It's a big day for Directioners! Not only has Zayn Malik returned to Twitter (yay!) but the boys of One Direction also had some big news for their fans this morning, which they shared via video!

The boys' sophomore album — currently untitled — is set for a November 2012 release. But, you won't have to wait until November to hear their new music, because their first single "Live While We're Young" will be available online and in stores on October 1 and is available for pre-order now. "Live While We're Young" is described as a "an immediate, energy packed song mixing rock undertones with smooth harmonies, about living for the moment."

Check out 1D's video announcement below:
