One Direction may be taking an indefinite hiatus next year following the release of its fifth studio album Made in the A.M., but that doesn't mean that members of the "Perfect" band won't still work together during the break. In a new interview, Louis Tomlinson revealed he's still going to write with his frequent partner Liam Payne while 1D takes a vacation.
In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Tomlinson opened up about the upcoming hiatus, and assured fans not to be worried.
"We've had a very intense schedule. Five years, five albums, four tours... I'm sure it appears alarming when we say we're going on a break, but in reality, it's such a normal thing. If you look at other bands and other artists, they [go on breaks] all the time," he said. "It really isn't as big and dramatic as it's been made out, but our intention and our love is for the band and that's always going to be the case."
So, what are his plans for the hiatus? He's at least planning on doing some writing with Payne.
"I enjoy that, with Liam. But it's all kind of up in the air at the moment. We definitely will. I'm sure we will," he said.
Together, Tomlinson and Payne have co-written on some of One Direction's most popular songs, including "No Control," "Steal My Girl" and "Midnight Memories." On Made in the A.M., the two have also joined forces for a few songs.
Made in the A.M. is due to arrive on Nov. 13.
