Perrie explained: "Well I think with that the single, I think we didn’t want to push it back because we just wanted the world to hear it so that’s why we’ve released it now.
"Because we love it so much and I feel like it’s such a good upbeat positive uplifting song and that’s just what people need right now, but with the album, I think we are going to have to postpone it, yeah."
And it's not just the album's release date that's been affected but the new track's music video too.
Jamie asked about the group's plans to film in Brazil.
Perrie replied: "Yeah well that was supposed to be our second single, the music video that we were going to do out in Brazil but obviously when the whole corona thing first happened, they were stopping people from travelling, so the girls would’ve been in Brazil for such a long time, and then tried to fly back they would’ve had to been quarantined and stuff.
"So they shortened the trip. Obviously I couldn’t go to Brazil because I was poorly at the time, so they put the trip down short before that anyway, and then when it was just the gig, they just said it was probably worth not you not going."
Perrie has turned into a full-fledged housewife while self-isolating with footballer boyfriend Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Yesterday she confessed she hasn't stopped cooking and cleaning for the Liverpool midfielder since going into lockdown.
Appearing on Capital FM's Instagram Live this week, Perrie opened up on life inside their mansion during the coronavirus outbreak.
And while she may be pleased to be spending some quality time with her beau, who is currently on a break from football amid the pandemic, the singer admitted it hasn't been without its hardships.
She revealed: "I literally keep saying to people, when they’re like 'how is Alex?' I’m like, he’s good, but one, try rationing with an athlete in your house. It’s impossible, he’s never full.
"He’s like a pit that doesn’t fill up. He’s eaten literally everything in the kitchen, I’ve done nothing but cook and clean, I feel like a little housewifey, and he has a funny every half hour every day.
"Because he’s so energetic everyday training he’ll do like his training sessions and then he’ll just have a funny half hour and I’m just like 'what are you doing now?'"
She later added: "I’ve never cooked for him before either because he usually has a chef with the Liverpool team. It’s alright for some.
"So when I cook for him I get embarrassed, because I’m like, if it’s crap or I give him food poisoning, then what? Let’s not panic but obviously being trapped in the house I had to cook for him everyday."
Perrie also revealed she's missing her family after spending time apart.

The X Factor winner continued: "I miss my mam a lot, I’m a mummy’s girl. Like whenever I’m away or if I’m tired or if I don’t feel well, I’m like 'I just want my mum'.
"I’m 26 but I’m like a 6-year-old so it’s really hard not being able to see her because she’s high risk, because she’s got slow pneumonia, so she’s got water on the lungs so she has to be extra careful so I’m trying to stay away from her but I do miss like seeing everyone, it feels a bit bizarre.
"But luckily I’m isolating with Alex and with Ellie, Ellie is my best friend, cousin, PA, everything wrapped into one so we’ve got each other so that’s good."
Elite football clubs are not expected to play again until at least June 1 – despite action being suspended until April 30.
The newly-planned timetable would then see players given a pre-season of a month before an intense programme of matches.
Perrie and Alex recently treated fans to a cute dance routine on Instagram.
In the clip, the couple perform a perfectly in-sync routine as they flick their feet while making their way up a small set of marble stairs out of the kitchen.
Tune into Heart Breakfast with Jamie Theakston and Amanda Holden weekdays from 06:30 – 10:00.
