Meanwhile, the song is nominated for Choice Single and Choice Summer Song at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards, and the band is up for Choice Summer Music Star. The awards will be handed out on August 10 with the ceremony airing on the Fox network.

One Direction: Where We Are – The Concert Film will be released in cinemas worldwide for just one weekend on October 11 and 12.

One Direction: Where We Are: Live from San Siro Stadium also will be available on DVD on December 1.

Kimbra will hit the road this fall for a U.S. headlining tour. The tour, supported by electro-pop artist Empress Of, kicks off on October 20 in San Francisco and stops in major cities across the country through November 9. The singer is touring in support of her forthcoming album, The Golden Echo, which will be released on August 19 via Warner Bros. Records.

Uncle Kracker returns with his brand new single, "Endlessly," which was released digitally today via LAVA/Republic Records. Meanwhile, fans can catch him on the Under The Sun tour this summer alongside Sugar Ray, Smash Mouth, and Blues Traveler.

Billy Joel will be the next recipient of the Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song. Joel will receive the prize in Washington, D.C., in November and be feted with a series of events, including an honoree's luncheon and musical performances. The Gershwin Prize honors a living musical artist's lifetime achievement in promoting the genre of song as a vehicle of cultural understanding; entertaining and informing audiences; and inspiring new generations.
