Niall Horan dropped his highly anticipated second solo single, "Slow Hands" and although everyone is pumped for more new music, this means Niall is doing tons of interviews, spilling more secrets about his One Direction days. He just recently sat down with The Sun's Dan Wooten for the podcast "Bizarre Life" and while Niall admitted the hiatus the band is on won't last forever, it was a long-time coming due to their busy work schedule and will continue for a bit while longer.
"It was a long time, at that intensity, that pressure and to keep going at that pace, we felt like we either wanted to chill or do out own thing and for me, I just kind of chilled for a while and then the songwriting started again," Niall explained. "But at the minute it's exactly where it was six months ago. I'm going to probably end up touring this, Harry will probably end up doing the same, probably Liam probably Louis, that's a year - time adds up. It's been a year and a bit already. We really don't want to put a time on it. But when that phone call does come, no matter whoever it comes from, we're back again."
But wait, what if say only three of the remaining members want to come back? Well, Niall said that's something they'll just have to think about if and when it happens.
"To be honest, I don't know the answer to that one. I'm guessing so. That's not a conversation we've had," he said.
And what about the one and only Zayn Malik, who left the band and went the solo route before the band went on a break? Well if he wanted to come back, Niall revealed that's something that could be a possibility.
"I'm sure the fans would love it and it would be great, but again I don't know," he said.
Fair enough. We're taking that as the 1D door is always open to all former members.
The "This Town" crooner did go on to briefly discuss when the guys all came back together to support Louis Tomlinson and his first solo performance on X Factor, right after his mom Johannah sadly passed away. Niall admitted that he, Harry Styles and Liam Payne immediately flew back to the U.K. to be by their friend's side, something they wanted to keep as private as possible.
"That's a tough song to sing and being out there on your own for the first time the week that something like that happens, must've been horrific for him. We were all in America at the same, I remember I was in New York and I heard about it and it was no doubt that was the next thing I was doing. I'm off, straight away," Niall shared. "So we all flew home, and we didn't want it to be a whole publicity thing, we didn't want that. It was in and out and seeing Louis for what it was and just be there to support him because it was a tough time."
They're legit fam for life so even if they're not making music together anytime soon, just know their bond is simply unbreakable. BRB, crying forever.
