One Direction score another massive hit Julie Broadfoot

One Direction’s new single, Live While We’re Young, has become the fastest selling pre-order single in history.

The boyband announced their new track on Thursday and by Friday it had topped the pre-order charts in 40 countries including UK, Australia, France, Spain, and Brazil.

Live While We’re Young will be released in the UK on September 30, and a day later in US and Canada.

The song was written by Savan Kotecha, Rami Yacoub and Carl Falk.

It has been described as “pop perfection - an immediate, energy packed song mixing rock undertones with smooth harmonies, about living for the moment”.

The track is from their second studio album, which is scheduled to be released in November.

One Direction are to start their sell-out world Tour in spring 2013 and this include nine dates at the O2 Arena in London.

Band member Louis Tomlinson wrote on twitter: “We want to say a massive thank you to you guys because we wouldn't be where we are today without you.”
