It’s been a while since we’ve heard new music from One Direction. Currently in the middle of their Take Me Home Tonight Tour, the band released “Best Song Ever” days before its scheduled release after it leaked earlier this week online.

While fans have to wait until Monday (July 22) for the “Best Song Ever” video, they can hear the track in its entirety below. The single also was released to radio stations everywhere today (July 19) following the leak.

Detailing a fun night of dancing and music, “Best Song Ever” embodies the familiar pop sensibilities and catchy “oh-oh-oh’s” for which One Direction has come to be known. On the track, the band sings, “We danced all night to the best song ever/We knew every line now I can’t remember/How it goes but I know that I won’t forget her/Because we danced all night to the best song ever.”

The track was produced by Julian Bunetta, who talked with MTV about the song’s striking resemblance to The Who classic “Baba O’Riley.”

“It starts with a synth and ‘Baba O’Riley’ starts with a synth,” he noted. “I mean that’s a huge compliment because if that can evoke that same excitement than that’s amazing but that was not the… we weren’t saying ‘OK, let’s rip off ‘Baba O’Riley’.’”

He added: “At a certain point we recognized it had the same type of intro where there’s a synth and a piano, but we really tried to make sure that there was no intellectual property stolen or anything like that.”

The guys have been teasing the “Best Song Ever” video. Watch the latest teaser below.
