The band's sophomore record is scattered in the World Wide Web and fans are streaming the full album even before its official release on November 13.
The curiosity of eager fans proved to be a force to reckon especially for a very in-demand and hot boy band with a much-hyped up new album. Such is the reality that faced British-Irish boy band One Direction as their "Take Me Home" LP gets ripped-off and passed around over the Internet prior to its official release on November 13.
Though the "Live While We're Young" hitmakers already heeded to fans' clamor for their new songs in "Take Me Home" and offered a full stream of the album today on iTunes, it was still not enough to stop people from uploading all 13 songs in sites like YouTube.
Fans have already taken to different social media sites and have voiced out their thoughts about the album leaks. While some are very pleased to finally get their ears on the new 1D music and listen to "Take Me Home" in its entirety, some are also disgruntled about the issue saying it was a disrespectful act. This is not the first time the boys have to deal with song leaks. "Live While We're Young" also fell victim to online leak back when it was about to be released.
Amidst all the stardom, the controversy, and their music being released sooner that expected, One Direction still managed to put their best foot forward and confirm their appearance for "The X Factor (US)" on Thursday, November 8 when the program broadcasts its first live results show of the season.
"We're really excited to be on the American 'X Factor', " member Niall Horan gushed. "It'll be the first time we've performed in front of 'Uncle Si' since we were on the U.K. 'X Factor.' So, hopefully, we'll make him proud!"
