One Direction appeared on Good Morning America today as a foursome to debut their new single, “Drag Me Down.” In the interview, the boys talked about life for the band, after Zayn Malik left to go solo. They call the group’s fifth studio album “quite eclectic.”
Comparing the new track to The Police, Liam Payne said the new album took a lot of inspiration from “old rock.” They also promoted their charity initiative, Action 1D. “We wanted to use it…to make a real difference,” said Harry Styles.
Michael Strahan, sitting in as guest host, congratulated Louis Tomlinson on his impending fatherhood. “Obviously, it’s a very exciting time,” Louis said, commenting on the news for the first time. “I’m buzzing.”
