One Direction will apparently record new music as they tour around the world.
“One Direction will travel with their own studio in tow when they play stadium dates. It’s going to cost a few quid but then, considering the amount of cash they’re making on the tour, they can afford it,” a source told British newspaper The Sun.
“The boys are all writing more and more themselves these days so it will allow them to develop as songwriters. Because of the shows across the globe they’ll have no time out to record so this is the best way to get the fourth album done.”
One Direction will be travelling to South America in April next year as part of their Where We Are tour, before they carry on performing across Europe.
“It was all worked out as part of the deal they did with Simon Cowell and Syco records earlier this month,” an insider added.
It was recently reported that One Direction had signed a new deal worth £10 million with music mogul Simon Cowell.
This will see the heartthrobs release another three albums under Simon’s Syco record label by 2016.
Two of the albums will feature new material, while the third will be a greatest hits compilation.
One Direction’s third album, Midnight Memories, is slated for release in late November.
It includes their recent hit single Best Song Ever.
On Sept. 19, 2013, One Direction announced more concert dates in Europe for the group’s 2014 tour, which will have One Direction headlining stadiums for the first time. Tickets for the added concert dates go on sale on Sept. 28, 2013.
One Direction is the biggest-selling act to emerge from “The X Factor.” (One Direction came in third place on “The X Factor” U.K. in 2010.) The group’s sold-out 2013 world tour of arenas went to Europe and North America, and goes to Australia and New Zealand in September and October. Many of these tour dates sold out a year in advance.
As previously reported, One Direction’s third album, “Midnight Memories,” is set for a worldwide release on Nov. 25, 2013. “Midnight Memories.” is expected to debut at No. 1 in several countries, as did One Direction’s first two albums: “Up All Night” and “Take Me Home.”
“Best Song Ever,” the first single from “Midnight Memories,” was a Top 10 hit in many countries when it was released in July 2013. The other songs on “Midnight Memories” are to be announced.
Here are the updated tour dates for One Direction’s 2014 tour. The recently added dates have asterisks next to them. More tour dates are to be announced.

*Added date. Tickets go on sale on Sept. 28, 2013.
ONE Direction star Liam Payne has apologised to his Australian fans, some of whom were left in tears, after he and his band mates secretly snuck out of Adelaide Airport.
A One Direction song called Diana, said to be from the band’s third album Midnight Memories, has been leaked.
It seems Directioners just can’t wait until something is officially released before unveiling it to the world ahead of time.
Diana has found its way online and fans are already in love with it.
The track is said to be dedicated to the group’s fans all over the world as a way of letting them know that they appreciate them.
Despite the mushy subject matter, it is an upbeat, positive pop song with a summery feel, and is a bit different to the generic style of music they have been putting out up to this point.
The lyrics include: ‘Diana/Let me the one to/Light a fire inside your life/You can own me/You don’t even know me/But I can feel you crying’.
Diana will be welcome news to the fivesome’s global fanbase who have so far failed to attract the lads’ attention.
Midnight Memories, the follow up to last year’s Take Me Home, is released on November 9 and is available to pre-order now.
Sir Elton John has praised One Direction for their strong work ethic and insisted he hopes the superstar boy band are learning the “good money” he thinks they deserve.
The Rocket Man hitmaker has defended the superstar boy band from their critics and insisted their vast wealth is justified by the effort they have put into their careers thus far.
He told the Mail on Sunday newspaper’s Event magazine: “If you ignore the young or the old you are doomed. They are a great British pop band. I just hope they are getting good money because they are working bloody hard.
“I like their songs. I think they are at the age where it doesn’t matter if you don’t sleep because you are just enjoying the fame so much.
“I don’t think they’d work if one of them left but I just think, Good luck to them. ”
While he praised the Best Song Ever group, he only had sympathy for actress Lindsay Lohan, suggesting her recent troubles and the “madness” of her personal life has taken the emphasis away from her initially promising big screen career.
He added: “I hate think of Lindsay because she has a talent, she was a great actress, and then it became all about the madness, the parties and everyone forgets about what put them there in the first place – they get lost in the idea that they are famous for who they are, not what they are.”
