British pop superstars One Direction will release their eagerly anticipated third studio album, MIDNIGHT MEMORIES globally on November 25, 2013 via Syco/Columbia Records. MIDNIGHT MEMORIES will be available for pre-order Monday, September 9 and in stores on Monday, November 25.
MIDNIGHT MEMORIES will include worldwide smash hit single “Best Song Ever,” which recently made history on VEVO by racking up the highest number of views within 24 hours with a total of 12.3 million views. The music video for the single went on to win the “Song of the Summer” Award at the 2013 MTV Video Music Video Awards in Brooklyn.
2013 has been a monumental year for One Direction, who have played over 100 shows in 21 countries on their first ever Take Me Home World Tour. In February, the band visited Ghana with UK charity Comic Relief and recorded the official 2013 Red Nose Day charity single, “One Way Or Another (Teenage Kicks).” To date they have raised over $3 million dollars for the charity. That same month they also won a BRIT Award for Global Success, and in August 2013 took home an astounding 6 Teen Choice Awards, including Choice Music Group.
One Direction made their movie debut last week with their massive hit 3D concert movie and documentary One Direction: This Is Us. The film has been a phenomenal success, topping the UK and US box offices and grossing an incredible $18.4 million on its opening weekend in the US alone and an additional $14.8 million worldwide.
In early 2014, One Direction will begin their Worldwide Where We Are Stadium Tour in South America and then head to the UK, which will include 2 nights at Wembley stadium, as well as eight sold out dates in the UK and Ireland.
Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson formed in 2010 and have amassed a loyal fanbase and fame all across the globe. They have impressively sold over 32 million records and have achieved a total of 61 number ones.
