One Direction History & Sam Smith Taking Break From Music

One Direction History & Sam Smith Taking Break From Music

one direction history 2015 gossipAs boy band One Direction gears up for their release of their fifth album, Made in the A.M., they put out one more song that is featured on the album. On Friday, One Direction put out a song called “History” as a farewell to their fans.

Back in August, the band announced that they are planning to take a hiatus after releasing their album. The boys are planning to venture into some solo projects. Additionally, band member Louis Tomlinson will be becoming a father in a few months. While they assure fans that this isn’t the last they will hear from the band; the boys are looking forward to a break. Since mentor Simon Cowell on X Factor UK put the boys together back in 2010, they have been non-stop putting out music and touring around the world. In addition, they dealt with the drama of Zayn Malik quitting the band earlier in the year.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Liam explains that “History” is like a modern version of “You’ve Got A Friend in Me.” He went on to say, “More than anything, the song is about the way the fans and everyone have created this massive thing- One Direction – over the past five years.”

Lyrics in the song include, “You and me, we got a whole lot of history / we could be the greatest thing the world has ever seen.” And “So don’t let it go / we can make some more / we can live forever.”

Hopefully this song helps “Directioners” (aka diehard fans of One Direction) get some closure and become more at peace with the band’s decision to take a break.

Earlier in the year the singer took a break in order to allow his vocal chords to heal after surgery. However, this didn’t seem to be enough time off for Sam as he revealed on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show that he plans to take a full year off from work.

On Friday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Ellen tries to get some clarification from Sam by asking, “Now you’ve decided to just take a year off and do nothing?”

In which, Sam replied, “It’s actually a really recent decision. This could change. I change my mind all the time, but I decided a few months ago that I need to have a little bit of a break.”

Sam went on to explain what he plans to do with his time when on break. He joked, “My music is so personal, and I need to live my life. I basically need to kiss some more boys so I can write some songs.”

Ellen responded, “I was gonna say we need to hear more stories,” with Sam answering, “I need to go and make the stories so I can write about them.”

In typical Ellen fashion, the daytime talk show host gifted Sam with an all-in-one La-Z-Boy that had a mini piano and music stand attached to it. She also gave him a miniature version of the chair for his new cat, Henry so they can both enjoy some downtime together for the next while.
