With every member of One Direction now finding success, critical praise, happiness as solo artists and exploring their own musical palettes it seems more and more likely the so called hiatus from the group may be a permanent split.

But Liam Payne, who just dropped his solo single debut today is pretty confident there will be at least one final 1D chapter in the future.

He says: “There deserves to be one more album. We need to write another one and do at least one more tour. I had some of the best times in my life in that band.”

Liam’s debut single “Strip That Down” featuring Quavo is out now.
