Liam Payne Still Likes To Perform One Direction Song For Nostalgia

Liam Payne Still Likes To Perform One Direction Song For Nostalgia

Liam Payne is still working on his debut solo album, but admits he likes to take trips down memory lane.

The 24-year-old singer opened up about how he loves to still perform One Direction songs.

“I’ll never forget where I came from. That’s why I love singing the 1D songs when I’m out and about. It’s quite nostalgic for me,” he told People.

As for branching out on their own, Liam dished, “We did so much within the band that it’s so hard. How are you gonna top what we did? It’s amazing. So for me, this was like our chance at a bit of freedom.”

“I think you can see that in all the boys and the way that they now are expressing themselves, and they wouldn’t before,” he added. “This is the chance to do that. When I was finding my sound, I wanted to have more fun with it. I wanted to get collaborations. We’d never done that before. And it was really nice the way I was received within the industry of people wanting to work with me.”

“I’ve released so many different types of music,” Liam said about his debut album. “This album’s so important for me right now so I can find out which lane is most suited for me: the fine-tuning experiment of what you think of yourself, where you want to go and what other people think of you. As soon as you can find that median point between all three, you’re there — and this is like the last piece of the puzzle for me.”

Niall Horan Remembers How One Direction Kicked Themselves Out of Trump Hotel One Time

One time in New York, One Direction kicked themselves out of Trump Hotel, and Niall Horan just revealed all the details.

During his appearance on The Late Late Show With James Corden in London this week, the 24-year-old “Slow Hands” singer explained that the band was staying at the hotel for their Madison Square Garden show, and Donald Trump, before he was president, had asked them to take a picture with his lawyer’s daughter.

“We basically said that we were doing no meet and greets and stuff because it was such a big show. It was the biggest show of our career,” Niall shared, and we totally get it.

However, Trump, did not.

After they said no, the band was told that they were no longer allowed to use the back garage to enter the building, forcing them to face fans sitting and waiting out front.

“He basically wanted us to promote the hotel,” Niall added. “So we just left.”

Liam Payne Reveals New Album Release Date, Talks Future of One Direction

We finally have a release date for Liam Payne‘s upcoming debut solo album!

The singer and J Balvin took the stage during Good Morning America‘s Summer Concert Series at Central Park SummerStage on Tuesday (May 15) in New York City.

They performed their collaboration “Familiar,” and Liam performed “Strip That Down.” He also let fans know that his new album “is out on the 14th of September, I can tell you that much. I’m really happy with it, it’s come out really nice.”

He didn’t share the album title or who will be featured on it, but he said, “I’ve got a good mix of beautiful people on my album, which is amazing.”

Liam also spoke to the future of One Direction: “I’m sure there’s time for that to come back around. And the more success we have on our own, the more success we’re going to have together in the future. We’re like The Avengers — if you want Spider-Man to sort something out, he sorts it out. But then The Hulk will go, ‘Well I’ll sort this out.’ It’s one of those things.”

Liam Payne Has Big Plans For One Direction's Future Reunion

Liam Payne Has Big Plans For One Direction's Future Reunion

Liam Payne snaps a photo on the cover of #legend magazine’s May issues, available now.

The 24-year-old musician opened up about his relationship with One Direction, their reunion plans and how he’s grown up. Check it:

On his relationship with his One Direction band mates: “I went away and the person I was in the band, I’m not him now. It was all right to be that person then, but now, I need to be something totally different. Even going to see Louis the other day – it’s nice to meet people and have them see how you are now, because you can understand all the things you might have done wrong or the things you might have regretted doing. You can say, ‘I’m different now, so whatever that was in the past, we were different people.’ We got on well in One Direction, but there were times when we didn’t. Certain members fell out with each other sometimes, but it would always come back round. So, I don’t ever think that I won’t be friends with these people for life. But I think it’s important in anything that you can think about everything you would have liked to change about yourself and then grow.”

On how he’s changed since 1D’s hiatus: “Fame made me a little bit nuts and distracted me a lot from the person I was. And it pissed me off in the end, because it was like, ‘You could have been this guy, but you chose to do this.’ Nobody really knew anything about me. I put on a front that wasn’t really me. But now that I’ve had my time away, you slowly, naturally become the person you were before you started, but with a lot more knowledge. So I feel a lot more myself than I ever did before, rather than being a part of something and having a part to play or treading on eggshells around someone. And when I sat back and thought about all the silly things I might have said and done wrong – not that I have any regrets, because I think whatever happened, happened – I think that now is the time to not be that person. I remember the day we finished, because of the place I was in, I was quite happy that we had a break. I said to the person with me at the time, ‘Thank god I don’t have to play that person again for a long time.’ It was exhausting and I couldn’t keep up with myself.”

On a potential 1D reunion: “The only way we could get any bigger is throw one massive concert where it’s basically all of us versus each other, but we’re still in a band. So if we all went like, ‘Hang on a minute boys, just going to throw this in’ and bang, on comes [Niall Horan’s] ‘Slow Hands’ and we’re all just popping along – that would be the most fun sh*t ever.”
