“One Direction: Where We Are: Our Band, Our Story,” will hit retailers on August 27, just days before the opening of their 3-D flick “This Is Us.” Released by HarperCollins, it is the “only official book from 1D charting their journey.” The cover (which the guys shared Tuesday on Twitter) keeps it simple, with the five guys rocking casual couture in front of an all-white background.
The news comes one week after the fivesome announced their 2014 stadium world tour, Where We Are , which kicks off on April 25 in Colombia. U.S. dates are slated to be announced sometime in the future. Fans will notice that the book and this 2014 tour have the same name, perhaps giving some insight into the theme for the next chapter of 1D.
Additionally, the guys have confirmed they have been hard at work on their third album , rumored to drop by the holidays. “[We] had the chance to work with a lot of great writers and stuff, but we just made it a bit more edgier,” Liam Payne said about the album last week. “Just subtle changes here and there so it kind of grows as we grow.”
