Because on unauthorized copy of One Direction’s “Live While We’re Young” music video made its way illegally online, the group and Columbia Records decided to up the official release of the video to today. That’s only a four day difference between when it was supposed to go live online and today, but four days to fans of the boy band adds up to a huge amount of hours they no longer have to patiently endure.
“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 ‘Live While We’re Young,’ we’ve worked really hard on it and we can’t wait for everyone to see and hear it later today!” – One Direction
The single off of the upcoming Take Me Home album debuted on radio stations today followed an hour later by the release of the video on VEVO. Pre-orders are now available for the group’s second album which drops on November 13, 2012.
