One Direction gave their loyal fans a sweet treat and a massive surprise Tuesday, when they released details about their new album, as well as a new song.
The band first announced the name of their fifth album and its release date via a Twitter video, before dropping the news that the second song would also be available for download, according to Entertainment Weekly (EW). One Direction’s new album is called “Made In The A.M.” and would be out in music stores on Nov. 13. Loyal fans and music lovers, who would preorder the album, will also get to enjoy instant download of the band’s new song, “Infinity.”
The group's newly released track was written by John Ryan, Jamie Scott, and Julian Bunetta, who also wrote the One Direction hit “Story Of My Life.” In an interview earlier this year, Bunetta told EW that the album will feature more “strings and horns” and that the band did some “experimenting with different instrumentation.” He added, “We’re stretching out outside of the perimeters of what a traditional pop boy band would do.”
Band member Niall Horan also told Entertainment Tonight last May that their fifth album will have a “few different sounds” and that the tracks will be different from each other. Horan explained, “Not all the songs sound the same, like, same vibe. They are all kind of different. Couple of different guitars and drums. It’s a lot different than what we did before... but, it’s 'cool."
The four member boy band also previously released the first single from the “Made In The A.M” album earlier this summer. “Drag Me Down” reached the third spot on the Billboard Hot 100, according to Entertainment Tonight, and the band’s new song “Infinity” is also expected to hit the charts soon after its release.
Meanwhile, One Direction fans went crazy with the band’s new song and took to Twitter to express their delight, E!News reported. Some wrote that the song was “so good” while others bookmarked the album’s release date and labeled it “the day we die.”
“Made In The A.M” will be One Direction’s last album before the group will go on their extended hiatus.
