One Direction

X Factor stars One Direction have revealed that their new single Live While We're Young will be out on September 30.

It'll be the first track from the group's second studio album, expected to be released in time for Christmas.

The track will be available to pre-order from iTunes from midnight tonight.

The song will be penned by Savan Kotecha, Rami Yacoub & Carl Falk, who were behind the group's smash hit debut single What Makes You Beautiful.

A press release describes the track as "unmistakeably One Direction", claiming that ‘Live While We’re Young’ is "pop perfection – an immediate, energy packed song mixing rock undertones with smooth harmonies, about living for the moment."

The boys will be releasing their new album ahead of their first UK headlining arena tour in the new year.
