Heads up 1D Fans, mark your calendars for September 29th. One Direction’s latest – the newest single ‘Steal My Girl’ will premiere and will be released globally on the said date. Pop band One Direction has announced ‘Steal My Girl’ as the first single from their eagerly anticipated new album ‘FOUR.’ Fans from the UK and Ireland will have to wait a little longer though as the single will be released in their area on 12th October.
1D’s latest single showcases the band’s songwriting ability while ensuring that their pop sound loved by millions are still evident. ‘Steal My Girl’ is written by Louis and Liam with Ed Drewett, Wayne Hector, Julian Bunetta and John Ryan. This is the same team who collaborated behind last year’s massive hit ‘Best Song Ever.’ Bunetta, Ryan and Paro Westerlund produced the song.
The much-awaited album ‘FOUR’ was announced earlier this month. Fans already had a taster of it with ‘Fireproof,’ which became the most downloaded free track ever in the 24 hours it was available. The album then debuted at the number one spot in the iTunes album charts in 65 countries in its first 24 hours of being made available for pre-order. The record was set, beating 1D’s third album ‘Midnight Memories’, which debuted at the top in 39 countries and went on to become the top selling album of 2013 worldwide.
From being a newbie in the pop genre, One Direction became international superstars in just four years and boasts a staggering 94 number ones and over 46 million records sold. As the band’s songwriting becomes more personal with each record, ‘FOUR’ is set to be their most stunning yet. The album follows the global success of their huge sell out ‘Where We Are’ stadium tour, which will be shown in cinemas globally for one weekend only on 11th and 12th October and released to DVD from 29th November (international release dates vary). Add all this to their 3 billion YouTube views, 110 million combined Twitter followers and 34 million Facebook fans and it’s clear that Liam, Harry, Louis, Niall and Zayn genuinely are a worldwide phenomenon.
‘FOUR’ will be released globally on November 17th 2014 and fans (excluding UK and Ireland) can receive ‘Steal My Girl’ instantly from September 29th if they pre-order the deluxe album on iTunes. Mark these dates 1D fans and be sure to connect with the band on social media, particularly Facebook and Twitter for more updates.
