We’ve been waiting with bated breath while he’s been dropping cryptic hints all over the ‘gram, and now it sounds like Liam Payne’s solo album could be dropping as soon as next month, and apparently he's got some ~epic~ tunes in store for us!
When asked to about the new dad’s solo material, record producer Ryan Tedder, who’s been working with the former Directioner spilled the goss, saying:
"[It’s like] if you took 'Story of My Life' and turned it into an album, that’s kind of Niall’s direction, right? Zayn obviously went R&B and urban. Harry is classic Britpop; Mott the Hoople meets Robbie Williams - that lane. I like Louis, but he’s the one I’ve talked to the least,” he revealed, adding,
"Funnily enough of all the routes that people have taken, the one lane that was left wide open was straight pop. So Liam is pop and doing it in a fantastic fashion. He has a killer voice. There are elements of stuff I like from Usher, there’s stuff that’s edgy like The Weeknd ... it’s all over the map - it’s pop. It’s really high quality. I’ve only done one song with him that I did with Stargate. I’m cutting another song with him next week. The other one that [Zancanella] did with J Kash, it’s my favourite record I’ve heard. If it’s not a hit I need to clear my ears out - it’s so good."
So what exactly can we expect from his first single, you ask?
"It’s a dance record. I personally think it’s the biggest one on the album... I know what the first single is and there’s a lot of fame attached to the first single, I’ll say that."
Time to get ~excited~ guys, we know we are!
