Why are all the new albums leaking online just a few days ahead of release? First it was Katy Perry's "Prism" that leaked online before its scheduled release date and then same happened to Lady Gaga's "Artpop." Now the latest album to be leaked online is none other than famous boy band One Direction's "Midnight Memories."

Scheduled for a November 25 official release, "Midnight Memories" is the third studio album by English-Irish boy band. However a small mistake on the part of iTunes has now led to album leak. The music giant iTunes accidentally made the album "Midnight Memories" available to all customers who had pre-ordered it.

In addition to the first two singles, "Best Song Ever" and "Story of My Life," there are 12 more tracks on the latest album, which can be listened here. The band, who has just concluded their "Take Me Home World tour," might have to stream it online on iTunes to prevent fans for searching for leaked sources online frantically.

"That's annoying !," wrote Niall Horan on Twitter expressing his dismay at the leak. Their second single "Story of My Life" was also leaked hence making some critics believe that the album leak could be intentional. All the albums, which are leaked ahead of release, are sure to create certain hype and have fans searching for links and giving their views on the best songs etc. This promotional tactic has been applied by many artists in recent months and has ended up in good amount of media coverage for the album, which otherwise would not have been possible.

"Diana" was officially released on iTunes Tuesday for fans to buy. Most tracks are die hard romantic and promises to be big hits. Check out the full tracklist below.
