Liam Payne Riding Solo With a new Capitol Records’ deal
Liam Payne has announced his post-One Direction.
The 22-year-old former boy band member took to twitter that he has signed a deal with Capitol Records.
“Happy to have signed to Capitol. They have an amazing history of artists , I hope I can follow in their footsteps,” he tweeted. Capitol Records’ catalog includes music icons like The Beatles.
Payne is the latest member of One Direction to move on to a solo career.
Former member Harry Styles has moved onto acting and is currently filming Christopher Nolan’s World War II. Meanwhile, Zayn Malik continues to pursue his own music career after leaving the band last year.
Payne followed up the tweet with another paying homage to his roots: “One direction will always be my home and family but I’m excited to see what this new chapter brings.”
