Harry Styles Announces New Album, I Briefly Panic That He’s Leaving One Direction

One Direction Midnight Memories announcement September 2013I hope everyone’s ready for a mini heart attack, because tricksy old Harry Styles just gave me one in 140 characters or less. He posted an announcement to his Twitter that heralded an album coming out later this year, and I completely misinterpreted it . It went a little something like this:


A perfectly normal announcement, I think you’ll agree. But as a human being who recently took herself to see ‘This Is Us’ which, yes, is a movie about One Direction and no, is not intended for twenty-six year olds, I was like NO HARRY HOW DARE YOU DON’T GO SOLO WE NEED YOU. I just just juuuuuust really started embracing my embarrassing love for the 1D lads, so how could you abandon them?

But nay. It was all an overreaction, because it was just an announcement of the band’s next album, called Midnight Memories. I’m not the hugest fan of the title, because it sounds like a cheesy slumber party mix that I would’ve made in middle school, but I’ll grudgingly accept it because I’m assuming the boys can pull it off. On account of how disgustingly charming and adorable they are in every way.

Also, was everyone other than me aware that this is their third album already? Jeepers. Considering they were just created in 2011 and became famous almost instantly, they haven’t been wasting any time. You can already pre-order the album this Monday, September 9th, and like Harry said, it’ll be out in a little under three months, right around Thanksgiving. Let’s hope it’s not a turkey!

I…I’m sorry. I’ll show myself out.

      Uhhh didn’t their second album just come out? Jeez, they should give their fans, like, a day or something to save up some money.

        I think they know that this level of fame can’t sustain itself. Maybe they’re right to keep crushing it while people are interested.

        That’s a really good point, actually.

      Girl, you are 26, I’m 24. I love 1D. There’s actually a group on tumblr of girls over the age of 20 that all love 1D :) Called OBLT. :) It’s like our own little community.

        What does the acronym stand for?

        I was so opposed to them at first, but I’ve given up. They’re so great.
