One Direction announce new album details
One Direction’s new album will be called Made in the A.M.
The four-piece made the announcement on Twitter on Tuesday (22Sep15), causing mass hysteria among fans.
The British group – Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson - also confirmed the release date for the record – November 13th.
Made in the A.M. will be the band’s first release since Zayn Malik sensationally quit back in March.
And the album will also mark the group’s final record before they go on hiatus in March 2016.
Liam previously spoke about One Direction’s upcoming hiatus, admitting it’s inevitable that the group will be heading in different directions and focusing on solo projects.
However, Liam once again emphasised that the group are not breaking up, and are merely taking a “well-earned break”.
“It’s been five years and it’s time to take a well-earned break,” he told Attitude magazine. “Of course we’ll work together again; we’re not splitting up. We’re just having some time out.
“I realise now is the time to start branching out and exploring. This won’t last forever and there will be a point when we will break off and do our own things, but it’s something that comes back around and we will work together again.
“I want to target every part of the industry. I have written country songs. I started out doing rap songs. That’s where my mind is set.”
Alongside news of the album, One Direction also revealed that the track Infinity, taken from Made in the A.M., will be released on September 22nd.
The announcements come ahead of the band headlining London’s famous Roundhouse venue for the iTunes music festival.
They will then head to the O2 Arena where they will take to the stage for six nights for part of the UK leg of their On The Road Again tour.
Made in the A.M. is sure to be a hit, with their July chart-topping single Drag Me Down the first track taken from the record.
However, the boys will certainly have some competition on their hands if they want to top the album charts.
Justin Bieber revealed earlier this month that he will also be releasing his new album on November 13th.
