After the devastating news that original One Direction member, Zayn Malik had left the group, Directioners were at a crossroad wondering just how the band would adapt to the departure. Turned out, that almost as fast as Malik announced his departure, the rest of the band continued forward and released their first new single sans him; “Drag Me Down.”
Now, a couple of weeks after the song was released, the band has given their loyal fan base the music video for the song. The music video finds the four-piece heading to NASA to train to be astronauts. Since becoming an astronaut is not as easy as we all think, the boys go through several training sessions before they are able to finally get into their space craft, which they do at the end of the video, and launch into space to explore the “final frontier.”
Check out the music video for “Drag Me Down” below and try not get that feeling you did as a little kid when you would tell people you wanted to become and astronaut.
As of now, there’s no word on when a new One Direction record is set to be released, though “Drag Me Down” is the official lead single off of the yet-to-be-titled fifth studio album. Apparently, there’s some speculation that it might be heading our way sometime in the fall. Until then, Directioners will have to wait.
