What’s that, you say? “Infinity” isn’t even a single? Well, yes, that’s true. As Directioners may recall, the band originally announced the soaring ballad as the third single from Made In The A.M., before backtracking and replacing it with fan-favorite jam “History.”
Before switching gears with that (admittedly on-point) decision, though, the guys had already filmed a video for “Infinity.” In new footage leaked Wednesday (Jan. 6), we see Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson in front of a massive backdrop featuring 1D fan art (awww!), lip-syncing their hearts out while “Infinity” plays in the background.
More pics, supposedly shot by lurking paparazzi, continue to paint the scene.
And one eagle-eyed fan noticed part of the scenery was used in the guys' final performance before their hiatus, on "The X Factor" last month.
Soooooo, now that we’ve all seen what the vid was supposed to look like, does that mean 1D’s camp will decide to release the finished version? And is a “History” video on the way as well? That’d surely be the kind thing to do, but I’m actually hoping the band waits a bit longer to release any new vids. After all, fans have an entire year of 1D absence to endure, and a new music video or two might make for a good mid-year treat to pick our spirits up and remind us of what we already know: We’re the greatest team that the world has ever seen.
