowell cited the English-Irish boy band One Direction as an example. One Direction competed on The X Factor’s seventh season in the U.K., and went on to release the chart-topping albums Up All Night and Take Me Home, in 2011 and 2012 respectively.

The irony is that they did not win The X Factor.

“They came in third,” Cowell recalled.

They didn’t claim anywhere near the financial prize they would have had for winning — $5 million at the time, since scaled back to $1 million.

“It was their drive and hunger that made the difference,” Cowell said. “I think that’s the point we’re trying to prove now.”

Can an EP chart on the album charts in America? Also why does their artwork always suck .

I'm excited for this though, I'm obsessed with Me and My Girls. I want them to put a studio version of their Frank Ocean - Thinkin' Bout You cover on it too.

Pre-orders don't chart here in the US. Gotta wait the opening week. EPs can chart. Gaga did 150k with The Fame Monster EP and debuted in the top 5. I'm hoping they do 55k-60k.

Here's the link to their recent ClevverTV interview: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0gT...e_gdata_player

Towards the end they mention a "thing", but then they talk about a "bigger thing" which has me thinking. I know they have a huge tour coming up in early 2014. They could be referencing that. All signs are pointing to a tour with Demi. On the other hand, I was thinking they could be talking about a national televised performance for the new year. Their album is rumored to be released later this year so anything is a possibility at this point.

In other news, the girls attended the Teen Vogue (young hollywood) party last night https://twitter.com/TeenVogue/status/383793188756267008

They've been in the studio this week learning spanish for their upcoming release of the acoustic and spanish version of their EP to be released this year. Lauren and Camila already speak the language and Ally knows a little spanish but needs practice.

Miss Movin' On will be played this weekend on AT40 between songs #21 & #20. Last weekend it gave MMO a huge boost in airplay audience #'s. SNOL (Saturday Night Online) should help as well tonight since harmonizers are very good at getting it played on their countdown every Saturday.

Last night it was played on TeenNick's Top 10 countdown for the second week in a row. Its also in "Diesel Rotation" for MTV Hits meaning it gets played 15-20 times a week. Fuse TV has played the music video a few times. Should get another play with harmonizers dominating their latest poll once again!

Ellen Show and X Factor USA performance have pretty much been booked. Hopefully some late night show appearances are in the works but we'll see. I'm sure Epic has other promo lined up for their EP

Interesting how it wasn't just a meal, their executive producer was invited as well. A business meeting over dinner, I'm pretty certain Simon has something big planned for 5H...

The song Better Together is just perfection. It showcases their vocal ability incredibly well as does Who Are You and Don't Wanna Dance Alone.

All of the songs sound really good!! I couldn't be happier with it. I think it'll have a Top 5 debut on Billboard and I can see it selling well for weeks after.

I wonder what happened to Warrior. I happened to see them live opening for Cher Lloyd and I thought that was their best moment. Pretty sure they said it was an original planned to be on the EP.

By the way, in case anyone missed it, they've been confirmed to be opening for Demi on Neon Lights tour along with Little Mix (most of the tour) and Cher Lloyd (end of the tour).

There seems to be some odd rivalry between pop groups among the kids that comes up in lots of Youtube comments, but it's still a good idea to try to cross the LM and 5H fanbases over, I think.
