One Direction to record new album this summer


One Direction's follow-up to their hit debut album, "Up All Night," is coming sooner than you can swoon over the mere sight of the British boy band.

They have snatched up their fellow Brit Ed Sheeran and his teenage-written tunes for a few songs off their next release, which may be completed by summer's end.

Find: One Direction suing another One Direction

"We've been recording already, actually," member Niall Horan told MTV in a recent phone interview. "When we came back from Australia, we had a couple weeks off and then we went straight into the studio to get cracking on the next album."

"We wrote an absolutely cracking song that we're all kind of very excited about," the 18-year-old singer said. "And then last week we were in L.A. and we had five days off the tour to record in L.A., so we recorded more there." He adds that the band is spending all of July and August getting the album done.

The lead single for the new album is expected to be released around September. And no, as we broke it to you earlier this week, it won't be the rumored track called "Heartbreaker."

"I read that on Twitter," Niall told MTV. "It's not true at all. We actually don't even have a song called 'Heartbreaker.' That's not gonna happen."

Fred Willard...It's sad that he got so many LOLs'.  You see, when a man gets old, I mean, when his brain matter starts to turn  grey,  (check with a radiologist),   he  has parts of  his "reasoning", and 'understanding' missing.  There is also something a bout  being in this condition that makes one want to have sex with something, even themselves, from time to  time..  He may have been checking to see if IT was still there.  I've seen so many old men and mentally ill young men who relate to sex above all else. The condition makes them do this, not the devil.  The theme may be funny to some, and he'll  probably laugh WITH you, however, it's sad to me to see  life drifting away from one so loved and revered, in spite of his little amusing act.  Be sure when you clilck LOL, that you are  laughing "with" and not "at".  Bless his heart.
