One Direction’s ‘Four’ Offers Fans a ‘Window’ Into The Group
Much to the delight of Directioners everywhere, One Direction unexpectedly announced the release of their fourth album, aptly titled Four, earlier this month. It’s set to hit retailers on Nov. 17, just in time for the holiday season.

It’s a “window into how they’re feeling and what they’re going through. The happiness and the sadness and the ups and downs,” 1D’s frequent collaborator Julian Bunetta, who serves as a co-­producer/co-­songwriter on Four, told Billboard. “Everybody wants to not settle. Nobody wants to repeat the formula.”

Before the album drops, 1D prepares for the release of its official lead single, “Steal My Girl,” on Sept. 29. While the track has yet to even get its first spin, 1D already has fans buzzing with anticipation. They’ve previously offered up one of the album’s other cuts, “Fireproof,” as a free download for 24 hours, the day of the album’s announcement on Sept. 8. And fans gobbled it up, downloading it 1.1 million times during that short window.

A long week of celebrating (Niall Horan turned 21 at midnight on Sept. 13) and mysterious injuries (Liam Payne sported a bandaged hand) culminated in 1D’s opening performance at the iHeartRadio Music Festival’s second and final night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

As Payne himself said shortly after the band performed its newly minted signature hit “Story Of My Life,” “We’ve been here for too long. We lost all our money, it’s all gone. Harry’s not old enough to be here — we need someone to escort him back.”
