The 1975's Matt Healy writing for One Direction

The 1975 frontman Matt Healy is penning a tune for One Direction.

The news was confirmed by the musician's mother - actress Denise Welch - who told Digital Spy:

"He's writing a song for them. I'm friends with Harry Styles' mum, Anne. I always know when she's tweeted me because I've got 27,000 of the 1D army and the 1975 army [on my timeline] and they go into meltdown."

Referring to her son's life on the road, Welch added: "I can relate to Harry's mum because I know how much I miss Matthew. She said that Harry left home for an audition at 16 and never came home. That's how it is - four days at Christmas and that was it...I miss him desperately and sometimes I feel like I've lost him to another world."

The 1975 had previously covered One Direction on Radio 1's Live Lounge, whilst Healy also recently met the band.

One Direction's Harry Styles meanwhile was recently pranked by Healy whilst on Radio 1's Breakfast Show.

The 1975 man called up the singer and asked him for an emergency loan of money - something which he agreed to.
