It’s no secret that One Direction’s music has been embracing rock influences more and more with each album release. And now the guys are diving even deeper into that world on their fifth album, which they are currently working on.
When Liam Payne called into Capital FM in the U.K. on Monday (April 27), he opened up a bit about what fans will hear on this latest album release, the group’s first since Zayn Malik left the band in March.
“The albums coming together really well actually. The boys we’ve been writing with have come up with some great, great songs that are kind of like a bit Oasis-y almost which is ace,” he shared. “I love that.”
The group first teased they were working on new music on social media in mid-April. The band’s fifth album release is expected to be released later this year. And they are aiming to make something that can be played for generations to come.
“The songs have come out a bit more chill because I think we want this to be quite a long-lasting album that you can listen to anytime,” Payne said. “You like how Ed [Sheeran’]s album, anytime you can thrown on an Ed song and it can always make sense. We’re trying to do that.”
