One Direction's new single is called 'Live While We're Young'.

The boy band announced via a YouTube video that the first release from their second album will be available for pre-order on iTunes from midnight tonight (23.08.12).

Louis Tomlinson thanked fans for their loyal support in the short clip, saying: ''We wanted to say a massive thank you to you guys because we wouldn't be where we are without you.''

The group teased fans earlier in the day about a ''big announcement'' dropping at 1pm and subsequently shared their excitement about the track on twitter.

Harry Styles wrote: ''The new single 'Live While We're Young' will be here soon! Hope you like it .xx (sic)''

Niall Horan added: ''Now you've heard the name of the first single! Cannot wait for you to hear the song itself now! (sic)''

Teen sensations 1D - also made up of Zayn Malik and Liam Payne - will release their second studio album and follow-up to smash commercial success 'Up All Night' this December.

The 'One Thing' hitmakers shot to fame on 'The X Factor' in 2010 and have since achieved international recognition.
