One Direction to release debut single in the States on February 14!

One Direction tour

Former X Factor finalists One Direction are to release their debut single in the US later this month, it has been confirmed.

The boys are to put their first track What Makes You Beautiful out in the States on February 14, having brought the release forward due to "popular demand."

The video for the song, which went to number one here in the UK last year, will be aired on Nickelodeon on February 11.

One Direction flew back from the American this week after a quick promo tour last month, but will be back out there again in March for more gigs and interviews, as well as a guest appearance on kids TV show iCarly.

They've already been building up a fanbase across the Atlantic, with hundreds of screaming girls turning up outside their hotels and airports as they toured in the country in January.
