One Direction released a new song from their upcoming fifth album following their announcement of the album’s title and release date.
The song, titled “Infinity,” is the second track from the forthcoming “Made in the A.M” album which is set to roll out on Nov. 13.
One Direction made the announced on their official social media sites.
“Infinity,” which is now available for pre-order, follows “Drag Me Down” which is the first single from the new record. It was also 1D’s first released song without Zayn Malik, who left the band in March.
“Infinity” features lyrics like, “How many nights does it take to count the stars? That’s the time it would take to fix my heart/ Oh baby, I was there for you, all I ever wanted was the truth.”
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, One Direction producer and songwriter Julian Bunetta spoke about the album and said the band was “experimenting a little with different instrumentation.” He added that they have been “stretching out outside of the perimeters of what a traditional pop boy band would do.”
Liam Payne told MTV how special “Made In The A.M.” is for them. He revealed that in doing the album, they got a chance to collaborate with each other like never before.
“I think the best thing about this album is that we all kind of went off, away in a different direction actually, and wrote with a lot of different people and then kind of brought it all together. So I guess that’s why it’s our favorite — because it’s the most we’ve ever written together, which is nice,” he said.
“Made In The A.M.” will be the last for 1D for now before Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles, and Niall Horan go on a hiatus starting March of next year.
The boy band denied reports that the group is splitting up but confirmed that they will take a break next year.
PEOPLE magazine noted that this would mean they will not tour behind the official release of “Made In The A.M.” and may only promote it through February.
Bunetta told Billboard last month, the decision to go on hiatus was not a spontaneous one. “There was a lot of them not knowing if they were going to take a break or not, because that wasn’t decided just yesterday,” he said.
The four members knew it would be their last for a while when they recorded “Made In The A.M.” album, Bunetta added.
