I know, I know, I know…everyone is trying to steal One Direction‘s girl(s) — so much so, they’ve decided to write a whole song about it!

While we’ve been steadily jamming to the original version of the lead single from their forthcoming studio album FOUR since late last month, the guys have decided to do us all a favor and take a moment away from shooting their video in the desert to supply us with a (slightly) stripped-down take on their anthemic track today.

While it’s not entirely as raw as the term “acoustic” may apply (there are still plenty of instruments and lots of production to be found on this version), it does put the boys’ melodic vocals at the forefront, emphasizing just how catchy and sing-along friendly this tune really is. Listen to the acoustic take after the jump.
