One Direction's producer Julian Bunetta has said the band were keen to make their forthcoming new album quite good considering it might be the last one they ever do.
"There was a feeling of, ‘Well, we’re going to take a break, and anything in the world can happen during that time off,’” Bunetta mused to Billboard.
“It’s the first time of there being some uncertainty, of not having things planned out beforehand, since they were 16 years old. There was definitely a vibe of making [the album] the best it can possibly be, and knowing it has to last as long as it needs to until we make another record — if we make another record.”
Asked what the songs were about, Bunetta — who co-wrote and co-produced the likes of 'Story Of My Life', 'Night Changes' and 'Drag Me Down' — said the following words:
"There’s a song about losing someone that isn’t Zayn. There’s also a song about the band being on shaky ground and not knowing what the future is. There are songs about love, there’s a song that is a little more sexually charged. It’s all over the map.”
So while this might all sound a bit sadface emoji, it was actually quite liberating really.
“We were having so much fun when we were making this record — going out, having parties, really enjoying ourselves and not taking any day for granted that we got to spend with each other," he continued.
“When you’re faced with some uncertainty, you appreciate the moment more. The moment that you’re in becomes really special and sacred. It was definitely one of the most fun album-making processes I’ve had because of that.”
It's not known when the album will be out exactly but it's safe to assume it will be in November let's be honest.