One Direction fragrance set to net boys £360k in its first WEEK as fans desperate to douse themselves in eau de 1D
It seems the One Direction boys have another hit on their hands. But it’s their perfume that’s setting the tills ringing this time,
Escentual.com CEO Rakesh Aggarwal said: ‘Our Moment is predicted to sell around 180,000 units in the first week alone, making it one of the fastest selling fragrances of all time.
One Direction’s Harry Styles backtracks on support for Miley as he blames twerking for ‘promoting promiscuity’
Harry Styles being a ladies man you would think he might enjoy watching the odd ‘twerk’ every now and then.
He said at the time: ‘She’s quite shy and I think it’s time she came out of her shell. [It was] family friendly. You could watch it with your kids and your grandma.’
The popular dance move involves a person shaking their hip and butt in an up-and-down bouncing motion.
This isn’t the sort of hot stuff we usually mean when referring to One Direction.
Released on Monday (July 22), the cut is on course for a top five start on the chart — based on early forecasts of its first-week sales, streams and airplay. The top 10 of the new Hot 100 will be revealed on Wednesday, July 31.
Industry sources suggest the song should sell over 300,000 downloads by the end of the tracking week on Sunday, July 28. At the present, it doesn’t seem like it will match the opening week of its current record week — set when last year’s “Live While We’re Young” started with 341,000, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
“Young” debuted and peaked at a career-high No. 3 on the Hot 100 and No. 1 on the Hot Digital Songs chart.
In terms of streams — which factor into the Hot 100′s methodology, like sales and airplay — the song is off to a fast start as well. First day U.S. streams for Vevo on YouTube were 825,000, according to Nielsen BDS. How those U.S. streams project over the course of the full week is difficult to predict, but if the first day plays are matched for the remainder of the tracking period, the seven-day total could be near 6 million. On a global scale, the song’s official music video is off to a record-setting start, having broken Vevo’s one-day worldwide views record.
Radio is also on the “Best Song Ever” bandwagon, although with nowhere near the fervor of music-buying-and-streaming fans so far.
“Song” debuted this week on Billboard’s Mainstream Top 40 radio airplay chart at No. 40 after just less than three days of availability. It drew 783 spins on 106 of the chart’s 159 reporters, according to BDS (airplay which translated to 5 million audience impressions in that span). As of this posting, the song has nudged up to No. 35 on the building Mainstream Top 40 chart, which encompasses top 40 airplay from Monday morning to now.
Despite the group’s high profile, top 40 radio has so far been hesitant to fully embrace One Direction. Its debut smash “What Makes You Beautiful” rose to No. 3 on Mainstream Top 40 but the act’s next four chart entries prior to “Song” peaked between Nos. 15 and 19. “Live While We’re Young,” for instance, reached No. 16 on Mainstream Top 40, despite that lofty 341,000-download/No. 1 Hot Digital Songs start last year.
One Direction Talk About Their Dancing Skillz, Taylor Swift & Life On Tour: ‘We’re Really Not That Diva!’
And while they’ve been on the road, it seems life on the move has come with some downsides! Louis explained that things can get a little lonely despite the massive crowds:
“It could definitely be a lonely job. I wouldn’t be able to do this if I were on my own.”
What’s more, during filming of their This Is Us documentary, Morgan Spurlock, who was privy to the boys’ private lives, noticed some of their troubles, particularly regarding Taylor Swift:
“It gets frustrating for them at times, because suddenly stuff gets printed that isn’t even true. I saw an article that said, “Harry Styles demands Taylor Swift be taken out of the movie.’ But by the time we started filming in January, they had already split up.”
LOLz. We can only imagine how annoying that must be!
Ch-ch-check out more of our favorite quotes …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
On their lack of dancing during shows, Niall explained:
“Most of the reason is that we can’t. No one ever tried to make us.”
Liam, on not being finicky with ridiculous requests:
“We haven’t actually got a rider. We never actually sat there and made one. They bring us the stuff they think we like. We’re not really that diva.”
