One Direction to release debut single in June
April 6th, 2011 by Jessica Martinez
X Factor finalists One Direction have confirmed during an appearance on The Alan Titchmarsh Show that they will release their debut single in June.
The boys were originally expected to bring out their debut much earlier, but they confirmed a summer release during a chat with Titchmarsh on Monday.
18-year-old Zain Malik – reported to be dating fellow contestant Rebecca Ferguson – told the gardener-turned-TV-presenter: ‘We’re looking to release in the summer, in June sometime. We just want to make a massive track to start off with and see where it goes from there,’ band mate Liam Payne added.
The delay may be down to a hands-off approach by Simon Cowell, after the boys recently revealed they rarely get to see their mentor.
Or it might be that the boys have simply been too busy to finalise the track – they have been travelling the UK with the X Factor Live Tour, and even released their own autobiography in February.
