All his self-discovery aside, Horan remains close with his bandmates. “I see Louis and [his son] little Freddie all the time. He lives around the corner from me [in Los Angeles],” he says. He picked up gifts for Payne’s month-old boy that he hasn’t been able to present yet, because their schedules haven’t aligned. He planned to see Styles when the lanky star was in town for a weeklong residency on The Late Late Show With James Corden and genuinely gushes about his April episode of Saturday Night Live: “I loved his brilliant impression of Mick Jagger” in the Family Feud sketch, he says. As for his musical performances, he adds, “I really enjoyed them. He’s smashin’ it.”
Steve said that Louis' been writing with different writers & artists, and we've seen that's been in both in LA & London, from different genres and outside of the usual Syco/Sony circle. It makes me even more curious. His album is going to be so interesting and I don't expect it to be all in the EDM/dance space. I would love to hear him do all sounds and genres, (incl ballads) especially the ones he grew up with, with the ones he loves to listen to now too. I'm so excited for Louis' solo music!!
