Here at Hollywire, we’re clearly fans of song covers, but if One Direction doesone, well, it just feels too good to be true.
But it’s not –- it totally happened.
The fellas recently took on Blondie’s classic “One Way or Another” in support of Red Nose Day, the same charity that sent them to Accra, Ghana last month. While the full version of the song isn’t quite recently for listen yet, the 30-second teaser is holding us over just a tad bit longer!

1D stuck to the original for their cover, giving us a good mix of pop and punk rock. (Well, as much punk rock as we would expect from One Direction.)
Harry Styles recently dished on being a part of the UK charity, saying, “Growing up with Red Nose Day was such a big deal –- we used to really look forward to it being a non-school uniform day! Going to Ghana and seeing what a different the money makes was an incredible experience. We are more determined than ever to raise as much as possible for people who really need our help.”
We’ll have to wait just a bit longer to hear the full version of 1D’s cover – it’ll be released February 17th!
What did you think of One Direction’s Blondie cover? Should they go down the punk pop route with their music?
