The band have brought forward the release of their new song and you can hear it first on Capital.
One Direction have said they "can't wait" for their fans to hear their new song 'Live While We're Young'.
The track was meant to debut next week, but will now air today (20th September) on Capital FM after a poor quality version of the song and video emerged online.
The song will now go to radio at 5pm (GMT) followed by the 'Live While We're Young' video's release at 6pm (GMT).
Of their decision to bring the track's debut forward, One Direction said: "We wanted our fans to see the video and hear the single in the proper way so we've moved the premiere to tonight.
"We're really excited about LWWY, we've worked really hard on it and we can't wait for everyone to see and hear it later today!"
'Live While We're Young' is the first single to be taken from One Direction's upcoming second album 'Take Me Home', which is released on 12th November.
One Direction have been working on the follow-up to their debut album 'Up All Night' for the past several months, and are reported to have worked with songwriters including 'Lego House' star Ed Sheeran.
The single was released via pre-order earlier this month and immediately became the fastest selling pre-order single in history. It will officially be release on 30th September.
