Made in the A.M. is the fifth studio album by the English-Irish boy band One Direction, released on 13 November 2015, by Columbia Records and Syco Music. The album is the group's first album following the departure of Zayn Malik, who left the group in March 2015.[3] The album was complemented by the singles "Drag Me Down", released on 31 July 2015; "Perfect", released on 16 October 2015 and "History", released on 16 January 2016. These three singles reached the top 10 in a number of national charts.

Upon its release, the record received generally favourable reviews from critics. It debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart with 93,189 copies, and at number two on the US Billboard 200, with 402,000 first-week sales, behind Justin Bieber's Purpose. The album's first-week sales were higher than the band's previous album, Four, which amassed an opening sale of 387,000 in 2014, breaking a predicted boy band trend of consecutive declining album sales.[4][5] Additionally, Made in the A.M. was the second fastest-selling album of 2015 in the UK, surpassed only by Adele's 25, a week after the album's release.[6] According to the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry, Made in the A.M. was the sixth best-selling album of 2015 with 2.4 million copies sold worldwide.[7]

Background[edit]

The album was announced on 22 September 2015.[8] Following the release of its lead single, "Drag Me Down", it was revealed that the group would go on a temporary hiatus in 2016 to take a break.[9] On 22 September, the title for the fifth studio album, Made in the A.M., was officially announced along with promotional single "Infinity" being released.[10] The group began to reveal the track listing on their Snapchat stories to which it was later confirmed on iTunes.[11] The band members all agreed that this album was the best work out of their other efforts due to their main involvement with writing and composition for the majority of the songs.[12]

Julian Bunetta, the producer behind many of the group's songs, told Billboard that the fifth album was recorded with the four members knowing it would be their last for a while. "There was a feeling of, 'Well, we’re going to take a break, and anything in the world can happen during that time off'", adding, "There's a song about losing someone that isn't Zayn. There's also a song about the band being on shaky ground and not knowing what the future is. There are songs about love, there's a song that is a little more sexually charged. It's all over the map."[3]

Singles[edit]

"Drag Me Down" was spontaneously released as the album's lead single on 31 July 2015, with no previous promotion or warning. It debuted at number one on the UK Singles Chart, breaking the record for the most streamed song in its first week, with 2.03 million plays.[13] In the United States, the song debuted at number three on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, with 350,000 downloads in its first week, earning the band their largest sales week ever.[14] "Drag Me Down" also broke and set a new Vevo record by having the fastest and most likes earned in 24 hours. "Perfect" was serviced as the album's second single on 16 October 2015.[15][16][17] The song debuted at number two in the UK and number ten on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The debut gave the band their fifth top 10 start on the Hot 100, passing the record among groups of four debuts, previously held by The Beatles.[18][19]

"Infinity" was issued as a promotional single on the iTunes Store and Apple Music on 22 September 2015. "What a Feeling" was released as the second promotional single, two days prior the album's release date.[20]

Although "Infinity" was announced as the album's third single by member Liam Payne,[21] "History" was later confirmed as the next single.[22] On 27 January 2016, the official music video for "History" was released to the One Direction Vevo channel and YouTube.[23] It peaked at number six on the UK Official Chart in 2016.[24]

Made in the A.M. has received generally favourable reviews from music critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a weighted average rating out of 100 from selected independent ratings and reviews from mainstream critics, the album received a Metascore of 65, based on 11 reviews, indicating "generally favourable reviews".[26]

Neil McCormick of The Daily Telegraph found that a "slight tone of weariness may have crept into 1D's lyrics with songs about break-ups and yearning for home" but concluded that the music remains "anthemic, up-tempo, superior pop, with elegant song structure, ear-worm hooks and radio-busting choruses."[1] Although Kenneth Partridge of Billboard magazine declared that the album "could be the band's Abbey Road" and awarded it four stars, he also critiqued the group as a "prefab 21st-century pop machine" who churns out "boilerplate love songs that rarely feel personal or look beyond" their "vacuum-sealed bubble-gum world".[29]

Writing for Rolling Stone, Rob Sheffield thought the album is "1D's Let It Be – the kind of record the world's biggest pop group makes when it's time to say thanks for the memories." Regarding the album's sound, he noted it is "chasing the rock vibe of Midnight Memories and Four. Made in the AM is also the highest rated One Direction album by Rolling Stone.[34] Leah Greenblatt of Entertainment Weekly complimented the album for being "another deft collection of shiny, hermetically sealed anthems".[31]

Commercial performance[edit]

In the UK, Made in the A.M. debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart with first-week sales of 93,189,[37] becoming their fourth album to top the chart and the fastest selling album of 2015 until that point, beating out Justin Bieber's album Purpose. The album was certified Silver by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) in its first week, and certified Platinum on 1 January 2016, denoting shipments of 300,000 copies.[38] The album debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 with 459,000 album-equivalent units (402,000 pure album sales), behind Justin Bieber's Purpose, becoming the band's first album to fail to debut at number one. As of April 2016, the album has sold a total of 1,000,000 copies in the United States, counting pure sales and streams. Compared to the band's previous four albums, this is their lowest selling album both in the US & UK.
