One Direction - To Infinity And Beyond

One Direction is reaching for the heavens for the video for its new single, "Drag Me Down."

The group has been cleared to film the clip at the NASA Space Center in Houston, Texas, according to MailOnline; details about the treatment have not been revealed, but the video will involve some of NASA's astronaut training equipment, airfields and other gadgetry at the facility.

There's no word on when the shoot will take place or when the video will be released. "Drag Me Down" is One Direction's first single as a quartet following Zayn Malik's departure from the band in March. It will be part of the group's fifth album, which is due out later this year.

One Direction is currently on its annual summer tour of North America, with a U.K. run slated to begin on September 24.
