One Direction Reveal 'Take Me Home' Album Artwork

Niall Horan explains the concept behind the red phone box here...

One Direction have unveiled the artwork for their second album, Take Me Home.

After band member Harry Styles teased Directioners with a snap of Liam Payne from the LP yesterday (30th August), the boys have now revealed the full front cover in all its glory.

The artwork sees 1D larking about with an iconic red telephone box - proving that while they continue to take the world by storm, the UK is still very much close to their hearts.

Niall Horan has addressed this concept when discussing the album title, telling Ryan Seascrest on his KIIS-FM show: "We thought about it for a while because we all would do a lot of travelling around the world and we get to see a lot of cool places, but the main thing is there's no place like home. It's always kind of nice to go home."

The Irish singer also revealed that their sophomore LP is "not too different" from The X Factor group's debut album Up All Night, adding: "We've been very, very happy about it, because we're obviously nervous - the second album you never know what you're going to get from it.

"But we're really excited about it. It's really fun, very heavy on guitars and drums, so we're super excited about it."

Take Me Home is set for release on 12th November and will hit US stores a day later.

As well as showing off the artwork for their new album, 1D have also confirmed that single Live While We're Young will premiere on radio stations worldwide on Monday 24th September.

The track has already become the fastest-selling pre-order single in history, hitting No.1 in over 50 countries within hours of going on sale.

Live While We're Young will be released on 30th September in the UK, and 1st October in the US and Canada.
