With a staggering 94 number ones and over 46 million records sold, in just four short years, One Direction have gone from energetic pop upstarts to international superstars. As the band's song writing becomes more personal with each record, FOUR is set to be their most stunning yet. The album follows the global success of their huge sell out WHERE WE ARE stadium tour and the 3D film documentary THIS IS US. Fans also had the opportunity to relive this summers' tour with the release of their second film WHERE WE ARE: THE CONCERT FILM, which broke records as the biggest ever Event Cinema audience across one weekend. The WHERE WE ARE: THE CONCERT FILM DVD will be released on Dec. 2. Add all this to their 3 billion YouTube views, 109 million combined Twitter followers and 33 million Facebook fans and it's clear that Liam, Harry, Louis, Niall and Zayn genuinely are a worldwide phenomenon.
FOUR will be released globally on Nov. 17, 2014 via Syco/Columbia Records. Fans can receive the band's first single "Steal My Girl" instantly if they pre-order the deluxe album on iTunes: http://smarturl.it/1DFouriTdlx.
