One Direction ‘organising’ new album

Niall Horan reveals the group are plotting new writing sessions

Following Zayn Malik’s departure from the group last week, One Direction are plotting their first new music as a four-piece.

Niall Horan has taken to Twitter to reveal that he and his bandmates have been ‘organising’ writing sessions with their record label for what will be their fifth studio LP and follow-up to most recent album ‘Four’, which came out last November.

“Had a sit down last night with the label, started organising our writing sessions for the next album! F— yeaaaahhhh! Can’t wait!” Horan tweeted.

Malik, meanwhile, has been spotted in the recording studio with producer Naughty Boy, who in the past has worked with Emeli Sande, Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith, among others.

Last night (March 30), the producer posted a link to stream new demo ‘I Won’t Mind’ on Soundcloud. Tweeting the link to the song, he made reference to ‘Zaughty’, a mix of his and Zayn’s names. “There is nothing but love for what was left behind. thats why we don’t mind. πŸ˜‰ #2016 #zaughty #zindabad.”

It is not clear if the song belongs to Naughty Boy, who released debut album ‘Hotel Cabana’ in 2013, Malik himself or the joint project ‘Zaughty’. Click below to listen.
