2 min read

The planet’s biggest pop band One Direction return with ‘FOUR’, their brand new album and the follow-up to ‘Midnight Memories, the UK’s best-selling album of 2013.

To herald the album announcement, the band are giving away a brand new track from the record as a free download, ‘Fireproof’. Fans can download the track for free from the boys’ official website from today for a limited period of 24 hours only.

‘Fireproof’ is written by Louis and Liam with John Ryan, Jamie Scott and Julian Bunetta – the same team behind their smash hit single ‘Story Of My Life’.

‘FOUR’ is available to pre-order from today, and will be released on November 17th 2014.

With a staggering 94 number ones and over 46 million records sold, in just four short years One Direction have gone from energetic pop upstarts to international superstars. Third album ‘Midnight Memories’ made them the first band in history to debut at the top of the US Billboard chart with their first three albums and saw them named the IFPI’s Global Artist of 2013 for becoming the biggest selling act in the world.

As the band’s song writing becomes more personal with each record, ‘FOUR’ is set to be their most stunning yet. The album follows the global success of their huge sell out ‘Where We Are’ stadium tour and their 3D film documentary ‘This Is Us.’ Add all this to their 3 billion YouTube views, 109 million combined Twitter followers and 33 million Facebook fans and it’s clear that Liam, Harry, Louis, Niall and Zayn genuinely are a worldwide phenomenon.
