One Direction are working with members of Good Charlotte and Kodaline on their next album.

The chart-topping boyband are currently working on their fourth studio album, the follow up to 2013 release 'Midnight Memories', which topped the charts in 19 countries around the world.

This weekend (March 8) band members Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne shared a picture of themselves with Benji and Joel Madden of US pop-punks Good Charlotte (see above) while Irish band Kodaline revealed they are working separately with Harry Styles on songs for the album. The band previously worked with Justin Young of The Vaccines on songs prior to the release of 'Midnight Memories'.

Speaking in a recent interview with Capital FM, Liam Payne said that One Direction's new album will see a change in sound which he believes will make them more popular with male music fans. "People say we don't work hard and it's all a game and whatever," he said. "We just wanna make good music, and this album – honestly, every lad out there tonight who's thinking One Direction are this and that. Literally, next album – pick up our album and see what you feel."

One Direction were named the most popular global recording artists of 2013 in the first complete analysis of downloads, streams and physical sales. International music industry body IFPI named the boyband Global Artists of 2013 – a newly-created award which takes into account global sales and streams.
