With a chart topping debut album, Directioners around the world are eagerly awaiting One Direction’s sophomore album. With songs written by well known music artists and even the boys themselves the upcoming album looks to be very promising.
The boys will most likely spend most of the summer recording for the album and have asked for input from many to assure the album is even better than the one before.
“According to the Florida-based rock band Boyce Avenue, they have been contacted by 1D to chat about possibly working with the guys on this release.” via mtv.com
Scottish-Indie group the View have also supposedly been helping out with tracks on the album.
” The ones I put in for One Direction were the ones that people said were too wimpy for the View. There’s a few of them — we write songs non-stop.” said singer Kyle Falconer via Press Party.
There are also rumors that Justin Bieber may collaborating with the boys.
“They’re my boys. They came to my house; we hung out. I have a pool, so we all went in and chilled out. If they want me on their album, they just have to ask. They’re talented.” said Bieber via an interview with Radio 2.
Ed Sheeran, a singer/songwriter who wrote the song “Moments” for One Direction’s debut album, has also confirmed that songs that he has written will be recorded for the upcoming album.
“I wrote a couple of songs when I was 17 that One Direction want for their next album,” said Sheeran via MTV. “I’m going into the studio in August to produce the tracks for them.”
With a photo shoot recently done for the new album and/or single, the album looks like it will be coming up just around the corner.
According to MTV.com and an interview with Niall Horan, new music could be coming as soon as early fall with the album anticipated by late 2012.
