The X Factor 2010 favourites One Direction have revealed they'll be releasing their debut single in June this summer. The five group members announced plans for their first ever album on ITV1's The Alan Titchmarsh Show yesterday afternoon, before dashing off to catch-up with The X Factor live tour.
One Direction and the other top 9 finalists are currently on the last leg of the 2011 tour, with just a week of shows in Wales to go before the end of the epic two month arena outing.
Speaking about the group's current plans for their material, Zayn Malik said: "I think we're looking to release in the summertime - June sometime."
Zayn and fellow group members - Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles and Niall Hora - spent January in the states recording music for their upcoming record, which is to be released on Simon Cowell's Syco label.
