The Capital Weekender With Ministry of Sound 10pm - 5am
1D have officially confirmed the title and release date for their brand new album, so here's everything we know about the band's LAST album before their break next year...
They announced the news this week, and from the sounds of it it’s involved some late-night recording studio sessions!
The band made ‘Infinity’ free to fans who have pre-ordered ‘Made In The A.M.’, giving them their second taste of new music from the record. Picture: Getty
The new 1D album is set to launch on 13th November. Not long to wait!
The boys surprise dropped 'Drag Me Down' as the record's lead single over the summer and it's proved one of their biggest hits to date.
We're expecting a LOT from the boys' next offering, and it sounds like they've been experimenting with their sound for #AlbumFive.
Next year the boys are planning a long break, so fans will need to make the most of this one! Picture: PA
Nicki told The Sun in June this year: “I do want to work with One Direction. I mean, of course, who wouldn’t? They’re cute!” We TOTALLY agree with you, Nicki! Picture: PA
Niall revealed to ET Online: "There's a few different sounds on the album, not all the songs sound the same. They are all kind of different. It's a lot different than what we did before." Picture: Splash
In mid-April the 1D boys confirmed work on #AlbumFive was officially underway, with Liam Payne tweeting fans to say they're in the studio writing new material for the record, which is confirmed to be released by the end of 2015.
It will be their first album in their new incarnation as a four-piece - will the absence of Mr Malik lead to a totally different sound?
According to The Sun, the boys were desperate to get the ball rolling on their new record, which makes us think they've got some tricks up their sleeves already. Picture: Instagram
Their 'On The Road Again' tour means the boys have been travelling the world together... Equalling a LOT of spare time for recording new tracks, right?
Well that would be PRETTY adorable, right? And of course, Niall could write a love song about HIS one true love... Food Picture: Getty
The band explained that the tracks were probably 'too odd' for the band, but that doesn't mean they might not pop up on 2015's record! They ARE constantly developing their sound, after all. Picture: Instagram
After their big X Factor performance with Ronnie Wood last year, the band have been separately working with a TON of musicians, so expect a few new sounds on album number 5! Picture: Instagram
No one could see THIS coming, but with Chad Kroeger teaching Louis and Liam how to play the drums, we can only imagine what else went down! Picture: Instagram
Juicy J featured on Katy Perry's HUGE hit 'Dark Horse', and has also worked with Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus. Now if he's helping out on some One Direction tracks, we reckon there will be a VERY different sound on the next album.
Ed's written for three out of four One Direction albums (he was sorely missed on 2013's 'Midnight Memories') so it wouldn't be surprising if he did it once again! After all, he IS good mates with the lads. Picture: Getty
1D will probably have to build themselves a new shelf for all the awards they're sure to scoop with their next album attempt. Picture: Getty
He's written for Ariana Grande and Meghan Trainor, and recently lyrics leaked from his session with Kodaline that read: "You, you give me something, what it is i just don’t know, but i feel like a time bomb ticking, and without you i might blow ". Kodaline have since confirmed that those were written by Haz, and now we are SO excited to hear what he writes for his own band!
