Ed Sheeran writes song for One Direction's new album

Ed Sheeran has penned a track for the next One Direction album.

The boyband are due to release 'FOUR' on November 17 and Sheeran, who has previously contributed the likes of 'Little Things' to the group, could have work on the record.

He told MTV at the weekend that his song is scheduled to appear on the album, but he appreciates that it could be pulled.

Sheeran said: "I got a call from [Simon] Cowell the other day. But you never know, it might happen last minute where it’s taken off, like that’s how it works in this industry, so you never know."

One Direction's Zayn Malik meanwhile said to MTV: "The one that he wrote, more of a ballad but I think we are going in that kind of lane. It sounds cool, we’ll take that."

The band added that it is "more slow then stadium rock".
