One Direction have started work on their third album.
'We wrote three songs on the last album but this is different,' reveals Louis, 21.
'Liam and I have been spending our days off writing.'
But Louis is aware that 1D's decision to come up with their own music might not appeal to all - and Harry Styles, 19, agrees.
'It'll be interesting to hear what people have to make of it but you'll always get criticised,' he tells The Sun.
Harry adds: 'Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but it's easy to hate One Direction.'
