One Direction boy banders Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne filled New York City’s Central Park with screaming fans this morning for a concert hosted by ABC’s “Good Morning America.” The band released their third album yesterday (Nov. 25).

The album, Midnight Memories has already soared to No. 1 in 98 countries, solidifying the band as the latest pop phenomenon.

Styles and crew were also coming off a big win at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles Sunday night (Nov. 24). They were named the favorite band or duo in the pop/rock category, topping Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Imagine Dragons.

The AMAs are largely a popularity contest, so the win signifies that the band has a loyal and growing fan base.

In an interview during the show, the band explained the back-story for their song “The Story of My Life.”

“It’s just about reflecting,” said Styles, who wasn’t the most articulate after taking a red-eye flight for Los Angeles and appearing early this morning for the live talk show.

Harry made clear that he was not dating Kendall Jenner and said they were “just friends.” The were spotted out together last week on a dinner date.

The band also released the dates for its upcoming North American Tour.

Since the boys have been on the road so much, they were asked what they missed the most; a good old English breakfast, of course. And, their own beds.
