Liam Payne Signs Solo Label Deal

Liam Payne is preparing to officially embark on a solo career after signing a new contract with Capitol Records UK.

Liam Payne announced the news to fans on on Thursday.

“Happy to have signed to @CapitolUK,” he writes. “They have an amazing history of artists, I hope I can follow in their footsteps.”

“One direction will always be my home and family but I’m very excited to see what this chapter brings,” he adds.

The news comes after Liam’s bandmate Harry Styles reportedly signed an $80 million (£60.6 million) contract with Columbia Records – the same label behind the group – in June.

Since One Direction went on hiatus in late 2015, the boys have been working on their own projects. Harry has been forging an acting career, after landing a role in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk, a World War II drama about the evacuation of Allied troops from French beaches in 1940, Louis Tomlinson is working on his record label and looking after son Freddie, and Niall Horan has been working on his golf management agency. Niall is also eyeing up a solo career, according to reports, with Simon Cowell’s label Syco and One Direction’s management Modest.

Liam has been writing his own music and earlier this year (16), his collaboration with rappers Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa leaked online. Fans were quick to assume the song, which was reportedly one of five tracks Liam, Juicy and producer TM88 had worked on together, was the British singer’s debut solo single.

However, he was quick to take to his social media accounts to set the record straight.

Liam is also being kept busy with his personal life and romance with Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.

Meanwhile, Zayn Malik was the first member of the group to go solo after leaving the band last year, and he has enjoyed a huge amount of success with singles including Pillowtalk and Like I Would.
