"In the studio with Harry Styles in LA writing a tune, sounds massive," tweeted Kodaline. "He's gone and done a drawing of us."

Styles is believed to have written 18 unheard songs, including one with singer-songwriter John Legend for X Factor USA duo Alex and Sierra's debut album.
Lyrics to the song, the title of which is unknown, are thought to read: “I saw your face/ I heard your name/ Felt the blood rushing through my veins/ If you remember/ How could I forget?”
Some fans might be panicking that all these external projects spell bad news for the band. But despite taking a three month hiatus, One Direction insist they have "no intention" of splitting up.
