The 'Lego House' star says the 'One Thing' band will record a number of tracks he has penned.

Ed Sheeran has revealed he has written several songs One Direction are keen to record for their new album, and says he has plans to head into the recording studio with them later this summer.

The 'Lego House' star previously penned the song 'Moments' from One Direction's debut album 'Up All Night', released last year to huge sales success, and Ed says he is once again working with the 'What Makes You Beautiful' stars on their follow-up record.

"I wrote a couple of songs when I was 17 that One Direction want for their next album," Ed revealed recently, reports PerezHilton.com. "I'm going into the studio in August to produce the tracks for them."

Last week One Direction confirmed they were back in the recording studio working on their second studio album, and admitted they "can't wait" for fans to hear some of the new music they are currently working on.
