Classic FM's take on news One Direction are to split

In an article published on the radio station’s website that reads “One Direction split - everything you need to know”, the author, Kyle MacDonald, has instead given fans a one hour seventeen minute video of Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No 7 in E minor.

Other than the subhead, which reads “Really, don’t worry about it. Here’s a magnificent Mahler Symphony,” the article lets the Mahler video speak for itself.

And after news that Louis, Liam, Niall and Harry won't be splitting permanently but taking a year-long hiatus to work on solo projects, fans should take heed of Classic FM's advice not to get too upset.
