Last night, while we were in bed and busy sleeping, the boys of One Direction announced the date of their fifth album's release. It'll going to be out on November 13, but if you pre-order it starting today, you'll get their song "Infinity" already.

Many of you were probably wondering why the album was given the title Made in the A.M., but we didn't really overthink it. Maybe they've been staying up until the early hours of the morning, trying to finish everything for their fifth album before they went to bed? Or maybe they just made most of it in the morning unlike their previous albums? However, one fan made this post. (via

Hmm. Seems odd if that was the actual meaning. The boys have been repeating it over and over again that no matter what roads they take and even if Zayn left the group, they're going to be brothers for life. We think they're really just referring to the time of day they finished the album. No drama at all.

Got a lot of feelings about 1D today? Don't worry, we're here and you can talk to us. Leave your thoughts in the comments for us to see. :)
