New Music: One Direction - "Ready To Run" [Full Audio]

one direction four album

New One Direction! The British boy band JUST released (at midday on Nov. 6) by surprise the first “countdown single” from “Four” on iTunes. It’s the second track on the album; “Ready to Run”. This was co-written by Jamie Scott, Julian Bunetta, John Ryan, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne. “Ready to Run” is very reminiscing to “Story of My Life” in the sense they share the same folk-pop vibe. Stream it in full below then go buy it on iTunes (if you like)!

“Ready to Run” song review

This time I'm ready to run / Escape from the city and follow the sun”, sing the One Direction lads in the chorus of their new “Four” song. Isn’t the production in the verses super alike to that of “Story of My Life”? For a second I thought this leak was a joke and it was “Story of My Life” I was listening to. But no…it was “Ready to Run”.

The song is great, well-written and vocally executed. Single worthy? I don’t think so. It’s not about it being folk-pop, not at all, I mean “Story of My Life” was huge hit. It’s just that I don’t see the same potential I saw in “Story” in “Ready to Run”. Still! This is a GREAT album track. You can totally smell the scent of “mature” in this song. One Direction’s sound is growing. And can we give Harry Styles a round of applause for those power vocals in the bridge? That was a looooong note!

Hit or Miss?
