After dominating the summer with their care-free single “Best Song Ever,” One Direction slow things down with “Story of My Life“! The track serves as the official second single off their upcoming third studio album Midnight Memories, which is scheduled for release on November 25 via Simco and Sony Music Entertainment. Co-written by Jamie Scott and Julian Bunetta, “Story of My Life” is a sweet anthemic ballad that sees the boys taking on a new indie/folk rock sound. It’s a nice song with a big backbeat and some serious Mumford & Sons gone pop vibes. They’ve recorded many ballads in the past, but this is definitely a new and more mature direction for the boys – I’m into it. What do you guys think?
