Singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran has revealed that One Direction have finished work on their third studio album.


Louis Tomlinson recently revealed that the band have already started working on the album, which is expected to be released at the end of the year:

“We’ve already started recording the album, we started about a month ago. We’ve been writing and recording it while on tour. We are really happy with it. We don’t want to rush it but it will be out for Christmas.”

However, the ‘Little Things’ writer has confirmed that the lads have finished recording it already.

Apparently, the boys were in a contract that meant they had to produce three albums in three years, and it would seem that they are doing just that.

Ed Sheeran has contributed to both of One Directions past albums. He wrote ‘Moments’ for their first album Up All Night, and for their last album Take Me Home he wrote ‘Over Again’ and ‘Little Things’.

However, there will be no tracks from Ed Sheeran himself on the latest album.

One Direction Album History

Ed told MTV News: “I haven’t done any songs on this one,”

 “I’ve actually kind of cut myself from giving any people songs at the moment because I want to make my album. I was approached and it wasn’t so much as a ‘no’, it was just a ‘I want to write tunes for myself at the moment. Once my album’s done then we’ll see.'”

He added, “But their album is already finished.”

Exciting news!

What do you think they’ll call the new album?

    noooo! because they’re contract states they have to make at least three albums and Harry is working on solo stuff. The reason why they are rushing it might me because they’re splitting up?
