One Direction returned to Instagram for the first time since announcing their hiatus to mark 10 years since the group was created.
During the bootcamp rounds of The X Factor U.K., on July 23, 2010, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Zayn Malik were put together as a group, and went on to reach the finale of the contest.
On Wednesday (July 22, 2020), one day ahead of the 10-year anniversary of their creation, the band’s Instagram posted for the first time in over four years, teasing the “10 Years of One Direction” celebration.
“Tomorrow! You and me got a whole lot of history #10YearsOf1D,” they captioned the post.
The group is set to celebrate the milestone with the unveiling of a new interactive website, featuring a timeline beginning with their early days on Simon Cowell’s TV talent contest to the release of the song History in 2016.
Highlights include new videos and a personalised mixtape of songs, based on the way each fan interacts with the platform, along with the release of updated songs and special recordings of live performances across various streaming platforms.
