Well wasn’t that an exciting day for One Direction fans around the world!? It was action stations at Sony globally after the official video for the boys’ new single ‘Live While We’re Young’ leaked out onto the net, forcing the fivesome to cut their losses and run with the clip officially.
“We wanted our fans to see the video and hear the single in the proper way so we’ve moved the premiere to tonight,” the boys said in a statement. “We’re really excited about ‘Live While We’re Young’, we’ve worked really hard on it and we can’t wait for everyone to see and hear it later today!”
And there’s quite a bit riding on this single too. Given their first two singles in particular introduced the band to a global audience and had their (mainly) female fandom wetting themselves with excitement, Sony HQ will no doubt be hoping that the chaps have lost none of their spunk going into the next chapter.
The track? It’s pretty much everything you’d expect a One Direction single to be.
