One Direction surprised fans by releasing a new single overnight.
"Drag Me Down" is the first song that the four remaining band members--Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson--have released since Zayn Malik abruptly quit in March. Julian Bunetta, John Ryan and Jamie Scott wrote the song; Ryan and Bunetta produced the track.
The single is available to buy on iTunes and to stream on Spotify.
The release of "Drag Me Down" comes days after Malik signed a solo contract.
The band dished on its new single via Twitter.
One Direction is currently on tour in the United States, and the multiplatinum pop group will return to the U.K. in September. The X Factor U.K.-created band's fifth studio album will be released in November.
