It looks like One Direction mania will continue well into the fall and a new CD may land in more than a few Christmas stockings. The British-Irish boy band announced today that their second album Take Me Home will be released in the US November 13, 2012 and revealed the album cover art (at right). "Live While We're Young," the first single from the new album, will be available for digital download October 1. Estimations for worldwide music sales for One Direction stand at 12 million. "Live While We're Young" holds the honor of being the fastest selling pre-order of a digital single in history. Among those working with the group on the new album are Dr. Luke, Ed Sheeran, and Toby Gad.
