When it was first announced that the British boyband One Direction were going to go on a bit of a hiatus, many people suggested that it would not last for too long and that they would soon be back together. However, as the time continues to pass and the boys have yet to get back together, it seems more and more like that what was initially called a hiatus, is actually a full on split.
Irish hunk Niall Horan rose to fame with One Direction and has decided to embark on his own solo music career, since the boyband split up. Niall not only helped to pen a few of the songs for One Direction but he has also been writing some of his own solo material, and the talented musician has now revealed some of the secrets to his song writing formula.
Horan was a guest on the Chris Evans Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 2, when he explained, "I am in the middle of writing my album at the moment, so I have spent a lot of my time here [in Los Angeles]. There are a lot of writers out here, which is good. The way I write is I write concepts before, and come up with whether it will be a life story or making something up."
He added, "I will always write something up, before I start writing [the song], maybe a paragraph about what I want the song to be based around and work from start to finish, let it flow out of your mouth and write it down as you're going. I feel like, at the moment, I go through phases where I am writing some good stuff and some bad stuff. But at the moment, I think I am writing some good stuff, hopefully. It's been great, absolutely hectic. I've got to keep writing."
Niall Horan is preparing for the release of his debut solo album but has pushed back the release, as he does not want to rush it.
