At the end of the Where We Are Tour, One Direction fans had been anxiously awaiting the boys’ new EP Four. The CD dropped November 17, 2014. Many fans were in shock, because of how different the album was from 1D’s usual songs, myself included. The boys have mentioned multiple times that as they grow, their music grows with them; this can be proven by many songs on the EP. Most of their songs are what I would call “bubblegum pop”, so it was shocking to see how much their musical sound has grown since their third album, Midnight Memories.

 

1D's album " Four"  was released on 14, November, 2014 on the Columbia/Syco label.
1D’s album ” Four” was released on 14, November, 2014 on the Columbia/Syco label.

 

The new EP includes their hit singles Steal My Girl and Night Changes, but also includes some of the lesser known songs such as Clouds, Spaces, or Stockholm Syndrome. Personally, I feel that the album has an indie rock pop sound to it, which I find very enjoyable. The songs talk about love, without being a stereotypical love song. A lot of the songs are very relatable and you can tell a lot about the band by paying close attention to the lyrics. I think we can expect a lot from 1D in 2015… The boys have announced their On The Road Again Tour, and will be touring all around North America (again). Very excited to see what this tour holds for us!!
