Niall Horan is almost ready to drop “Flicker,” his debut solo album due out on Friday. He’s going toe-toe-toe with a new single from Liam Payne, so Niall is offering up teasers of what he has that Liam doesn’t: multiple songs. After teasing the title track on Instagram, Niall is back with two new songs off the upcoming albums. Titles like “Fire Away” and “On the Loose” may sound exciting, but they’re predictable slow rock jams from Niall.

Liam Payne recently confirmed rumors that his next single will be out in the middle of October. But his release date isn’t exactly original. In a tweet, Liam said that “Bedroom Floor” will drop on October 20–the same day as Niall Horan’s new album, “Flicker.”
While Niall’s sleepy singer-songwriter style and Liam’s sleek R&B vibes don’t seem like they’d compete for much, the double drop of One Direction solo projects could create some friction on iTunes charts or the Billboard Hot 100 if either release picks up steam. The idea that Liam’s release date is intended to steal Niall’s thunder is even stranger because both singers are signed to the same label.
It’s hard to tell what Capital Records is scheming at with the simultaneous releases.

Louis Tomlinson aspires to a quiet life of domestic bliss. When he’s not fighting paparazzi at the airport, the father of one is waxing nostalgic about One Direction. Louis misses his 1D glory days so much he’s trying to recreate some of that magic by listening to a solo project from one of his former bandmates.
Louis recently took to Twitter in support of Niall Horan’s new music. Niall just announced a single in the run-up to his debut solo album. Louis praised the track “Too Much To Ask” for its writing, production and Niall’s vocals. In a double dose of complimentary tweets, Louis used one expletive and four exclamation points to make it clear just how excited he is.
Zayn isn’t just GQ’s most stylish introvert, he has also been named among US Weekly’s Most Stylish New Yorkers. Since New York is the only place Zayn is ever seen, the new title seems a little unimpressive in context.
However, the singer’s style wasn’t the most interesting takeaway from the exclusive interview. Zayn revealed that he and Harry Styles current relationship isn’t that different from when they were in One Direction.
“To be honest, I never really spoke to Harry even when I was in the band,” Zayn reveals. “So I didn’t really expect that much of a relationship with him.”
Fans have been helping the members of One Direction celebrate the band’s seventh anniversary this summer. While one round of celebrations already came and went back in July, Liam has returned to celebrate the day the five members were brought together as a single band during “The X Factor” season during which they formed. And he’s not leaving anyone out.
“To my four band mates and brothers thank you so much,” Liam wrote in a tweet. “7 years ago today my life changed forever, beyond my wildest dreams, I’d like to thank everyone who has helped me along the way.”
Louis Tomlinson recently sat down with MTV for a chat about his new music. Louis briefly discussed his solo single “Back to You” featuring Bebe Rexha, but also shared some details about what to expect from his upcoming debut solo album.
“I kind of been in too many sessions and heard too many songs that describe situations that I just can’t relate to, that just seem to be so Hollywood almost, so almost unrealistic,” Louis said. Apparently, he’s interested in making music that feels more authentic. That might mean returning to his own musical roots, but just where did Louis’ love for music grow from?
