Now they're a fearsome foursome!
One Direction was on GMA this morning, and before they performed their new single Drag Me Down, the boys took some time to talk about Zayn Malik and what they thought of moving forward as a group without him.

Malik, of course, has already responded to 1D's new single (he likes it!), and has signed his own record deal with RCA to begin working on solo projects. The band is moving forward without him, though. In addition to releasing this single, they are busy working on their next album which will be out soon!
Speaking about Zayn, Liam Payne said:
"Well, I mean, obviously it's different, but, you know, when you lose a member of your team obviously everyone gets a little bit close together. It's still going great and that's what this album is about were still going strong and were all still here so…"
Ch-ch-check out what the guys had to say about moving forward without Malik — and everything else 1D — in the video (below):
