One Direction Make Up For Canceling Concert With Surprise Release Of New Song ‘Home’ — Listen

You guys, this is NOT a drill — One Direction has already released ANOTHER new song! The band may have had to abruptly cancel their concert on Oct. 20, but they made it up to fans with their brand new track, ‘Home.’ Listen here!

One Direction is absolutely KILLIN’ it lately. Everyone is still buzzing over their new single, “Perfect,” and they’re not slowing down. The B-side to the Perfect EP, which features a brand new song “Home,” was released on Spotify on Oct. 20, and it’s — obviously — incredible. You HAVE to listen to it here!

Louis Tomlinson, 23, and Liam Payne, 22, wrote the song with songwriter Jamie Scott, and it came out just hours after the group dropped their new video for “Perfect.” AND their new album comes out on Nov. 13, so yeah…we’re going to be in complete 1D mode for the next few weeks!

The release was perfect timing for fans…especially those in Belfast. The guys had to cancel their Oct. 20 show in Ireland because Liam fell suddenly ill beforehand, so this was the perfect way to make up for any disappointment.

 

Of course, the whole situation was obviously out of their control. “Unfortunately One Direction have had to cancel tonight’s concert in Belfast,” a rep for the band told HollywoodLife.com. “Liam has been taken suddenly ill, and the concert will sadly not be taking place. Fans have been asked to hold onto their tickets and there will be a further statement tomorrow. The band apologize to their fans and wish Liam well as soon as possible.”

Luckily, just one day later, the 22-year-old was feeling much, better, and the band rescheduled the show for Friday night. “I’m so sorry to everybody I disappointed last night,” he wrote. “I’m feeling better now. I really hope everyone can make the rescheduled date on Friday. Thank you so much for all the trends and lovely messages you guys did for me it really shows how amazing u guys actually are. As I said I’m feeling much better now and I really can’t wait to perform and make it up to everyone later.”

Check out the lyrics to “Home” here:

Make a little conversation
So long I’ve been waiting
To let go of myself and feel alive
So many nights I thought it over
Told myself I kind of liked her
But there was something missing in her eyes

I was stumbling, looking in the dark
With an empty heart
But you say you feel the same
Could we ever be enough?
Baby we could be enough

And it’s alright
Calling out for somebody to hold tonight
When you’re lost, you’ll find a way
I’ll be your light
You’ll never feel like you’re alone
I’ll make this feel like home

So hot that I couldn’t take it
Want to wake up and see your face
And remember how good it was being here last night
Still high with a little feeling
I see the smile as it starts to creep in
It was there, I saw it in your eyes

I was stumbling, looking in the dark
With an empty heart
But you say you feel the same
Could we ever be enough?
Baby we could be enough

And it’s alright
Calling out for somebody to hold tonight
When you’re lost, you’ll find a way
I’ll be your light
You’ll never feel like you’re alone
I’ll make this feel like home
I’ll make this feel like home
Baby we could be enough
It’s alright
Calling out for somebody to hold tonight
When you’re lost, you’ll find a way
I’ll be your light
You’ll never feel like you’re alone
I’ll make this feel like home

HollywoodLifers, what do you think of “Home”?
