Watch: One Direction share Drag Me Down music video
Forget the music career, One Direction are looking pretty good as astronauts in their latest music video, Drag Me Down.
The band premiered the video for their first single as a four-piece, Drag Me Down, this morning (Friday 21 August), which sees them head into space.
The video, which was recorded at NASA Space Centre in Houston, Texas, features Harry, Louis, Niall and Liam looking pretty awesome in orange astronaut suits as they prepare to take off into the unknown.
Throughout the video, the boys undergo a series of space training – and obligatory singing to the camera – before they are sent into space. Cue lots of happy clapping and whooping.
The video has already reached over one and half million views after only a few hours of being online.

Drag Me Down is 1D’s first single without Zayn Malik, who left the band to pursue a solo career in March. The track charted at No.1 following its release in several countries, including the UK, and it will feature on their fifth album, which follows 2014’s Four.
Meanwhile, Directioners will be able to hear Drag Me Down live soon as One Direction will tour the UK and Ireland in September and October. Fingers crossed they’ll keep their astronaut outfits for the tour.
1D’s live dates will include shows at The O2 arena, Manchester Arena, Glasgow’s The SSE Hydro, Birmingham’s Barclaycard Arena, Belfast’s Odyssey Arena, Newcastle’s Metro Radio Arena, Sheffield Motorpoint Arena and Dublin’s 3Arena. Tickets are now on sale for their tour.
