Niall Horan has revealed that he writes a paragraph about each one of his songs before jotting down the lyrics.

The 23-year-old One Direction hunk recently took a break from working on his debut solo album but now is back and has been plotting his plans for each single.

Speaking on ‘The Chris Evans Breakfast Show’ on UK station BBC Radio 2 on Wednesday (08.02.17), the Irish star said: “I am in the middle of writing my album at the moment, so I have spent a lot of my time here [in Los Angeles]. There are a lot of writers out here, which is good.

“The way I write is I write concepts before, and come up with whether it will be a life story or making something up. I will always write something up, before I start writing [the song], maybe a paragraph about what I want the song to be based around and work from start to finish, let it flow out of your mouth and write it down as you’re going.”

The star admits he has good days and bad days writing, he explained: “I feel like, at the moment, I go through phases where I am writing some good stuff and some bad stuff. But at the moment, I think I am writing some good stuff, hopefully. It’s been great, absolutely hectic. I’ve got to keep writing.”

The hitmaker previously revealed that he pushed back the date of the album release, saying: “I am taking my time on it. I don’t want to rush it. I said it would be out at the start of the summer but I might push it back now a small bit. I don’t really have an idea. I’ll keep writing until it’s there and when it’s there I’ll let everyone know. It’s not going to be all singles.”
