Niall responded to the news report and said that they would just be taking a break and not actually breaking up.
Liam Payne even tweeted that he’s super-excited for fans to listen to it!
The quartet revealed Made In the A.M. is now available for pre-order ahead of its November 13, while a second track from the album was released on Tuesday.
They shared, “Our new album, Made In The A.M., is available for pre-order today”. This will also be their first album without Zayn Malik, which makes it a little tough to digest. The break will come after the release of their highly anticipated fifth album, which they will be promoting until February 2016.
In the meantime, though, fans can still see One Direction perform together a few more times before their dreaded hiatus.
Continuing to showcase a more mature sound for the band, “Infinity” provides a taster of what to expect from the upcoming album.
The boy band opened their set with Steal My Girl in front of a packed audience at the Roundhouse in Camden.
He added, “A lot of people say to me, ‘Oh, you’ll go solo, ‘ but I haven’t thought about that”.
Made In The A.M comes following the mass success of One Direction’s debut single from the album, Drag Me Down, which went to number one in the iTunes charts in a very large 90 countries AND broke streaming records globally.
Bieber also released the single “Where Are U Now” from the new album.
