One Direction singer Niall Horan has told Capital that the positive reaction to their new album 'Midnight Memories' has been "ridiculous".

The group are on course to claim this week's number one spot with the record, which was released this week.

The Irish singer admitted the group wanted to change things up a little but never want to scare off anyone.

"We tried to change it up a little bit. But if you change it up too much you can scare people off so we didn't want to do," he explained. "The music that we do, we actually enjoy listening to ourselves.

"We're happy that everyone's liking it and hopefully we gather a few more fans."

Receiving such great reaction from fans is something that makes the whole process so worthwhile for Niall.

"It's amazing. The reaction to it is just ridiculous. We spent a lot of time working on it this year, so thank god it's paid off," he declared.
