One Direction Morph Into Each Other in ‘You & I’ Music Video


The five guys of One Direction become “one” in the music video for their heartfelt ballad “You & I,” which they released Friday morning.

In it, Niall, Louis, Harry, Zayn and Liam are all wearing the same gray sweater and black pants, and as each singer takes a verse, they transform from one to the next.

The song, from their Midnight Memories album, marks the 11th music video the group has shot since 2011.


Before the release of the video, Niall told fans in an Instagram video that they’re “doing something very different on this video, so make sure [to] check it out!”


In Instagram videos, Harry describes “You & I” as “a love song. It’s saying that you’re inseparable and nothing can get in the way of you and your love,” and Zayn adds that it’s “a romantic song for all of those candle lit dinners.”


Their previous single “Story of My Life,” as we as “You&I” take a more serious tone than the groups usual bubble gum pop sound.

Of the change, Liam says “I think it’s one of our best songs. It’s such a big track and it’s kind of a bit more grown up for us.” Louis also adds that “it feels slightly more serious for us. I think it’s an important song for us.”
