Simon Cowell Teases One Direction's NEW Album...

"The album's fantastic," Simon told Capital's showbiz reporter Kevin Hughes, at the X Factor UK 2014 launch. "There's probably five or six tracks I've already heard that could be singles.

"There's some very different kinds of songs than what we've done before, they've taken a few more risks," he explained. 'Most importantly, the boys love writing, they love recording.

"I went on Twitter recently to say I don't think they're going to split up, they're having too good a time!" he added. "I think they could be doing this five, ten, twenty years if they wanted to!"

Rumour has it the album will be dropping before the end of this year… are you ready for the boys' return?
