We guess the phrase "solo career" is something we really should be getting used to by now, as dramatic as it is.
So who is the NEXT member of 1D to work on solo stuff....?
It's Niall Horan!
Niall has potentially exceeded his golfing limit and decided to turn back to music with songwriter Wayne Hector confirming the news: "We are writing together but he wants to do it for himself and not other people at the moment."
"We have no idea where we'll end up," Hector told The Daily Star.
Hector also added that Niall took him along to a golfing event: "Niall wants to enjoy time off but he's introduced me to sports events. We went to a golfing thing with Rory McIlroy and Alex Ferguson."
No word on WHEN we can expect some Irish jigs to make their ways into our ears but we're just feeling FAB about the idea of more music.
