Is there anything One Direction can't do?!

First off, the Brits are soooo adorbzie and talented…

Second, the group's first two albums, Up All Night and Take Me Home both debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200—which makes them the first British band to top the charts with the release of their first two albums since the Beatles!

Oh SHIZNIT, Directioners! They're good!

Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles are about to do the same with their third record, Midnight Memories, officially due out November 25th!

The AH-Mazing group wrote 15 of the 18 songs, which totes makes for a more personal sound!

In a new interview with Billboard magazine, Louis admitted actively participating in the writing process is something the fab five's been dying to do:

"I mean we've always wanted to get involved on the writing side and while we've been on tour this year we've been able to do that, we've written on 15 of the 18 tracks and we're really excited for everyone to hear them."

Liam agreed, explaining how each track holds a special travel memory:

"Yeah, like Louis said, we've worked really hard on this album and been really involved so we're really looking forward to getting it out there. Performing these tracks as well we'll remember which city we were in when we wrote them and who was there, that'll be cool."

And Harry revealed some personal musical influences that shaped the new tunes:

"I think we all have really different taste in music, Niall's really into his 80's rock and you know Zayn and Liam are more into R&B. I think you can really feel our musical influences throughout the album."

We can hardly wait to hear every delish track from the boys of 1D when the album officially drops!!
