Washington D.C. [USA], Nov. 30 (ANI
): Not all hope is lost for One Directioners as it seems the boys will return sooner or later, following a hiatus after the release of their fifth album last year.
' One Direction
' member Niall Horan
told a British paper that the band " will be back
. We would be silly not to.ridiculous," confirming rumors that the band's extended break will not be permanent, reports People magazine.
The 23-year-old singer has spent his free time establishing himself as a solo artist, and released his first single, 'This Town' in September.
At a recent red carpet event in Los Angeles, Horan said that his bandmates were "all doing [their] own thing.I don't think anyone needs to worry about us - we are fine."
The hiatus was a welcome break for the British pop stars, who had churned out nearly an album every year since their creation on 'The X Factor'.
However, even with some off time, the four have stayed busy.
As Horan continues recording music, Harry Styles
has been testing his acting chops in Christopher Nolan's ' Dunkirk
' and Liam Payne
has been working on his own solo material following a July deal with 'Capitol'. Louis Tomlinson
has taken on the role of new father following the birth of his son Freddie in January. The 24-year-old English crooner previously told EW.com that he hoped he would spend his extended break writing new music, with some help from Payne.
Their former fifth member Zayn Malik
, left the band in 2015, and has since debuted his solo album 'Mind of Mine', featured singles 'Pillowtalk' and 'Like I Would' and a song 'Flower' sung entirely in Urdu.(ANI
