One Direction's new album FOUR may have actually leaked late last night, but there are quite a few Directioners who are out there waiting for the official release of the 1D record. For those of you who are noble and waiting, today (Nov. 10), the "Steal My Girl" band rewarded you with the release of the new song "Where Do Broken Hearts Go."
In a video announcement on the official One Direction YouTube account, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson announce that those who pre-ordered FOUR will now receive an instant download of "Where Do Broken Hearts Go" on iTunes.
"Where Do Broken Go" continues 1D's heavy '80s pop influence, sounding not wholly unlike Belinda Carlisle's "Heaven is a Place on Earth." Heavy synth beats, perfectly planned pauses and the epic, high harmonies in One Direction's chorus help to add to the throwback sound.
"Now I'm searching in a lonely place / Every corner calling out your name / Trying to find you but I just don't know / Where do broken hearts go," One Direction sing in the bombastic chorus, channeling their best Journey impression all the while.
