Moments after the release of the song, Liam Payne tweeted, “Bit of a surprise ! Check out our new single! It’s called Drag Me Down & I hope you love it as much as we do.” Niall Horan noted, “Finally we get to say this ! have waited a long time but our new single Drag Me Down is out.” “We wanted you guys to have our new single first so here it is,” added Louis Tomlinson, while Harry Styles simply tweeted a link to the song on iTunes.
One Direction is currently on the American leg of its “On The Road Tour,” and is set to perform on Friday at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana, followed by a show on Sunday at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It’s expected the band will perform “Drag Me Down” at those concerts, and will include the new track on its upcoming fifth album.
This marks the first song the remaining four band members have released since Zayn Malik quit the group in March. As Gossip Cop previously reported, Simon Cowell predicts the band’s next album will be “the best record they’ve ever made.”
