One Direction’s US Release of ‘Up All Night’ Moved Up!

One Direction is definitely one of the hot groups to watch. Their recent trip to the US brought out over 500 fans to LAX for their arrival!

Because of the overwhelming fan demand, fans in the US will be able to get their hands on 1D’s debut album, Up All Night earlier than expected! The release date has been moved up a week to March 13, 2012.

The hit single, ‘What Makes You Beautiful’, will be released stateside digitally on February 14th and the band’s music video for the song will premiere on Feb. 11, during the network’s primetime Valentine’s-themed “Crush Night” slate of live-action premieres.

Over the course of a few months, and eight challenges, Dallas has proven its immense love for UK breakout group One Direction and has won the right to host the band at a special event this March. With the innovative Bring 1D to U.S. campaign, fans from cities across the United States competed against rival cities for the right to bring One Direction to their respective hometowns. Weekly challenges were posted by the band through @Bring1DtoUS on Twitter, as well as on www.Bring1DtoUs.com, and points were awarded to the winning city. The city with the most points at the conclusion of the eight challenges would win a special visit from One Direction. Cities were neck and neck during the challenges, creating video submissions, submitting fan art, and placing their signatures on online petition site Twitition – setting a record for a Twitition! Although New York, Chicago, Los Angeles were among the toughest competitors, it was Dallas that emerged victorious in the end.

You can pre-order Up All Night now on iTunes in standard edition and deluxe edition. You can also see 1D out on tour with Big Time Rush on the Better with U tour starting later this month. Be on the lookout for their episode of “iCarly” later this year as well!
