One Direction Releases Story of My Life

October 30, 2013


There’s no doubt about it, 2013 has become all about the music. With thousands of songs that constantly get stuck in our head, there’s a musical number to go with every situation. On October 28, 2013, world famous boyband, One Direction, released their newest single, Story of My Life, on iTunes. With a past composed of successful tracks, including “What Makes You Beautiful,” and “Best Song Ever,” we’re expecting “Story of My Life” to be just as successful as the group’s previous records.

Superstars Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson have captured the attention of girls all over the world. It’s no surprise that the track has topped the charts in the United States, Canada, the UK, Denmark, Ireland, and many more countries. The four-minute track portrays a genuine progression toward a sound that will expand the boy’s popularity beyond their Directioners fan base. With lyrics like “Written in these walls are the stories that I can’t explain, I leave my heart open but it stays right here empty for days,” and “but baby running after you is like chasing the clouds,” the ballad shows off One Direction’s true potential.


As the boys continue to mature, they’re all either entering their twenties or already there, their music continues to mature with them. The track portrays the boy’s range and the depth of their potential. The ballad isn’t like their usual catchy pop tunes that get stuck in your head for hours on end, even if you don’t consider yourself a fan. We’ve posted the audio to “Story of My Life” below so be sure to check that out, especially if you’re not necessarily a fan of the group, you might find yourself bobbing your head along to the melody.

The boys of One Direction are releasing their new album, Midnight Memories, on November 25th but you don’t have to wait until then to hear what the boys have to offer. The debut of “Story of My Life,” is just the beginning. New songs will also be released on November 18th, November 20th and November 22nd. Simon Cowell, the man responsible for putting the five guys together, is ready for the future projects associated with “Story of My Life.” The X Factor USA judge tweeted that the “Story of My Life” video is the best one to day. We’re excited to see how the video came out so definitely keep your eyes open for the release date announcement.
