One Direction may have devastated fans with the news of their impending hiatus following the release of their fifth album, Made In The A.M., but it appears One Direction’s fans aren’t the only ones who are emotional over the group’s upcoming album.
In a new interview with Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Niall Horan, and Louis Tomlinson open up about what fans can expect from their highly anticipated Made In The A.M. album, including which track made Liam Payne tear up during the recording process.
Hollywood Life reports that during the interview, Payne admits to getting very emotional while recording one track from the new album.
When asked about how Made In The A.M. differs from One Direction’s previous albums, Payne admits that the group “went off away in different directions” with the recording process before explaining that one of Harry Styles’ tracks actually made him shed a few tears.
“Your song [Harry’s] was quiet emotional for me to do. I may have shed one or two tears whilst performing.”
While Payne didn’t dish on which song from Made In The A.M. made him so emotional, the singer did admit that the album is his “favorite” because it’s the most that all members have been able to collaborate together during the writing process.
Similarly, Horan gushed over the group’s fifth album, noting that they’re all “very proud” of the work that they’ve done despite losing their fifth member, Zayn Malik, earlier this year.
“It kind of started at the end of last year, start of this year. We took a lot of time out to write it. We are very proud of it. It is definitely our favorite.”
When asked to give his thoughts on the group’s new album, Styles jokingly admits that he prefers the group’s last album, Four, before explaining that the group’s first album was “the best one” and that all of the other albums have “since gone downhill.”
Meanwhile, Louis Tomlinson and Horan opened up about the group’s newly released track, “Infinity,” explaining that the group decided to release the track prior to the official drop of Made In The A.M. because it’s a “throw-out” track.
When asked about “Infinity,” Tomlinson admits, “It’s a Craig Davis song…it’s a garage cover,” while Horan further explains, “‘Infinity’ is one of our songs that we have thrown out, so if you preorder the album you can have this today. We just throw it out these days. It’s one of our favorites.”
While the group prepares for Made In The A.M.‘s November release, One Direction recently celebrated the half-year mark since losing former member, Zayn Malik, to another record label.
Directioners took to Twitter to express their sadness over the group’s impending hiatus while also mourning the loss of Malik prior to 1D’s new album release.
While One Direction’s fans may be missing Malik, it appears Zayn’s ex-fiancée, Perrie Edwards, isn’t shy about supporting her ex’s band following their split.
Daily Mail reports that Edwards, alongside her Little Mix bandmate, Jade Thirwall, were spotted hanging out with the One Direction boys during the Apple Music Festival in London earlier this week.
Edwards and Thirwall were photographed partying alongside Tomlinson and Horan until the early hours of the morning on September 23, leading some fans to believe that Edwards and One Direction may be dissing their former 1D bandmate.
Similarly, Malik made headlines on Thursday after he seemingly threw shade at One Direction’s technical difficulties during their performance at The O2 Arena.
Just hours after Tomlinson took to Twitter to apologize to fans for the band’s sound issues during their performance, Malik took to Twitter to write, “Forget about gimmicks, it’s all about lyrics.”
While Malik chose not to clarify the meaning of his post, some fans interpreted his message to be a dig at One Direction after he admitted to wanting to make “real music” earlier this year.
