Louis Tomlinson Plans To Write Songs With Liam Payne During 1D's Break

One Direction fans are not handling the band's impending “break” well; many assume it's a front for an eternal hiatus.

Members Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne, however, want to assure devout Directioners there's nothing to melt down about.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Tomlinson insisted 1D's separation would be temporary.

He explained,

We've had a very intense schedule. Five years, five albums, four tours… I'm sure it appears alarming when we say we're going on a break, but in reality, it's such a normal thing. If you look at other bands and other artists, they [go on breaks] all the time… but our intention and our love is for the band and that's always going to be the case…I think we deserve a little break.

With a baby on the way and a record label of his own in the works, Tomlinson is in desperate need of spare time, but he plans to “do some writing” with Payne.

He added,

I enjoy [writing], with Liam. But it's all kind of up in the air at the moment… We definitely will. I'm sure we will.

As long as this duo continues this creative partnership, 1D devotees will have music to look forward to during the dark ages of One Direction.
