One Direction’s sophomore album Take Me Home is here – well kinda!

We’re not entirely sure if the leak was legitimate or a marketing ploy, but it doesn’t really matter – the important thing is that we have more One Direction music, right?! The vibe of the album is a little more mature than Up All Night, with the guys experimenting with guitar ballads. But that doesn’t mean they’ve forgotten why we love them – there’s plenty of danceable poptastic tracks and the sweetest lyrics you’ve ever heard.

And for some bonus 1D news, the guys will be performing on The X-Factor US THIS WEEK! Yep, they’re coming to LA to rock the stage on the live results show on Thursday night! In a statement, the guys talked about how excited they are about the performance. And Niall added, “It’ll be the first time we’ve performed in front of ‘Uncle Si’ since we were on UK X-Factor. So, hopefully we make him proud.” I’m pretty sure you’ve got nothing to worry about there 1D!

The full version of Take Me Home will officially drop on November 13 – yep, just ONE week!

So what do you think about the album leak? Or are you too excited about the new album and X-Factor performance to worry about it?
