One Direction will record 5 studio albums by 2016 to receive a massive payout. Their third album is now being recorded and will be released at end of 2013. An insider said on Simon Cowell’s Syco label:
‘The type of contract the boys are on means they’ll receive a huge bonus if they complete the five-album deal by 2016. It is a massive incentive to tough it out, work hard and stick together.’
Tracks for upcoming album are being laid down in hotel rooms, their tour bus and makeshift studios as they tour the world: ‘Everyone has agreed to work as hard as possible and make as much money over the next few years before taking time out to pursue other things.
Everything is being done to make sure the lads are taken care of and aren’t overworked. But at the end of the day they know it’s in their best interests to keep working hard while they are so popular.’
