The 'Lego House' star opens up on writing for the boyband's new album.

Ed Sheeran has admitted that he expects one of the two tracks he wrote for One Direction's new album 'Take Me Home' to become a future single.

The 'You Need Me, I Don't Need You' star told MTV News that both songs are about his former girlfriend and from the same selection as the one he penned for their 2011 debut 'Up All Night'.

"The two songs that I wrote for One Direction's album are, they're the same subject matter as the last song I wrote for the last album 'cause they're from the same batch of songs," he confessed. "They're both about my ex-girlfriend."

The 'Small Bump' star admitted that he couldn't divulge details on the titles of the tracks, but opened up on the theme and mood of the songs.

"One of them is kind of a getting-back together song. One of them is an appreciation song," he said. "I can't say the titles. The song that I think will be the single, one of the singles, is kind of a very sweet song."

One Direction recently made their return with new single 'Live While We're Young', which premiered last week.

The boyband also debuted the music video for the song after it was played for the first time on Capital.

Meanwhile, Ed is also currently working on his second studio album and will head back out on tour in the UK next month for a series of autumn dates.
