We thought the biggest One Direction release happening this fall would be their Where We Are concert film, but the boys just dropped some major news. Their fourth album (appropriately called Four) is coming out on November 17th, and they're giving fans one of their tracks for free.
Liam Payne was the first to announce the big news on Twitter.
Our new album is called FOUR! we've been working so hard on this…so glad we can share it with you!!! http://t.co/cq20WIn1Gr— liam (@RealLiamPayne) September 8, 2014
The album cover art shows the 1D guys hamming it up for the camera — and, of course, Harry Styles is wearing his signature hat.
Plus, as a special surprise for their Directioners, the band released one of their new tracks, "Firework," for free on their website for 24 hours.
The song was written by Louis Tomlinson and Liam, so we're definitely wondering if they're talking about their longtime girlfriends Eleanor Calder and Sophia Smith. It's about a relationship being "fireproof" — how cute!
Are you excited for 1D's new album? Do you like their new song "Fireproof"? Tell us in the comments!
