The boyband will release 'Little Things' as the second cut to be lifted from their forthcoming album Take Me Home.
"On the shoot today for our next single off the new album , Little Things 🙂 happy days," Louis Tomlinson tweeted earlier today (October 15).
The track will serve as the follow-up to their recent hit 'Live While We're Young', which reached number two in the UK and has peaked at three on the UK Hot 100 so far.
The single broke a handful of records in the US when it became the highest single debut from a British group in American music history.
One Direction's second studio collection Take Me Home will be released in the UK on November 12 and a day later in the US.
One Direction's new single 'Live While We're Young' has become the fastest-selling pre-order single in history.

One Direction release 'Live While We're Young' on September 30 and a day later in the US and Canada.
The song was written by Savan Kotecha, Rami Yacoub and Carl Falk and is described as "pop perfection - an immediate, energy packed song mixing rock undertones with smooth harmonies, about living for the moment".
The track trails their as-yet-untitled second studio album, which follows in November. The LP's credits include Dr Luke, Shellback and Toby Gad.
