One Direction released the second song from their forthcoming fifth album on Tuesday, just after announcing the album’s name and release date. Called “Infinity,” it’s now available as an instant download when pre-ordering the new album, Made In The A.M., out Nov. 13.
Written by John Ryan, Jamie Scott, and Julian Bunetta, the team behind One Direction’s smash hit “Story Of My Life,” the track debuted on streaming services shortly after it was announced, and features lyrics like, “How many nights does it take to count the stars? That’s the time it would take to fix my heart/ Oh baby, I was there for you, all I ever wanted was the truth.”
Bunetta spoke to EW about the new album earlier this year and said that the band was “experimenting a little with different instrumentation.” He added that the album includes more “strings and horns” and said, “We’re stretching out outside of the perimeters of what a traditional pop boy band would do.”
“Infinity” follows “Drag Me Down,” the first single from the collection, which was the band’s first released song without Zayn Malik, who left the band in March. Soon after, he signed a solo contract with RCA Records.
