Get ready, Directioners! One Direction are slated to release their new video for “Midnight Memories” on Friday, director Ben Winston confirmed. And if you can’t wait that long, the group has dropped some preview images on their Tumblr to hold you over.
From the looks of it, the video will include the group taking over London late at night; dancing through the streets and riding around on scooters, as well as kissing the hands of some very lucky senior citizens.
In addition to the outside antics, the fivesome also will get some late-night eats in a crowded kebab restaurant. And if you ever wondered if Liam Payne could chow down, this will be the video he proves he’s got quite the appetite.
Winston previously worked with the guys on the videos for “Best Song Ever” (which won a VMA) and “Story of My Life,” also off their 2013 album Midnight Memories. The guys shot the clip in London in December when they were spotted on the Tower Bridge.
Over the weekend, Liam and Louis Tomlinson (who both co-wrote the track) expressed their excitement about the upbeat single.
“This is the first song that we wrote on this album, so this kind of, it paved the way this whole album’s sound. It’s a big, big tune,” Liam shared in a YouTube announcement.
So so excited about Midnight Memories being a single. We are very proud of it ! http://t.co/27LMDbQ1E1

While they are prepping the release of their new single, the guys are also thinking about their next album. Niall Horan revealed the guys are already heading into the studio to begin work on their fourth album. Additional information about the new music is still very top secret so fans will just have to watch the “Midnight Memories” video when it drops later this week to get their 1D fix in the meantime.
