One Direction New Single: Band Announces Release Of 'Live While We're Young' (VIDEO)

The #1DBigAnnouncement that Directioners have all been waiting for with baited breath is here. One Direction fans finally can stop listening to "One Thing" on repeat as of today at midnight (or not!), when they will be able to preorder the band's new single, "Live While We're Young."

The song will be the first release from the band's sophomore album, which will be released in November. The boys announced the news this morning by posting a link to the above video to their official Twitter account.

It's been an eventful week for One Direction fans, and not only because of the "Live While We're Young" announcement. Zayn Malik deleted his Twitter account on Tuesday evening because of "useless opinions and hate," but as of this morning (and just in time for their big announcement!), the group's soulful "bad boy," @zaynmalik, is up and tweeting again. Phew.

Are you excited for the new single? Any predictions for the new album? Tell us in the comments below or tweet @HuffPostTeen!
