The band One Direction fans were surprised today. The band dropped the song on iTunes and Spotify worldwide today at 6.30am (UK time) with no fanfare, and before premiering it on radio or online.

Featuring crashing guitars and soaring harmonies, ‘Drag Me Down’ showcases a more mature One Direction sound.

Liam Payne said, “We want this to be quite a long lasting album that you can listen to anytime like Ed’s album”

With sales of over 65 million worldwide and performances to over 7.5 million fans, One Direction have become a pop phenomenon. In May this year the band won two Billboard Awards for Top Group and Top Touring Artist.

The band are currently on the American leg of their massive On The Road Again stadium tour, before returning to the UK this September for another sold out arena tour. Their fifth album is due for release this November.
