One Direction Discuss 'New Songs, New Vibe' & 'No Control' at Billboard Music Awards

"It's going good so far. There's some nice vibes," Liam Payne says of the group's fifth studio effort.

The boys of One Direction were some of the biggest stars of the 2015 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night (May 17), winning multiple trophies while also making their first awards show appearance as a quartet. We caught up with 1D backstage, who told us about their "new songs, new vibe" and the fan push to make the Four highlight "No Control" a single.

"We've been working on the album for a while," Niall Horan told Billboard, "and then we came out here a couple of weeks ago to go in with our regular producer and songwriters that we always work with. So we've spent a bit of time out here writing some new stuff and recording at the same time."
