It appears that the new career of former One Direction member Liam Payne is already taking off, few days after he announced that he is finally going solo.
It can be noted that the 22-year-old singer was the last 1D member who announced about going to a different direction by signing a contract deal with Capitol Records.
As such, fans of the English-Irish boy band expressed nostalgia about seeing them on one stage performing their popular songs.
On Thursday, Liam Payne was spotted on his way to the recording studio in West London, Daily Mail UK reported.
Clad in an all-grey ensemble composed of a loose-fitting t-shirt paired with Nike joggers and Air Jordan shoes, the England-born artist reportedly looked so relaxed while walking side-by-side with two men.
“Very happy to have signed to my new record label Capitol Records,” he announced on Instagram. “They have such an amazing history of artists, I hope I can follow in the footsteps. One direction will always be my home and family but I’m very excited to see what this chapter brings.”
For his part, Capitol Records UK president Nick Raphael stated that they are excited to be working with Liam Payne.
‘It’s not often you get the chance to sign such a talented and ambitious 22 year old who has already conquered the world,” he said.
Two days before he was seen going to the recording studio, Entertainment Tonight revealed that Simon Cowell admitted about being slightly surprised to learn that the young singer has signed a solo deal with another label.
He shared, though, that despite his decision being unexpected, the 56-year-old “America’s Got Talent” judge still recognized the fact that things that do happen.
It can be recalled that the record producer was the one responsible for bringing Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik and Liam Payne together as One Direction.
