Behind The Scenes clip from Steal My Girl

They’re preparing to release their fourth album, and it appears One Direction are ready to show off their wacky side if their video for new single Steal My Girl is anything to go by.

In an exclusive behind-the-scenes clip from the promo shoot, the band can be seen descending on the blazing hot desert outside Los Angeles. The boys look effortlessly cool despite the blazing heat while they perform atop a rocky ridge

But it’s Zayn who appears to be having the most fun on set – he takes charge and calls action on the shoot, before dancing to the catchy track with a pair of sumo wrestlers. Taking in the spectacle, the 21-year-old says: ‘It’s sick. It doesn’t look like a One Direction video shoot, it’s like some mad movie set.’

Bounce: The pop star, 21, got into the spirit of sumo wrestling by hurling himself at a burly fighter during the shoot

It appears Liam also indulges in the bizarre – he can be seen strolling around the set in a glitzy blue and purple band leader’s jacket.
Harry refuses to be left out and is surrounded by ballerinas brandishing umbrellas in one sequence.

Speaking about the promo, director Ben Winston told the Daily Mirror: ‘It’s quite an exciting video. You should expect the unexpected on this one. It’s weird and wonderful.’

It was revealed earlier this week that Hollywood royalty Danny DeVito will play a music video director in the promo.

Steal My Girl – Lyrics

   Sep




Steal my girl

She’s been my queen since we were sixteen
We want the same things, we dream the same dreams, alright, alright
I got it all cause she is the one
Her mum calls me love, her dad calls me son, alright, alright

I know, I know, I know for sure

Everybody wanna steal my girl
Everybody wanna take her heart away
Couple billion in the whole wide world
Find another one cause she belongs to me

Everybody wanna steal my girl
Everybody wanna take her heart away
Couple billion in the whole wide world
Find another one cause she belongs to me

Na na na na na (oh yeah)
Na na na na na (alright)
Na na na na na (oh yeah)
Na na, she belongs to me

Kisses that queen, her walk is so mean
And every jaw drops when she’s in those jeans, alright, alright
I don’t exist if I don’t have her
The sun doesn’t shine, the world doesn’t turn, alright, alright

But I know, I know, I know for sure

Everybody wanna steal my girl
Everybody wanna take her heart away
Couple billion in the whole wide world
Find another one cause she belongs to me

Everybody wanna steal my girl
Everybody wanna take her heart away
Couple billion in the whole wide world
Find another one cause she belongs to me

Na na na na na (oh yeah)
Na na na na na (alright)
Na na na na na
Na na

She knows, she knows
That I never let her down before
She know, she knows
That I’m never gonna let another take her love from me, now

Everybody wanna steal my girl
Everybody wanna take her heart away
Couple billion in the whole wide world
Find another one cause she belongs to me

Everybody wanna steal my girl
Everybody wanna take her heart away
Couple billion in the whole wide world
Find another one cause she belongs to me

Na na na na na (oh yeah)
Na na na na na (alright)
Na na na na na (oh yeah)
Na na, she belongs to me

Na na na na na (she belongs to me, yeah)
Na na na na na (alright)
Na na na na na

She belongs to me

Exclusive: One Direction’s new single: ‘Steal My Girl’ – First listen review

One Direction have little to worry about when it comes to their rivals trying to steal the boyband crown. Their upcoming album Four hit number one on 65 iTunes charts across the world two whole months before it’s even released, waiting to add to the 94 official chart-topping positions they’ve already achieved in their career so far.

However, if its lead single ‘Steal My Girl’ is anything to go by, the five-piece are a little vulnerable when it comes to potential love rivals.
“She’s been my queen since we were sixteen
We want the same things
We dream the same dreams, alright?”

Zayn warns on the opening line – and it’s the perfectly-quiffed crooner who takes centre stage for most of the track.

Co-written by Louis and Liam, along with Ed Drewett, Wayne Hector, Julian Bunetta and John Ryan (the ‘Best Song Ever’ dream team), ‘Steal My Girl’ begins with a jubilant Elton-meets-ABBA piano line, before it flits between the bouncy riff with added skittering electronics, and light bass guitar strums. It’s a minor departure from what we’ve come to expect from a One Direction lead single, but not so much that it would feel out of place at one of their sold-out shows.

The premise is simple: these guys are head over heels for their childhood sweethearts
“I got it all ‘cos she is the one
Her mum calls me ‘love’, her dad calls me ‘son’, alright.”

And this is a stadium-sized caution for prying scallywags to stay away. Even if
“every jaw drops when she’s in those jeans, alright.”

