One Direction spoke to Digital Spy about their frustration over the recent leak of their newest album, Midnight Memories. The album is set for release on November 25th, but a full version was leaked online on the 18th. The boys expressed their concerns about the possible outcome of this action. “It is annoying because there’s this big build-up and it affects sales,” said Liam Payne. He continued, “we really want a number one, so we’re just kind of hoping for the best now. Hopefully people go out and buy it.” Well, if the boys’ history gives us any indication of the upcoming albums fate, they will be just fine. However, this event raises a privacy issue: Should artists feel safe after completeing a project that their work will be available for purchase designated date, despite the project’s demand? Louis Tomlinson commented on fan loyalty regarding this issue: “Some select fans won’t listen to it until it’s out, which is great. But there are others who obviously can’t help themselves.” He agreed with Payne and said "It's just frustrating when you work so hard on an album and you kind of want everyone to hear it at the same time.” Harry Styles provided a more sympathetic response, and said “If there was an album I liked and I could listen to it a week before, I probably would.” He then added, “It’s just nice to have that moment where it builds up to, ‘Now it’s out and everyone can listen to it.” Payne concluded: "It happens these days all the time. There are some very clever people out there. You're buggers!" Midnight Memories features their hit singles 'Best Song Ever' and 'Story Of My Life', as well as promo cut 'Diana', which was officially released yesterday.
