One Direction bring forward ‘Live While We’re Young’ premiere after leak

It was due to premiere in just four days time but now, due to an unauthorised version of the song being leaked, One Direction were forced to unveil  'Live While We're Young' this evening.

One Direction premiered LWWY earlier this evening

The low quality leak of the song hit the internet this morning leading to the boy's label Syco/Sony making the decision to bring the premiere forward to today.

The band even sent out a message to their fans this afternoon via Twitcam to announce the change in release plans.

The boys said: "We wanted our fans to see the video and hear the single in the proper way so we've moved the premiere to tonight."

"We're really excited about 'Live While We're Young', we've worked really hard on it and we can't wait for everyone to see and hear it later today!"

If you haven't seen the video yet or simply fancy re-watching it for the 37th time, here it is in all its 1D glory:

So, do the fans approve of the track?

Well if Twitter is anything to go by we'd say the boys have another smash hit on their hands.

Within minutes of the song premiering, #LWWY was trending worldwide.

The song itself reminds us of the boy's first single 'That's What Makes You Beautiful' interlaced with the 'Woah oh oh oh' of Britney Spears' 'Till the World Ends'.

In other words, it's one hell of a catchy tune.
