One Direction Ready To Run


One Direction surprised fans by debuting their new song “Ready to Run,” following the announcement of their “#FOURTAKEOVER” challenge, which involved reaching certain goals on social media. The boy band took to YouTube on Thursday to explain that fans who pre-ordered their upcoming album “Four” would be given access to “Ready to Run” once the challenge was met.

After receiving the required 40,000 retweets on Twitter, 40,000 Facebook shares, 4,000 comments on Instagram and 4,000 reblogs on Tumblr, 1D tweeted, “You’ve done it! @iTunesMusic are releasing the track asap.” Fans went wild over the highly-anticipated release of “Ready to Run,” the lyrics of which include, “This time I’m ready to run/Escape from the city and follow the sun/Cause I wanna be yours, don’t you wanna be mine?/I don’t wanna get lost in the dark of the night this time/ I’m ready to run.”

“Ready to Run” is the second single off of the band’s upcoming “Four” album. In September, the group released its first song “Steal My Girl,” and then later its video, starring Danny DeVito. The album “Four” drop on November 17.
