One Direction 2012: Dr Luke says 1D’s next single is brilliant and ‘not uptempo’
One Direction haven’t even officially released the first single – Live While We’re Young – from their second album – Take Me Home – yet but it seems that their team are hard at work on it’s follow up.
The band will release LWWY at the end of this month, with the album following in mid November and super producer Dr Luke has revealed that fans are in for a real treat with their new material.
The man behind songs such as Katy Perry’s “I Kissed A Girl”, K$sha’s “TikTok” and Miley Cyrus’ “Party In The USA” has been working with Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson and he thinks the next single will be an “instant hit.”
Speaking about the new track, Luke told MTV:
“I’m finishing up the mix today.”
“It’s not uptempo!”
Explaining who was behind the track, the music pro added:
“It’s a song that some of my writers came up with. I heard it, and I loved it. I was like, ‘Wow, this is so good!’ I’m pleased to be part of it.”
“It’s nice when you hear music and you immediately like it.”
Luke couldn’t have been more positive about the lads either. He raved about the X Factor stars saying:
“They’re a huge phenomenon, and they’re good!
However, he hasn’t yet been able to hear the boys sing live or even meet them in person. It seems that someone just sent the vocals to the producer for him to work his magic, as he continued:
“I haven’t been able to meet them yet!”
One Direction began work on Take Me Home in May 2012, and were joined in the studio by Carl Falk, Rami Yacoub, Savan Kotecha, Ed Sheeran and Tom Fletcher at various points throughout the summer.
The album is set to be released on 12 November 2012 and will be preceded by lead single, “Live While We’re Young”, which is set for release on 30 September 2012.
“Live While We’re Young” has already become the fastest-selling pre-order single in history, topping the advance sales charts in 40 countries, including the UK, New Zealand, Australia, Italy, Spain, France, Singapore, Brazil and Mexico.
