One Direction: We\'re all going to take a break but we\'re going to come back
One Direction say that they will be returning after their break next year.
The group have been talking to Greg James during their Radio 1 Live Lounge performance.
Liam Payne said it would be nice to have time to write songs without the pressure of touring and travelling around the world.
"Obviously we\'re all going to take a break for a bit first and then consider where we are in the world," Liam said.
"Then I just want to write songs. That\'s been the most fun process out of this, except for touring, the writing of the songs.
"We\'re going to come back, so there\'s something to write for as well, for us and for other people.

"We haven\'t really had time to write an album. Writing\'s not really a job, it\'s so much fun.
"We\'ve always had to rush it, so it\'s going to be nice for the next two years - I\'m going to write a few songs and see what happens."
One Direction announced that they\'d be taking a break after the release of their fifth studio album, Made in the AM, which is released on Friday.

"I\'m going to take over the world of music and Niall\'s becoming a golf pro."
They ended their On The Road world tour in Sheffield earlier this month.
One Direction are scheduled to perform at the American Music Awards a week on Sunday in Los Angeles and at the BBC Music Awards on 10 December at Birmingham\'s Genting Arena.
