Those of you going through prolonged bouts of the shakes from a lack of One Direction in your lives don't have too long to wait for your next fix.

The lads' next single 'Steal My Girl' will be released at the end of the month, the first single from their fourth album called, er, 'Four'.

The track was written by 1D's Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne (along with a host of other hired hands) and, according to advance word from the One Direction camp, features "cascading stadium piano chords". So that'll be a number one single, then...

'Four' will be released in the middle of November in SYCO/Columbia and is expected to continue the success of their previous releases 'Up All Night', 'Take Me Home' and last year's 'Midnight Memories'.
