One Direction drops 'Ready to Run' single from 'Four'

Posted on

CS One Direction

The boys of One Direction are ready to make fans all googly-eyed (again) with “Ready to Run,” the new single from their upcoming album, Four.

The song follows the One Direction formula of stealing hearts with indie-pop harmonies. Swelling odes to an unspecified girl of their dreams? Check. Folksy, acoustic guitar in the background? Check. Exorbitantly earnest lyrics about running away? Check, times a million.

The band has steadily teased the release of its upcoming album, releasing their Danny Devito-cameo-ing music video for their other single from Four, “Steal My Girl,” last month.

Four is due out Nov. 17. via Syco/Columbia Records.
