One Direction announced their fourth album – aptly titled Four – and released the leading single “Fireproof” on Monday.

One Direction Announces 'Four'

British boyband One Direction made the major album announcement on YouTube, teasing their fans with one of the album’s tracks. "As you know, we've spent the last few months on our stadium tour," Niall Horan said in the clip. "But, we've also been working on our next album."

“It's one of our favorite songs, so hopefully you are enjoying it! And can't wait for you to hear the rest of the album,” continued Horan.

"We're really proud of it, and we hope you won't mind us sharing a track with you,” added frontman Harry Styles. “The track is from our brand new album, Four."

"Fireproof", co-written by Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson, is another poppy love song from the group. “Cause nobody knows you baby, the way I do / And nobody loves you baby, the way I do,” goes the chorus. “It's been so long / It's been so long / Maybe you were fireproof / Cause nobody saves me baby the way you do."

One Direction's previous three albums – Midnight Memories, Take Me Home and Up All Night – have all gone multiplatinum and reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.

Four is slated for release Nov. 17.
