Fans have been calling for a reunion of One Direction ever since they took a break in 2015. Niall Horan responded to the question of whether the famous fivesome would perform together again in a recent interview.
The 29-year-old singer said, “It’s just like the conversation hasn’t happened. It’s a great legacy to have. No, I don’t think [asking about the reunion] sucks the air out the room. It’s more, the answer’s still the same. The conversation hasn’t happened.”
He continued, “We speak regularly, but that conversation hasn’t happened. God knows whether it ends up being — it could be like the ‘Friends’ reunion, it could be a whole tour. God knows what it is, but no, it hasn’t been spoken about.”
Horan promised, however, that he would play a few One Direction songs during upcoming performances in support of his ‘The Show’ album. “I’ve never been one to hide away from it. They’re great songs,” he stated. “There’s so many on there that feel like my kind of stuff as well. And it’s good to make new versions as well.”
‘The Show’, Horan’s third studio album, will be released this month. The crooner’s prior album, ‘Heartbreak Weather’, peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 in 2020.
