The band that has taken over Europe -- and the Internet! -- by storm is finally coming to the U.S.!
Former The X Factor UK group One Direction's debut album Up All Night was the UK's biggest debut of 2011, and now it will officially be released on Syco/Columbia Records here this spring on... drumroll, please... March 20, 2012.
The album also features the pop-rock song "Tell Me A Lie" written by Kelly Clarkson as well as the ballad "Gotta Be You" and other sure-to-be hits "More Than This" and "One Thing." (Click "Read More" for full track listing.)
And that's not all -- One Direction's Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Harry Styles and Zayn Malik will also make their U.S. tour debut on Big Time Rush's Better With U tour this spring. (Click "Read More" for dates.)
