One Direction will apparently record new music as they tour around the world.
The British boyband – comprising Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson – will travel with a mobile recording studio next year. It seems the group made the decision so they entertain fans while finishing off their fourth album.
“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.One Direction adds more concert dates in Europe for 2014 world tour

One Direction’s first film This Is Us has apparently gone down well with the Golden Globes panel.
The film, released this summer, topped the box office in the UK and the US before being unleashed around the world, and this has not gone unnoticed among Golden Globes bosses.
Judges on the awards panel are said to have enjoyed the film, putting it on a good footing to get a gong at the event next year.
This Is Us is apparently a contender for the best documentary category as well as best original score and best original song for the band’s most recently single Best Song Ever.
If this comes to fruition, the lads – Niall, Louis, Zayn, Harry and Liam – will be heading back to Hollywood to work the awards circuit.
A Golden Globes insider told The Daily Star: ‘The One Direction film was really greeted with positive views. The story of it an examination of their lives made it interesting and the songs will definitely be shortlisted.’One Direction band member Liam Payne apologises to Adelaide fans
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.
Three-fifths of the boy band flew into Adelaide together on Sunday after catching a flight from Dubai on Saturday night, ahead of their highly anticipated Take Me Home tour.
Up to 200 eager girls had been waiting for hours to catch a glimpse of their idols, but excitement soon turned to disappointment when Payne, Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson bypassed their fans through a door at the back of the airport.
“Sorry we couldn’t stop in the airport they said it wasn’t safe ???? great to be in oz tho (sic),” Payne tweeted on Sunday.
Several girls were in tears after spending up to 13 hours waiting to see their idols, News Corp Australia reported.
Georgia, 17, told News Corp that she was angry that the stars didn’t greet their fans.
“I just feel really let down because we were so excited to see them and the least they could have done was poke their head out and wave before they left,” she said.
Harry Styles arrived solo, landing in Melbourne from Los Angeles Sunday morning before catching a connecting Qantas flight to Adelaide.
The 19-year-old heart-throb had to leap over seats to escape the throng of teenage girls who were waiting for him as he boarded the domestic flight.
The final band member, Niall Horan is expected to arrive in Australia on Monday.
“This is gona be soo fun ! I love it down under! Obsessed! Gona be a huge 5 weeks! Between aus and nz ! Uready for TMHT” Horan tweeted ahead of his arrival.
One Direction will play three sold-out concerts at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre from Monday night heading to Perth, Christchurch and Auckland before returning to Australia for shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
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.Harry Styles In Love With Cara Delevingne
There’s no doubt about it! Harry Styles, 19, is so in love with British model Cara Delevingne, 21, that he sat in the front row of Burberry’s London Fashion Week show on Sept. 16 to get the best view of her and also went to a ‘W’ party thrown in Cara’s honor on Sept 15. HollywoodLife.com has all the EXCLUSIVE details!
Harry is one smitten guy! He just turned up his wooing a notch by supporting Cara at the Burberry fashion show for London Fashion Week and at a party thrown in her honor for W magazine — and a source told us exclusively what happened at the soiree!
Harry Styles Goes to Burberry Show & ‘W’ Party To See Cara Delevingne
Harry Styles is showing the world that he is so in love with model and “it-girl” Cara Delevingne that he will stop at nothing to support her and show his true feelings for her. He sat in the front row at the show in Kensington Gardens, laughing with actress Sienna Miller and model Suki Waterhouse when his eyes weren’t glued to Cara. After she totally rocked the show, the One Direction heartthrob went backstage and posed for pictures with Cara, and he also went into the Burberry photobooth and took cute and funny photos that the label posted to their Instagram. So cute!
Harry and Cara also went to W magazine’s London Fashion Week opening party at The London Edition on Sept. 15, where Cara was the guest of honor. “Although Harry attended the party, which was in Cara’s honor, the model spent a majority of the night socializing with her model pal Georgia May Jagger,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Was Cara trying to play it cool? And when will they make their adorable relationship official?
Harry Styles & Cara Delevingne: In A Relationship?
Harry has adored Cara since 2011. He also went to the Burberry Prorsum show during London Fashion Week in 2012 and was rumored to be dating her then, but now they they are hanging out and going on dates again, it looks like it could be love since he came to see her in the show for the second year in a row! Was Taylor Swift, 23, just a passing interest until he could finally date Cara?
When HollywoodLife.com asked him at the Burberry show in 2012 about the No. 1 trait he looks for in a girlfriend, he told us EXCLUSIVELY, “A good sense of humor.”
Cara’s definitely got that! Known for her tomboy-ish personality and sense of humor, she’s a perfect fit for cheeky and silly Harry. We think the two Brits would be a fantastically fun couple, if only Cara can get past Harry’s flirtatious ways and Harry can fit into her nonstop schedule and career! However, they did squeeze a date in together when they went to see “The Book of Mormon” musical in London’s West End on Aug. 31.Harry at Burberry’s show
