UPDATE: According to Sony Music, the single name and release dates listed below are false and it is too early to release any details on the forthcoming sophomore album (that will be released later this year).

Get ready, Directioners! One Direction are releasing new music this fall!

The band previously announced that they’d have a new album out by Christmas 2012, and now we’ve got some more deets and specific dates. 1D confirmed that their next new single will be ‘Heartbreaker,’ due out this November (Nov. 20 in the U.K., Nov. 27 in the U.S., Nov. 28 worldwide). The track, produced by Carl Falk, Rami Yacoub and Savan Kotecha, will hit radio Nov. 26 — just in time for holiday stocking stuffers!

Ed Sheeran is one of the fellow artists to contribute to the sophomore release. Sheeran confirmed the news to MTV U.K. as well as to PopCrush. “I wrote a couple of songs when I was 17 that One Direction want for their next album,” Sheeran told MTV. “I’m going into the studio in August to produce the tracks for them. I won’t feature on the tracks though,” he clarified, noting, “There’s definitely a divide in genre.”

Why does he work with the boys despite the difference in their musical styles? He told us exclusively, “I don’t really do that a whole lot, I think it’s just because I’m friends with them.”

Sheeran isn’t the first pop star to offer his songwriting talents to the ‘X Factor‘ alums. Kelly Clarkson penned ‘Tell Me a Lie,’ then gave it to the adorable blokes at Simon Cowell‘s insistence.

We can’t wait to hear ‘Heartbreaker’!
