One Direction are set to release their debut single 'What Makes You Beautiful' on September 12, it has been revealed. With the record already available to pre-order, the track is currently sitting at number two in the iTunes charts - ahead of both Amy Winehouse and Adele!

The song, an up-tempo number, is written by The X Factor's vocal coach Savan Kotecha, who has worked with almost every X Factor finalist since the show started. Rami Yacoub and Carl Falk co-wrote and produced the song with Savan.

'What Makes You Beautiful' will premiere on radio later this month, before being released for download on September 11 and in stores on September 12.
