Is One Direction planning to take a break?

There is no denying that the past few years have been absolutely mental for One Direction as they carved their path to world domination, and it looks like it has taken its toll.

Indeed, the boys have revealed that they may take a little time out before the release of their next original album.

Compose yourselves, fans, it’s not as bad as it might sound.

Speaking in a recent interview with In:Demand, band member Louis said: “We potentially might take a little more time on this record. That’s why they might think we’re going on a break, but we just want to take a little bit more time, that’s all.”

Allaying the panic of their legion of fans everywhere, band mate Zayn added: “We haven’t really got any sort of break in mind at the moment. We just want to get [the next album] out and see what [the fans] think of it.”

With rumours that the boys’ next album is set to be a greatest hits compilation, this will no doubt calm any worried fans out there!
