Simon Cowell, who was the mastermind behind the hugely successful boyband One Direction after putting them together on 'The X Factor' U.K. in 2010, has admitted while he thinks they will make two more albums as a group, their future isn't certain after those records have been released.
He told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: "Bands don't stay together forever."
"I think they will make at least two more albums together and they are in the middle of one right now."
Gone are those fresh-faced teens off of The X Factor four years ago. Our boys are now men, and they reckon their fourth album should show it.
Chatting about what delights their new album has to offer, Niall Horan admitted that there may be a new sound coming their fans’ way: ‘I think it’s going to be a little bit more edgy. We feel like we’ve got some really good songs.’
Intriguing. And his band buddy added that they’ve taken this album (mostly) into their own hands.
It has been a long time since One Direction last released a single.
In fact their last single You & I was released in April and only reached a peak of number 19 in the official UK chart.
The boys have of course been incredibly busy since then. Niall organised a charity football match, they launched their latest perfume and most importantly they have been travelling around the world on their Where We Are tour which reached its final leg this month.
