Liam Payne is producing his own album.
The One Direction singer - who is expecting a baby with girlfriend Cheryl - is currently working on his debut solo venture, and has reportedly enlisted the help of DJs and producers to teach him how to produce his own music, rather than hiring someone else to do it for him.
Producer Digital Farm Animals - real name Nicholas Gale - confirmed Liam's decision to produce his own music, as he said: "I've been doing a lot with Liam.
"I've not heard much of the other stuff that he's been doing but I can say he is really talented.
"He writes very well, he's also started producing as well.
"He just comes up with these great ideas so it made sense for him to have more control, I guess.
"I kind of helped him, the stuff that we have been doing I helped produce it, showed him some things and we wrote it. I mean he has so many talents that people don't know."
And Nicholas also revealed that Liam, 23, won't be recreating the pop sound he was known for in the boy band - which was also comprised of Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, and Harry Styles - as he's more interested in focusing on "R&B stuff".
He added to the Daily Star newspaper: "I have no idea when it will come out, but we have been working on a few bits together. He is doing a lot of R&B stuff but he's also dipping into dance.
"The things we are doing are definitely down the dance lane."
Meanwhile British pop star Conor Maynard revealed last month that it won't "be long" before the 'History' hitmaker is ready to debut his music to the world.
Conor said: "We have had sessions where we wrote stuff that can go to Liam Payne, for his album, because every now and then we do a session that won't be for me.
"It will be fore someone else and Liam is someone we have wanted to write for.
"I haven't actually spoken to him in a while, I don't know how close he is to finishing his stuff but I don't think it will be long now."
