One Direction slowed down on Sun. (Nov. 9) to hold a Google+ Hangout for their fans. With their upcoming album Four (out Nov. 17) on the horizon, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, and Zayn Malik took some time to open up about the new record, how they've changed in four years and any advice (to their former selves). Not only did they answer questions from host Ben Winston, but fans had the chance to submit questions and comments via numerous Twitter hashtags. Needless to say, Directioners completely took over the popular social media site with their unbridled excitement. After a lengthy chat about their new-found lives, the boys then shared footage of an acoustic performance of "Steal My Girl," the album's blockbuster lead single
Stripping down many of the production elements, 1D delivered the track with sincere passion and power.
Following "Steal My Girl," the band has announced "Night Changes" as the next radio release. As Popdust previously reported, songwriter Jamie Scott revealed the inspiration behind the tune: “One of the songs on the record came from myself falling out with Julian Bunetta and John Ryan. My studio is at my house where we record the record, so we all come to my house and we hang out, the boys come in. But these guys just work through the night, and one night, I came down to the studio, and three songs that I thought were sounding amazing when I left had been changed drastically through the night.” A fight then broke out.
He continued, “The song is nothing about that, but the idea and the word came from me coming in the morning, because you get a bit delirious and you never quite know what you’re doing. But it was fine and all was resolved and we had a great song title.”
