There will also be the release of new interactive playlists as well as reformatted EPs featuring B-sides and rare songs, remixes, live recordings and acoustic versions of tracks.
A special “10 Years of One Direction” website will launch on July 23rd, which marks the groups actual anniversary.
The site will take be set up as timeline charting the history of the group, from the first audition on the British show The X Factor, up to the start of their hiatus. It will include an archive of music videos, artwork, TV performances, behind-the-scenes and rarely seen content, all in one place.
Visitors will also be able to generate their own shareable “mixtape” playlist on the site, which will be personalized according to how they’ve interacted with the site’s content and the eras they’ve spent the most time exploring. They will then be able to connect to streaming services to save the mixtape playlists to their respective accounts.
A brand new anniversary celebration video will also be released on the same day as the site. The video will document highlights of the band’s career, including the special relationship they have with their fans.
