One way or another, One Direction fans always manage to find a way to listen to the British-Irish boy band’s latest music prior to its release date. And that’s exactly what happened with the guys’ cover of Blondie’s “One Way or Another” a couple weeks back. Unfortunately, unlike most Internet leaks, this one was a bit more emotional as the song was recorded for charity. Louis Tomlinson wrote on his Twitter,
I hear the charity single has been leaked. Very sad to see. Don’t forget together we are trying to raise money for comic relief.

On a brighter note, the tune just got its first radio airplay this morning on Capital FM, so hopefully that’ll lead to more purchases of the track, which will be available on iTunes on February 17.
