The 'Live While We're Young' stars reveal they didn't want to change too much as they would "scare people off".
One Direction's Niall Horan has told Capital that One Direction's forthcoming album 'Midnight Memories' will be "different" to their previous two efforts.
The group release their third album next month and the Irish star admitted the boys were conscious of not changing too much for fear of scaring people off.
"It's [the album] a bit different this time," he explained. "We've definitely kept our pop melodies and stuff like that. But we didn't want to change it too much.
"People think 'Oh we've got a third album now let's change it totally' but you actually scare people off by doing that."
Speaking about the changes they made, he added: "We just wanted to change it up a little bit to give it more of an edge and obviously as you said – we gained a lot more creative control. We were able to write a lot more of it."
The 'Best Song Ever' star added: "It was a much better album this time round and this personally out favourite of the three albums and we're just really excited.
"It's very edgy, loads of guitars, loads of drums and then obviously you've got your ballads there too."
