The 23-year-old singer was asked about the band’s hiatus during his appearance on The Graham Norton Show.
“For now, in the moment, we are kinda doing our own thing,” Niall said while promoting his debut solo single “This Town.” “I’m doing this, Harry [Styles]‘ doing a movie. Harry did a movie. You know, we’re all doing our own bits and pieces. Can’t really put a date on it, but it’s not gonna be 50 years away. It’s in the foreseeable [future].”
Liam Payne is officially going solo with his music career!
The 23-year-old entertainer signed with Republic Records and his new record label promises that new music will be coming soon!
“Being a member of the most successful group of the last decade, Liam has a tremendous opportunity to make an even greater impact on pop culture. We’re honored by Liam’s decision to join Republic Records, and have extremely high expectations for his solo career,” Republic Records Co-Founder and C.E.O. Monte Lipman said in a statement.
“Every lyric I’ve ever written has a story behind it. All the hard work that went into the creation of ‘Pillowtalk’ was worthwhile because, as soon as it was finished, I intuitively felt I was on the right path,” Zayn wrote. “It was a sick cut, nailing the exact sound I wanted to capture in my music. I was also able to sing about a subject that I hadn’t really been able to go near while I was in One Direction: sex.”
All three reached out to Niall, 23, over Twitter, wishing him the best with his emerging solo career. Charlie Puth also reached out to congratulate him.
“I wanted to kind of let people know that I was up to something so they didn’t think I’d just fallen off the face of the earth,” Niall shared with SiriusXM during a recent interview about the track. “That’s the only song that’s actually fully finished.”

According to The Sun, Niall has signed a solo record deal with Universal Music instead of Simon Cowell‘s Syco.
“Simon has made no secret of his expectations for Niall to stay loyal to him and has been desperately trying to keep him as a solo act with plans to turn him into a Justin Bieber style artist,” a source told the publication. “They’ve worked together closely since day one and have always had a strong relationship, but Universal offered a lot of money.”
The day before, Niall was seen stopping by Capitol Records, so we’re not sure what that means.

“I’ll definitely be working with Niall very soon,” Shawn told The Daily Star. “I got a chance to speak to him recently and we are definitely going to write together.”
Shawn continued, “We are going into the studio as soon as we can get our diaries together and see what we come up with. I would love to do something for my next record as well as his – we will have to wait and see.”
