While Christmas is still months away, we now have the first item on our wish list: One Direction has confirmed that they will release their third album right around the holidays!

Louis Tomlinson revealed the news in an interview with the UK's Daily Star. He says the boys started recording songs about a month ago.

"We've been writing and recording it while on tour. We are really happy with it," Louis spills. "We don't want to rush it but it will be out for Christmas."

We now have a 1D movie and a new album to look forward to! Could 2013 get any better for Directioners?
