At the Apple Music Festival on Tuesday, the guys from One Direction had plenty to say about their upcoming album "Made in the A.M.," including the release date -- Nov. 13, the same day Justin Bieber's new disc comes out.

"It kind of started at the end of last year, start of this year," Niall Horan said. "We took a lot of time to write and we're all very proud of it. It's definitely our favorite."

Liam Payne added that the album was put together by all the guys going off separately and writing with different people, then coming back together again. "I guess that's why it's our favorite -- because it's the most we've ever written together," he said.

They also mentioned that fans who preorder "Made in the A.M." would immediately receive the album track "Infinity."
