One Direction’s New Single “Live While We’re Young” Out October 1

Great news Directioners!! One Direction has just announced the first single from their upcoming sophomore album!

The UK band will release their hugely anticipated brand new single “Live While We’re Young” on October 1 and it will be available for pre-order later tonight.

For “Live While We’re Young,” One Direction reunited with songwriters Savan Kotecha, Rami Yacoub & Carl Falk and the result is a single that is “pop perfection” – an immediate, energy packed song mixing rock undertones with smooth harmonies, about living for the moment.

One Direction’s new album is set for a November 2012 and sees One Direction collaborating with a whole host of first class writers and producers. As well as reuniting with the likes of Rami Yacoub & Carl Falk and Savan Kotecha (‘One Thing’ & ‘What Makes You Beautiful’), Ed Sheeran and McFly’s Tom Fletcher, the album features input from Dr Luke (Katy Perry ‘Teenage Dream’, Taio Cruz ‘Dynamite’), Shellback (Maroon 5 ‘Moves Like Jagger’) and Toby Gad (Beyoncè ‘If I Were A Boy’).

That is a hot list of collaborators! We have a feeling this album will blow the first one out of the water.

Are you excited for 1D’s new single? We hope they perform “Live WHile We’re Young” at the VMA’s next month!

Update: MTV will also be airing the special, One Direction: My First Time, next Thursday, August 30 at 11pm! Check out the promo below.
