One Direction will release a cover of Blondie's 1978 single 'One Way Or Another' for Comic Relief.

The boyband, who finished third on the 2010 series of The X Factor, will record the official song for the 2013 charity campaign and will perform the song live on the BBC's Red Nose Day coverage on Friday, March 31. Speaking about the single, Harry Styles of the band said: "We have grown up with Comic Relief and taken part in lots of Red Nose Days at school so we were thrilled to be asked to do this year's Red Nose Day single.

"It's such an honour for us. We can't wait to perform our version of this iconic pop song and raise as much money as possible for this incredibly important cause that is really close to our hearts."

One Direction recently made US chart history after their second album, 'Take Me Home', went to Number One in the US Billboard Top 200 chart.

The homegrown boy band are the first British group to have both their debut album and its follow-up go straight to the top of the US charts. One Direction's debut album, 'Up All Night', also went to Number One in the Billboard chart earlier this year upon its Stateside release.

Their new album sold 540,000 copies in its first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It went to Number One in the Official UK Albums Chart and also topped the charts in over 30 countries worldwide.
