One Direction are planning to release their second album before Christmas in a bid to maintain their global fame.
The X Factor stars only launched their debut album Up All Night, seven months ago.
A source told a Sunday newspaper that the lads are hoping to capitalise on the lucrative Christmas market.
An insider told the Daily Star Sunday: "The plan is to have a new single out around November, with the album to follow a week or two later."
Meanwhile, One Direction recently hit the headlines when Liam Payne revealed that Harry Styles has loads of "celebrity" mates.
The teen heartthrob told a Sunday newspaper that the 18-year-old has a list of "secret" phone numbers.
Liam told Celebs on Sunday that Styles does not readily share the details from his showbiz address book.
He is quoted as saying: "Harry has loads of secret celebrity phone numbers and we find out about them later.
"We'll see something in the papers and be like: "What's going on here?" and he'll be like: "Oh, it's Gary from Take That or whoever, don't worry about it.
"He's the biggest celeb flirt in the world."
