With the deactivation and reactivation of a certain member’s Twitter account, and the announcement that their new single “Live While We’re Young” will be available to pre-order from midnight tonight (August 24), One Direction have had a busy few days. Poor souls. However, it’s just got a whole lot more exciting.
At this stage, the 1D boys know a thing or two about breaking a few world records, but surely they’ll be impressed with themselves when they find out that their aforementioned new single, has become the FASTEST SELLING PRE-ORDER OF ALL TIME.
Those Directioners are a dedicated bunch and have sent the boys’ impending single into the stratosphere, by making it No. 1 in more than forty countries – and all this without even hearing the song played on radio.
The song, which will be released on September 30, was penned by Savan Kotecha, Rami Yacoub and Carl Falk (the team behind “What Makes You Beautiful”) and has been described as “pop perfection – an immediate, energy packed song mixing rock undertones with smooth harmonies, about living for the moment”.
