I’m so excited! One Direction blogged at their official site and announced their new album “Midnight Memories” which will be available on November 25, 2013! The album is available for pre-order now. Read the message from the guys below:

Hey guysssss. We can’t believe we have announced that we will be releasing our new album Midnight Memories!! We’ve put a lot of love into this album and we’re really proud of our new music – we hope you’ll love the tracks as much as we do. We had amazing time writing and recording on the road!!

We can’t believe everything we’ve achieved and we owe it all to you.


One Direction Makes U.S. Music History

British boyband One Direction have made U.S. music history after topping the 200 Billboard charts with their second album.

The group – made up of Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson – sold 540,000 copies of Take Me Home in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

It marks the first time a British band have seen their first two albums debut at the top of the American chart – after their first offering, Up All Night, secured the No. 1 position with 176,000 copies in March this year.

It also comes as the year’s third-highest debut behind Taylor Swift’s Red, which sold 1.2 million units its first week earlier this month, and Mumford & Sons’ Babel, which sold more than 600,000 albums in September in its debut week.

‘We just want to say a massive thanks to all the fans who have supported us,’ band member Harry Styles, 18, said in an interview Tuesday from London. 

Take me home sold 540,000 copies in its first week

‘We can send tweets and thank them, but 140 characters is never going be enough to say how much it means.’

The album also debuted at No. 1 in the UK this week and is No. 1 in more than 30 countries, Columbia Records said on Wednesday.

The fivesome’s debut, Up All Night, came in at No. 2 in the United Kingdom last year; it was just released in March in America, where it hit No. 1 and has achieved platinum status.

‘We were a little bit nervous about how people were going to take it,’ 19-year-old Niall Horan said of the new album during tour rehearsals. ‘Everyone gets that second album syndrome.’

They say though they’re excited, they won’t be celebrating too much: ‘We’re finishing rehearsing soon and we’re going home to bed.’

One Direction, who came third on the UK version of The X Factor in 2010, is signed to Simon Cowell’s Syco label imprint.

In just a year, the band has become worldwide sensations, thanks to its feverish fans.

They released a book and have a 3D movie planned. They also made the cut for Barbara Walters’ most fascinating people of 2012 list, which includes New Jersey Gov Chris Christie and U.S. gold medal-winning gymnast Gabby Douglas.

One Direction says those experiences have helped the group mature.

‘We’ve been working hard. We’re starting to grow up,’ Horan said. ‘We’re still young, but we’ve passed the initial teenage years. …We’ve grown up quite quick in the job we have to do and we became a lot more independent.’

The group – which includes Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson – will launch a worldwide tour in February. They hope to work with Katy Perry and are still trying to adjust to the celebrity and fame that has taken over their lives.

‘I can see how it gets to people. I guess it’s quite easy to get wrapped up in it all,’ Styles said. ‘We do the same things every other lad our age does. We go out, we have fun, we meet girls and stuff like that.

‘Sometimes it gets written about, which, yeah, we think about it and it’s absolutely crazy. It’s still a bit weird thinking that that’s the way it is.’

‘Take Me Home’ Album Available Now

One Direction’s new album, ‘Take Me Home‘ is now out!! It actually came out yesterday, but I did not have time to post about it. Anyway, make sure you order or go out and buy the new album to support the boys. Check out a video below of 1D revealing their favorite tracks on the album:

The day that Directioners have been waiting for is finally here! One Direction’s sophomore album Take Me Home is in stores, and fans can finally listen to the album that the fivesome have spent months working on.

Take Me Home is an assortment of pop candy that shows off the group’s growth since coming in third place during the 2010 season of the “X Factor” in the U.K. Each member seems to have an equal amount of solo opportunities, but their voices blend over melodic harmonies and big beats, with each song taking on a unique sound.

MTV News recently caught up with the boy band, who will appear on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Thursday, and each member broke down their favorite track off Take Me Home.

 

If for some reason you could not watch the video, find out Louis’ favorite song of the album below:

Louis Tomlinson: “Back for You”
“I’m gonna go ‘Back for You’ because we did a lot of writing on that,” Tomlinson said. “And that was fun.”

This up-tempo track mixes in rock with pop as the boys daydream about their girlfriends at home while they are on the road. The lyrics are fun and will definitely be a huge hit with the Directioners as they sing along during the 2013 world tour.
