Each have each been busy with their thriving solo careers ever since the remaining four members announced an indefinite hiatus back in 2016 (Zayn Malik officially left the group in 2015). While Styles seems to be prepping for an imminent release of new material following his self-titled debut solo album in 2017, bandmates Niall Horan and Liam Payne have also dropped new music in recent weeks. (The former unveiled “Nice To Meet Ya,” the lead single off his forthcoming sophomore solo album, last Friday, Oct. 4, and the latter returned from a nearly year-long musical break with his A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie collab “Stack It Up” late last month.)
Meanwhile, Louis Tomlinson changed the direction of his solo sound with the rock-tinged “Kill My Mind” in early September. And though he has stepped away from the group, we’ll always love Zayn, who recently contributed his take on Aladdin’s “A Whole New World” with Zhavia Ward for the soundtrack to the Disney classic’s 2019 live-action remake, as well as vocals on a new version of Shaed’s “Trampoline.”
With all five guys churning out new music, it’ll be a race to see whose album drops first. Will it be Harry? Niall? Zayn with a surprise follow-up to Icarus Falls?
