The One Direction guys had a little treat for all the Directioners on Friday (September 14). They released the artwork for their “Live While We’re Young” single on Twitter, weeks ahead of the single’s October 1 release.
The “*amazing* new artwork,” as they called it on Twitter, features the fivesome out in nature together, sitting on lounge chairs and goofing off. It has a camping theme, signified by the tent in the background. Shortly after they released the image, Liam Payne tweeted, “Cant wait for the single to come outtttt.”
Maybe camping is the hot new thing in pop. Carly Rae Jepsen and Owl City also went camping for their “Good Time” video earlier this summer.
The 1D boys will also take their antics outside for the “Live While We’re Young” video. Shot back in August when the guys were in their native U.K., the video has a summer music festival vibe and has the guys getting wet and wild, acting silly with props and getting soaked by water guns.
“Live While We’re Young” is the lead single off the boys’ sophomore album release, Take Me Home. Out November 13, the album features work from Savan Kotecha, Rami Yacoub and Carl Falk — the team that also worked with the guys on their debut, including the hits “One Thing” and “What Makes You Beautiful.” They also worked with fellow Up All Night alum, Ed Sheeran, who tells MTV News he wrote love songs for the guys.
“Seventeen-year-old Ed just wrote a lot of love songs, so expect to hear a lot of love songs on their album, I guess,” he shared with MTV News about the vintage jams he gave his pals this time around.
