'Fireproof' was written by Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne, with songwriters John Ryan, Jamie Scott and Julian Bunetta - the team behind 1D's hit 'Story of My Life'.

Niall said of the new track, "Because you have supported us so much, we wanted to give a little something back."

FOUR is the quick-fire follow-up to last year's Midnight Memories - the UK's biggest selling album of 2013. The record also made One Direction the first band in history to debut at the top of the US Billboard chart with their first three albums.
