Liam Payne Reveals Album Release Date Ahead of GMA Performance

Thursday, 17 May, 2018

He said: "I found it very odd".

Liam Payne has revealed that being in One Direction "nearly killed" him.

Although we love these two individually, we never thought they would cross paths except at the occasional Jingle Ball, and the former One Direction is making us think that a future duet could actually be a possibility.

Payne has so far released a handful of singles as a solo artist, including Strip That Down featuring Quavo - released in May past year - and For You with Rita Ora.

Payne first auditioned for "The X-Factor" when he was 14 and then returned to the competition a few years later.

"There have been some tough times", he said.

His One Direction bandmates Harry Styles and Niall Horan have already released solo albums, with Styles hitting the number one spot past year, while Louis Tomlinson is also set to release his own album.

Chatting to KISS FM's Where's Your Head At?' campaign, Liam explained: "When the band started our break I struggled with the idea of becoming famous again, it scared the living daylights out of me".

The One Direction star performed on "Good Morning America" for their Summer Concert Series live from New York's Central Park on Tuesday, where he revealed the release date for his record. "I think he's doing fantastic, but I could hear the slightest bit of sorrow in a recent song he wrote, and I wanted to make sure he was all good".

After going solo, Payne released his first single in 2017.

"I just met him [Jay-Z] at Coachella a couple of weeks ago", J Balvin said.

He claimed, "I've got a good mix of attractive people on my album, which is amazing" and now we just wanna see the tracklist ASAP! "They don't have to be a psychologist - just people who are friendly, someone to talk to", he added.
