One Direction have consistently said that they’ll be back together after a little hiatus to try their hands at solo material.
But, despite the lyrics of the song, the video for their latest single ‘History’ feels a whole lot more like a “it’s been great, let’s leave it here” kinda vibe than “there’s plenty more where this came from”.
It’s a pretty fantastic snapshot of the band’s trajectory since they first burst onto the scene as part of the British version of ‘The X Factor’ back in 2010.
There have been ups and downs, the departure of Zayn Malik (he’s included in the video), “minibars, expensive cars, hotel rooms, and new tattoos” and plenty of staggering chart and sales successes along the way.
The clip closes, perhaps poetically, with the boys going their separate ways.
