One Direction have pushed forward the radio and video premiere of their new single to today after it was leaked online.
Sony Music said an unauthorised, poor quality version of the video was leaked this morning prompting the UK boy band to bring forward the premiere of the single by four days.
"We wanted our fans to see the video and hear the single in the proper way so we've moved the premiere to tonight," One Direction said.
"We're really excited about Live While We're Young, we've worked really hard on it and we can't wait for everyone to see and hear it later today!"
Fans immediately took to Twitter to express their excitement, with the acronym LWWY (for Live While You're Young) becoming a worldwide trending topic on Twitter within a hour after the song premiered.
Whitney tweeted: "I AM SCREAMING!!! WHY IS THE LWWY VIDEO SO PERFECT?! I THINK I AM HYPERVENTILATING!"
Another fan tweeted: "Zayn in the LWWY Music Video is one of the greatest things that ever happened."
The single goes on sale in New Zealand on September 28.
Live While We're Young is the first single to be taken from One Direction's upcoming second album Take Me Home, which is set to be released on November 9 in New Zealand.
The single was available to pre-order earlier this month, and became the fastest selling pre-order single in history.
The leaked video has since been pulled down from YouTube.
