Get excited, Directioners: Your boys are back!
One Direction‘s new music video for “Live While We’re Young” leaked online Thursday, but the unauthorized, poor-quality video was speedily pulled down from YouTube. The clip showed Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles and Zayn Malik on a luxe camping trip, complete with a fully clothed swim in a lake.
The video was supposed to premiere Sept. 24, but 1D announced via Twitter Thursday they’d upped the premiere date to Thursday at 1 p.m. ET on their VEVO channel. The single itself will premiere on the radio an hour before the video debut.
“We wanted our fans to see the video and hear the single in the proper way so we’ve moved the premiere to tonight,” the band said in a statement Thursday. “We’re really excited about ‘Live While We’re Young’, we’ve worked really hard on it and we can’t wait for everyone to see and hear it later today!”
Later is now: Check it out below.
“Live While We’re Young” is the first single from the boys’ sophomore album Take Me Home, which will be released Sept. 30.
