While there have been a few people speaking out about the new One Direction album Take Me Home and praising the album for how much better it is than their debut album Up All Night, there is one person who does not believe that there is much difference between the two. Songwriter Savan Kotecha claims that they decided to stay close with the sound of the album, as that is what fans loved about it.
Kotecha explained, “There are a few songs that are more of a development from the first album. We only really had one major hit from the first album, so for most of the world people have only just heard the one song, so to go ahead and change everything wouldn't be the right thing to do at this early stage.”
He added, "There are a few songs on the album that move the sound on a little bit. But for America – I was talking to Rob Stringer yesterday who's the head of their US label – Live While We're Young feels like the third single in America. The idea was to kind of continue the whole fun, What Makes You Beautiful kind of vibe – but maybe make the lyrics a bit more naughty.”
One Direction are set to release their new album Take Me Home on November 12 in the UK and November 13 in the US. Their new single Live While We’re Young is out now.
