One Direction is enjoying chart-topping success with their latest album, Midnight Memories, and their single "Story of My Life." The band is ready to switch gears and present a more uptempo single to fans.
The band's album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard charts and made history being the third album in a row from One Direction to debut at the top of the charts.
One Direction took the stage during last night's X-Factor finale to premiere their new single, "Midnight Memories." X-Factor concluded with duo Alex and Sierra winning Season 3.
"Midnight Memories" fits in perfectly with the style of music fans are used to; it has catchy lyrics and an upbeat tempo that will make fans everywhere dance. The boys kept their performance simple during the finale by just focusing on singing and connecting with the audience.
This album does feature some growth and a more modern sound for One Direction, who might be trying to get away from their overly poppy boy-band sound. Midnight Memories keeps the pop music vibe alive and well, but it also shows that the band members are very talented vocalists as well.
Next year will be a busy one for One Direction as they head out on a world tour to help promote Midnight Memories.
