One Direction Release Nostalgic "History" Video
Wed, 27 Jan 2016 13:59:08
One Direction goes through its "History" in the video for their newest single. Starting with a shot from the band's beginnings on The X Factor (including now-departed Zayn Malik), the video peels back the years, stitching together shots of the then-teenaged boys on tour, doing press shoots, and behind-the-scenes interactions. The now-foursome appears against a brick wall singing the folksy song about not giving up on love.
Member Liam Payne recently tweeted about how the song is really a tribute to the fans, "So happy everyone's enjoying history it's like the fandoms theme tune/anthem." "History" is, for all intents and purposes, the fifth single off One Direction's fifth studio album Made in the A.M. (Columbia, Syco), which was released last November.
It is not known whether One Direction is still on its eighteen-month hiatus or if the rumors about a permanent split are true, but a source reported to Billboard, "Nothing has changed regarding hiatus plans for the group, and all will be revealed in due time from the band members' own mouths." The band last appeared together December 31, 2015 on Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve.
