It drops on Aug. 24.
After dropping a string of hit singles, Liam Payne announced on Thursday night (Aug. 16) that he's ready to unleash his debut EP. The effort, First Time, will be released on Aug. 24, and you can pre-order the title track featuring French Montana now.
Payne also posted an emotional letter to fans explaining why the EP is coming out before his full-length debut solo album, which he says he finished a while ago. "As you may know, the last few months have seen some big changes for me," he wrote. "I looked at some of the songs on my album which were done a while ago and they felt from another age. I'm determined for my debut album to truly represent me. I'm now back in the studio working hard to finalise the final few new songs on the record -- I'm genuinely excited about the music I'm writing and recording and I can't wait for it to be ready for you all."
