One Direction Premieres ‘Live While We’re Young’ (VIDEO)

One Direction fans, the boys are back!

The Brits dropped the video for their new single “Live While We’re Young” a week early, after an unauthorized version of the video hit the web on Thursday.

Seemingly inspired by the music festivals the boys like to frequent, “Live While We’re Young” sees Niall HoranLiam PayneLouis TomlinsonHarry Styles and Zayn Malik having a jolly good time singing songs by the camp fire, playing around in paddle boats and playing soccer (er, football?).

“Live While We’re Young” is the first single from their upcoming sophomore album, Take Me Home, and it could be their catchiest. How is that even possible? Let’s examine the evidence.

“Let’s go crazy crazy crazy ’til we see the sun/ I know that we just met but let’s pretend it’s love/ And never never never stop for anyone/ Tonight let’s get some, and live while we’re young,” resident ladies man Styles croons on the chorus. For the song’s full lyrics, visit Direct Lyrics.

The boys also enjoy a romp around in the kiddie pool, as Horan goes shirtless and Styles shows off his fresh ink through his soaked white t-shirt. Giant inflatable microphones — and bananas — are also involved. In other words, it’s every bit as epic as 1D fans were anticipating it would be.

Take Me Home is slated to be released on Nov. 13, 2012. In spring 2013, One Direction will begin their sold-out world tour in the U.K., which includes nine shows at London’s O2 Arena.
