It’s happening: One Direction‘s fifth (and final album before they take a break) is coming this fall, according to Harry, Louis, Niall and Liam.
In a 15-second video uploaded to their Twitter account, 1D revealed Made In the A.M. is currently available for pre-order ahead of its Nov. 13 release date. Even better, a new 1D song — the first new song from Made In the A.M. since “Drag Me Down,” which hit No. 3 on the Hot 100 — will be available today.

After their 2015 album, the remaining four members of 1D will take a “well earned break at some point next year,” but are not “splitting up,” according to Niall Horan. It’s currently unknown if 1D will tour behind Made In the A.M., but a world tour seems unlikely under the circumstances. Their current tour wraps in October.
2016 could see a different Direction-related bit of music, though — former member Zayn Malik is currently working with Frank Ocean’s creative partner Malay on studio material that the songwriter-producer says is “pure genius.” Malik is signed to RCA as a solo artist.
The band’s tune “Infinity” is now on Spotify. Listen below.
