After teasing "Story of My Life" with a short snippet a few days ago, One Direction has officially debuted their newest single. The new track opens with the British/Irish boyband singing some heartbreaking lyrics over a Mumford & Sons-esque guitar arrangement.
The song builds to the chorus. "The story of my life I take her home/ I drive all night to keep her warm and time/ Is frozen/ The story of my life I give her hope/ I spend her love until she's broke inside/ The story of my life," the boys sing.
"Story of My Life" is taken from One Direction's newest album, "Midnight Memories", which is set to arrive on November 25 via Sony Music Entertainment. The new track serves as the follow-up to lead single "Best Song Ever", which peaked at No. 2 on Billboard 100 earlier this year.
Member Niall Horan has claimed that "Story of My Life" is his favorite track off his and his bandmates' third studio effort. He tweeted, "I think story of my life is my favorite song on midnight memories!"
Before releasing their forthcoming record, One Direction is slated to perform at 2013 American Music Awards which will be aired live on ABC from Los Angeles' Nokia Theatre on November 24 at 8 P.M..
The boys haven't confirmed which song they will play, but they are expected to perform some new material from "Midnight Memories" album.
