EXCLUSIVE: One Direction’s Niall Horan Says New Album Is More “Party” Than Romantic
Sorry ladies, it looks like One Direction is all about having a good time. Even though there are millions of fans across the globe that pine for the British boy-banders, it appears as though their new album won’t be as romantic as you may think. We sat down for an exclusive interview with Niall Horan(!), where he spilled plenty of secrets about not only the “Live While We’re Young” music video, but their upcoming album, Take Me Home. Read on for the full Q&A!
Teen: What is something you can tell us about Take Me Home that most people don’t know yet?
Niall: There are a couple of songs on the album that might surprise people. We kept most of the album similar to the first one [Up All Night], but there are a couple songs on there that some people might be a little shocked with. It’s all good.
Teen: If you had to define the theme for the album, what would it be?
Niall: A house party, yeah baby!
Teen: Are there any romantic songs on the new album, or is it more of a party vibe?
Niall: It’s really “party.” It’s kind of like the first one, but the songs are better. It’s all good, baby.
Teen: How do you personally get inspired to write a song?
Niall: We just kind of sit in a room, and we’re lucky enough to work with some really great song writers, so we just chill and then someone comes up with an idea. Then we just go cracking on that, then I get out the guitar and play some chords, and then we just write the track afterwards.
Teen: What was the most fun part of filming the “Live While We’re Young” music video?
Niall: I think the whole pool bit that was the best part.
Teen: Whose idea was the rowboat dance move in “LWWY?”
Niall: You know Josh, our drummer? It’s basically based on him. We played a joke on him.
