One Direction’s hit single “Midnight Memories” is heading to vinyl next month to celebrate Record Store Day.
Some fans of the group might need to blow the dust off their parents’ record player this April. Although vinyl is still very much a hot commodity in certain circles, chances are most admirers aren’t adequately prepared to handle the upcoming “Midnight Memories” release. Of course, this writer could be completely wrong on the matter.
According to MTV News, the vinyl edition of “Midnight Memories” finds the fellas dressed in hair metal-inspired outfits while striking some appropriately cheesy poses. If you’re curious to see the artwork ahead of the tune’s release, then take a look at the image below. Even if you don’t like One Direction, it’s hard not to crack a smile.
