ONE Direction’s new album will be a “musical rainbow”.
The boy band – which consists of Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson – will release their fourth album, ‘Four’, on November 17 and fans can expect a “pretty diverse” group of songs.
Julian Bunetta, who co-wrote some of the band’s hit tracks including ‘Best Song Ever’ and new single ‘Steal My Girl’, revealed to MTV News: “There is probably a whole bunch of stuff in between them (‘Steal My Girl’ and ‘Fireproof’) that sound nothing like each other. So it’s just one big One Direction musical rainbow; one song is green and one song is blue, one song is red.”
Julian put the diverse sound down to the different music tastes of the individual members. He explained: “There are five different individuals in this group and they all have five different tastes, so naturally I think the music is going to be pretty diverse because of that.”
The band were reportedly keen to continue collaborating with songwriters on ‘Four’ after the success of their third album, ‘Midnight Memories’, which topped the charts in over 19 countries and was named the biggest selling artiste album of 2013 in the UK.
Julian added: “I think ‘Midnight Memories’ was a huge album because they had so much creative input and it worked, and it separated them from the traditional boy band model. BANG!
