Liam Payne records dance 'banger'
One Direction star Liam Payne has been busy in the studio and has told fans he has recorded a "banger" dance tune
One Direction singer Liam Payne has been busy recording a dance "banger".
While fans may know 1D more for their catchy harmonies, it appears that Liam, 20, is keen to take the boy band down a different musical path.
The singer posted a black and white photo of himself on Instagram with an accompanying caption that read: "Just going to bed been studio written a pure banger for you guys who like dance more info to come."
Fans of One Direction were quick to comment on the post and the initial reaction was overwhelmingly positive.
One fan enthused: "Can't wait!!!"
Liam and the other 1D band members, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan, have all been writing separately for their next album in order to take the LP - the follow-up to 'Midnight Memories' - in a new direction.
Zayn has been working with producer Naughty Boy, while Harry has been writing with Ed Sheeran - who previously penned their hit 'Little Things'.
Harry has previously revealed he always tries to draw on personal experiences when he's writing lyrics.
He said: "You're always going to draw inspiration for things that you're feeling, things that you've felt. It's kind of impossible not to unless there's an exact scenario that you're trying to write a song for."
