One Direction return with the stunningly emotive ballad ‘You & I’, the new single from their record breaking platinum album Midnight Memories. ‘You & I’ is a mature, haunting anthem written by Julian Bunetta, Jamie Scott and John Ryan, who previously teamed up with the band for the double platinum smash hit single ‘Story Of My Life.’
The music video for ‘You & I’’ will premiere on April 18th and once again sees the band collaborate with Ben Winston (‘Best Song Ever’, ‘Story Of My Life’ and the movie ‘This Is Us’). Liam Payne has remixed an exclusive version of ‘You and I’ dubbed the ‘Big Payno Remix’.
Fans will be able to follow Liam’s lead and will be given the chance to make their very own ;You & I”=; remix. The vocal stems are available for download on the One Direction soundcloud and the band is encouraging fans to create their own remix and upload to the ‘You and I’ remix group. Liam will then publicly playlist his favorite mixes each week.
