“The support for the new album and Fireproof has been amazing! So so excited for you all to hear more! Loveeeee,” Louis Tomlinson tweeted earlier this week.
Niall Horan also wrote, “The reaction to ‘fireproof’ has been unbelievable, really makes us excited for you to hear the rest of FOUR! Thank you xx.”
One Direction already made Guinness World Record by having their first three albums on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Their Midnight Memories hit had 546,000 copies sold in their first week of sales in December 2013. They’ve also had a lot of chart-topping success with Up All Night and Take Me Home.
Four will be released Nov. 17. We can’t wait to hear the rest of the songs!
