One Direction Tease "Temporary Fix" & "Walking In The Wind"


With one week to go before One Direction releases its new album, Made in the A.M., on Nov. 13, the group has dropped the set's latest pre-release track, "History," on Nov. 6. The song raced to No. 1 on the real-time Billboard + Twitter Trending 140 hours after its arrival.

Anchored by an acoustic guitar and handclaps, "History" is accompanied by lyrics like, "You and me got a whole lot of history / so don't let it go / we can make some more / we can live forever," which lend themselves to a sing-along.

One Direction's Singles Ranked Worst to Best

As "History" ascends to No. 1, the U.K. lads preserve their "perfect" streak, with all of the album's released tracks -- "Drag Me Down," "Infinity," "Perfect" and "Home" - logging multiple hours in charge of the Trending 140 chart.

In addition, "Down" and "Perfect" topped the weekly Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks recap chart, for four weeks and one week, respectively. "Infinity" (No. 7) and "Home" (No. 8) likewise climbed into the chart's upper region.

Made in the A.M. follows the band's Four, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 last December, and marks the group's last release before they take an extended hiatus next year.
