By now we’ve all heard that our favourite foursome One Direction will be taking a break next year, and though the boys have all previously insisted that it would be a break and not a permanent split, it’s now looking like it’ll be a bit longer than originally thought…
Now, in fairness, the original report did say the One Direction hiatus would be at least a year, so we might’ve been being optimistic in thinking it wouldn’t last so long, but in a recent interview discussing his Post-One Direction plans, singer Liam Payne revealed that he would spend the time writing songs, and that time would be two years!
In an exclusive interview with Radio 1’s Greg James during their Live Lounge performance, Liam revealed “Obviously we’re all going to take a break for a little bit and consider where we are in the world. I just want to write songs, that’s been the most fun process out of this, except for the touring, has been the writing of the songs and we’re going to come back so there’s something to write for as well, for us and other people. We haven’t really had time to write an album and whereas two years off…Writings not really a job, it’s so much fun, we’ve always had to rush it so it’s nice in these two years I’m going to write some songs and see what happens”
So, there you have it, straight from the boys mouth; the One Direction hiatus will be 2 years, or there about, and after 5 years of Craziness and constant dedication, we think we deserve that.
It’s not all doom and gloom, though, since in the very same statement Liam teased that they would be using the time to prepare for their comeback album!
Two years to complete an album is certainly a more reasonable expectation than the 1-a-year cycle the boys are currently stuck in, so not only should come back from a break happier, I expect we’ll be seeing a more advanced and better quality music as a result of it! It’s been a long time since the boys got to record in a studio, and not in the back of a tour bus, after all!
One Direction 5th album Made in the A.M. is released today, which makes the pain of a 2-year-break a little more bearable.
