When One Direction took to the Internet earlier this week to announce their new single, "Live While We're Young," would be available later that day for pre-order, fans all over the world borrowed their parents' credit cards and ordered that ish like it was nobody's business. 1D's newest song—that no one has even heard—is now the fastest-selling pre-order single in history, according to Digital Spy. Go, teens!

"Live While We're Young" has topped the pre-order charts in 40 countries, and the only thing we know about it is that it was written by Savan Kotecha, Rami Yacoub and Carl Falk and is described as "pop perfection." September 30 can't come soon enough.
