Since coming third place on UK X Factor back in 2010, One Direction have taken the world by storm and in just 3 years have catapulted to a level of global fame that even surpasses The Beatles.
The band have released 2 #1 albums since November 2011, and are set to release their third this November. The third LP has been christened ‘Midnight Memories‘ and will be released on November 25 through Sony Music.
‘Midnight Memories‘ will mark a new sound for the band, according to member Niall Horan – who turns 20 years old today (Happy birthday Niall!). Liam Payne also revealed that their new material contains a “rockier, edgier” sound and is “more personal”.
The album has already hit #1 as it went straight to the top in several countries when it was made available to pre-order on iTunes. Both the standard edition and deluxe edition are available, with the standard edition containing 14 songs and the deluxe having an additional 4.
Lead single ‘Best Song Ever‘ is listed as track 1 on iTunes, but no other song titles have been revealed as of yet. ‘Best Song Ever‘ has thus far peaked at #2 on both the UK singles chart and Billboard Hot 100 chart – the single was released in support of the band’s first feature film ‘One Direction: This Is Us‘.
The band will take their new album on tour next year with their worldwide stadium Where We Are Tour.
