The boys are also pleased to announce that the first single from the album 'Live While We're Young' will premiere on radio stations worldwide on Monday 24th September.

It’s been little short of an incredible year for Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson. Formed on the 2010 series of The X Factor, they released their Number 1 sensation debut single ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ in September 2011 and haven’t looked back since. 1D Mania has swept the globe, with acres of news print being covered and the band selling a massive 12 MILLION records worldwide.
Their debut album 'Up All Night' has to date reached No.1 in 17 countries – becoming the first UK band to debut at No.1 on the US Billboard chart with their first album. They've sold out tours across the UK, USA, Australia and New Zealand, alongside New York’s Madison Square Garden along the way. One Direction's live dvd has also been an amazing success, reaching No.1 in 27 different countries.
In Spring 2013 One Direction will begin their sold out World Tour in the UK which includes a massive nine shows at London’s O2 Arena.
