To distract from their concert cancellation.
Just hours after sickness saw their Belfast concert cancelled, 1D drops their new video.
Directed by Sophie Muller, the black and white video is a more artistic affair than is usual for the band, and sees them causing chaos in New York’s Intercontinental Hotel.
Check it out:
The video premiere was no doubt an attempt to calm things down after 1D’s Belfast concert was minutes away from starting before it was announced the show would not in fact go on:
Unfortunately One Direction have had to cancel tonight's concert in Belfast. Liam has been taken suddenly (cont) https://t.co/oMtSdxlRrL

The rest of the band took to Twitter to apologise and wish Liam well:
We're so so sorry for what happened tonight, it was out of our control ! Lots of love to Liam and thank you for being so understanding !
