You’re always going to open yourself up to criticism when you reveal that your latest single is going to be called ‘Best Song Ever’, because ultimately it’s the global record buying public who’ll decide whether it is or it isn’t. Back in 2010, Lady Gaga promised her ‘Born This Way’ set would be the “greatest album of this decade”. Which is wasn’t. By a long shot.
But semantics aside, Directioners across Australia were thrilled to wake up to news this morning that there was a new One Direction single ready and waiting for pre-order on the iTunes store.
‘Best Song Ever’ is to be featured in the band’s forthcoming movie ‘This Is Us’, which is set to be released to cinemas locally on September 19 and there’s a little snippet of the tune doing the rounds in the trailer for the movie (below), which premiered overnight.
The uptempo new single hits digital retail on Monday July 22.