Zayn shines on the mid-tempo anthem – especially when he climbs into his magnificent ‘You and I’-styled high note for the final chorus – while Niall’s “I know, I know” on the bridge, and the epic “Na, na, na, na, na” refrain instantly lodges itself in your brain. Sure, it’s pop by numbers, but it’s very, very good pop by numbers.

Is this the more mature sound One Direction have been teasing? No, but it’s a solid transitional song that will likely lead into the slightly more ‘Fireproof’ adult contemporary crossover vibe for the remainder of Four. Do we think this is another number one hit for the group? Of course it is! It swoops, it soars – and most importantly, it’s insanely catchy.

One Direction’s fourth album, ‘Four,’ hits stores in November; hear new song, ‘Fireproof’   
   9
   Sep




Almost exactly a year after releasing its third album, “Midnight Memories,” enduring boy band One Direction returns Nov. 17 with its fourth album, the cleverly titled “Four” (Are they in cahoots with Maroon 5, who just released “V,” their fifth album? Also, not to be confused with Huey Lewis & The News’ “Fore” album)

The British quintet announced the album via YouTube, as well as informed fans about the availability of 24-hour free download of “Fireproof.” Two of the band’s members, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne, co-wrote the new tune with John Ryan, Jamie Scott and Julian Bunetta.

“Fireproof” is a mid-tempo, sweet, wistful tune, which features, per usual, the members trading lines about a love that goes on despite the odds. A drum loop propels it forward, as a nice electric guitar line gives it some heft. It doesn’t have an undeniably catchy chorus or build like “Story of My Life,” but it’s a nice sign as to where the boys are musically now and it sneakily grows on you with repeated listenings.

Boy bands have a built-in shelf life and One Direction continues to make the absolute most of its time in the sun. The band recently finished a wildly successful worldwide stadium tour and its three previous albums have sold more than 46 million copies. “Midnight Memories” was world’s best-selling album in 2013.

There are still plenty of albums to be announced for the fourth quarter— including (though unlikely) potential Adele and U2 releases—but it’s starting to shape up with Taylor Swift on Oct. 27; Foo Fighters, Nov. 11; One Direction Nov. 17, and Garth Brooks the week after. It’s not going to be enough to safe the continuing downward sales spiral (as Katie Hasty wrote about here), but we’re probably looking at four weeks where the No. 1 album sells at least 500,000 copies in its opening frame).

“Fireproof” is below the album announcement.

One Direction’s Midnight Memories track Diana leaks online   
   22
   Sep




A One Direction song called Diana, said to be from the band’s third album Midnight Memories, has been leaked.

It seems Directioners just can’t wait until something is officially released before unveiling it to the world ahead of time.

Diana has found its way online and fans are already in love with it.

The track is said to be dedicated to the group’s fans all over the world as a way of letting them know that they appreciate them.

Despite the mushy subject matter, it is an upbeat, positive pop song with a summery feel, and is a bit different to the generic style of music they have been putting out up to this point.

The lyrics include: ‘Diana/Let me the one to/Light a fire inside your life/You can own me/You don’t even know me/But I can feel you crying’.

Diana will be welcome news to the fivesome’s global fanbase who have so far failed to attract the lads’ attention.

Midnight Memories, the follow up to last year’s Take Me Home, is released on November 9 and is available to pre-order now.

“Midnight Memories” will feature the VMA-winning track “Best Song Ever” and will be available for pre-order beginning Sept. 9.
One Direction is continuing its momentum one week after the release of its Sony concert pic, This Is Us. The U.K.-based boy band on Friday announced the global release of its third studio album, Midnight Memories, for Nov. 25.
The album, available for pre-order on Sept. 9, will feature the hit MTV Video Music Award-winning song “Best Song Ever.” A full tracklist for the Syco/Columbia Records release was not revealed.
The album follows 2012′s Take Me Home and 2011′s Up All Night, both of which hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200. In making their announcement on Friday, One Direction used Instagram to post a video alongside the hashtag #1DAlbumTitle.
This Is Us was initially projected to win Labor Day weekend at the North American box office but ultimately came in No. 2 as Lee Daniels’ The Butler topped for the third week in a row. One Direction’s first big-screen offering, directed by Morgan Spurlock, boasts an A CinemaScore and brought in $18 million over the three-day weekend in the U.S. Overseas, the film opened to $14.5 million.
One Direction is composed of Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson. The group was formed in 2010 by Simon Cowell on The X Factor U.K. and while it didn’t win the competition, it has become the franchise’s greatest success story to date.
