Pharrell Williams revealed to the Sunday Mirror, that he is in talks to write songs for One Direction’s third studio album Midnight Memories, which is released on November 25. “We are definitely talking. From what I’ve heard of their new stuff I’m pleasantly surprised. Their new stuff is definitely a progression and an elevation. I will hopefully be getting involved as we are definitely in talks,” Williams told the Sunday Mirror. “I don’t think some people realize how hard those boys work. There is so much more that goes into One Direction than just the band. They are a brand and are huge. They are incredibly hard-working. I’m sure it will excite our female fans if we’re on a record together.”
Simon Cowell added: “I spoke to Pharrell about working with us on something. I’ve known him for a long, long time and he was saying to me that it’s just unbelievable what’s happening with him. “He is absolutely at the top of his game right now. Hopefully we will have a Pharrell track if that works out well.” Liam Payne was photographed in a recording studio with Williams last month.
