One Direction‘s follow-up to their hit debut album Up All Night is coming sooner than you can swoon over the mere sight of the British boy band. The group has snatched up their fellow Brit Ed Sheeran and his teenage-written tunes for a few songs off their next release, which may be completed by summer’s end. “We’ve been recording already, actually,”1D member Niall Horan told MTV in a recent phone interview. “When we came back from Australia, we had a couple weeks off and then we went straight into the studio to get cracking on the next album.”

“We wrote an absolutely cracking song that we’re all kind of very excited about,” the 18-year-old singer said. “And then last week we were in LA and we had five days off the tour to record in LA so we recorded more there.” He adds that the band is spending all of July and August “getting the album done.”

The lead single for the new album is expected to be released around September. And no, as we broke it to you earlier this week, it won’t be the rumored track called “Heartbreaker.” “I read that on Twitter,” Niall told MTV. “It’s not true at all. We actually don’t even have a song called ‘Heartbreaker.’ That’s not gonna happen.”

Are you excited for a new album from One Direction? (That is, if they’re still calling themselves One Direction by the time the album comes out.)
