One Direction Reveals Inspiration Behind ‘Midnight Memories’

The Midnight Memories album is full of deep and emotional songs, and was dying to know what inspired them!

“To be fair, really, we just sat down and whatever the vibe of the chords were that the guys were playing, along with Julian (who works on the show as well), they kind of all just came about,” Liam told us EXCLUSIVELY. “It wasn’t about sitting down and saying we are going to write this type of song with that type. It was kind of just presented to us, and we said, ‘Ace, let’s just go for it.'”

We love that the guys’ inspiration was totally natural, and just went with the flow!

One Direction Reveals How They Feel About Critics’ Reviews Of ‘Midnight Memories’

How have the guys of 1D responded to reviews of the album?

“We wrote a lot of the songs, so that’s the main thing,” Liam told us. “It’s really nice this year because I’ve read a lot of reviews and stuff in the UK and it’s all been really nice stuff. To have a record that we have written getting nice reviews at this point in our career is absolutely amazing.”

With such a deep album, we aren’t surprised the reviews have been great. So does their sexy, manly new sound mean becoming more grown-up?

Exactly! That’s exactly what you’re going to see,” Liam said. We think the guys of 1D are complete studs now — so we can’t imagine what will happen if they become even sexier!
