We’re still a little over two months away from hearing new music from One Direction, and yet the anticipation for their latest project has reached its apex.
After announcing the first single, “Live While We’re Young,” from the band’s upcoming second album on Thursday, the track has become the fastest-selling pre-order in iTunes history. And it’s not even available in the United States! This is nothing new for 1D, who are used to slashing sales records and hitting number one, but the achievement has proven the boys still know how to graciously thank their fans from the bottom of their hearts, and humblebrag with the best of them:
