One Direction announce fourth album and new single, fans FREAK out

Fans “can’t breathe”.

EARLIER TODAY, ONE Direction teased that it might be a big week.

And when Kate Middleton announced that she was pregnant with her second child, it seemed like they might be on to something.

But then, they went and one-upped Kate with two announcements that sent Directioners into a frenzy.

In a video recorded for fans, the group announced that (a) their new album Four will be released on November 17th and (b) they are giving away their new single Fireproof away for free on their website for 24 hours.

The album, named Four, is so-called because it is the group’s fourth album. Deep.

Obviously the announcement has broken the internet, even surpassing the royal baby.


Naturally, fans are freaking out and unable to breathe.

Cue a stream of tweets written in ALL CAPS.

God bless.
