Very rarely does One Direction get to do this, orchestrated or not in the dark of the night and without their rabid fanbase getting remotely tipped about it…but they did it! The now foursome surprised Directioners early this morning (Friday July 31) with the release of “Drag Me Down,” now officially the first single off of a yet to be titled fifth effort due out in November!
“Drag Me Down” is described as a more mature effort from the quartet, showcasing “crashing guitars and soaring harmonies.” The song is now on iTunes and Spotify and will be on radio at later time. In the meantime, you can catch the guys on tour in the U.S., part of their world tour AND the Honda Civic Tour. After all that, they will return to their native UK for a sold out arena tour.
