Liam Payne together with Swedish DJ Alesso went on Instagram Live on Sunday afternoon to talk about new music (the pair released their collaborative single “Midnight” recently), but of course, fans could not resist asking questions about One Direction.
Fans have been speculating that Liam, Harry Styles, Niall Horan, and Louis Tomlinson have something special in store as the band’s 10th anniversary is just a few months away. And if you’ve been wondering, fans have also hypothesized that Zayn Malik could also take part on the celebrations.
One Directioners noticed that Liam, Harry, Niall and Louis and the official One Direction account each started following Zayn on Twitter again last weekend, after his exit from the band in 2015. Others have also pointed out that on Google, Zayn was no longer listed as an “ex-member” of the band and is now back to being listed as “vocals.”
By the looks of it, Liam has confirmed that in fact, there is something on-going which involves some of the One Direction members.
During their Instagram Live, Alesso told Liam that there were so many One Direction questions, but he feels like he doesn’t want to put the singer on the spot because he knows that he can’t say too much.
Liam then shared than recently, he has been talking to Niall on FaceTime and since most of them are in London, at the moment, they’ve been trying to arrange the first group FaceTime with the boys.
The singer added that he can’t say too much and that Louis has told him off for disclosing a bit of their plans the other day, to which Alesso replied that the whole world is about to explode. Liam then jokingly replied that Alesso can come and fill in for Zayn and join the band.
Furthermore, fans also observed that on Apple Music, all five of the band’s albums are now available and top it all off, the official 1D website has reactivated for the first time since the band’s hiatus in 2016.
Liam first ignited reunion rumors when he told The Sun that he had been keeping in touch with his former bandmates to talk about One Direction’s milestone anniversary. He shared that they’ve all been speaking together a lot over the last few weeks, and that they’ve seen very interesting things that they haven’t seen for a long time or never seen before.
He added that there are a few different things that they are all working on to try and make happen and that people around are forwarding emails.
Harry caught up with SiriusXM earlier this month and made fans giddy when asked if he’d be open to reuniting with his former bandmates over a Zoom call for a social-distancing inspired performance. He answered that he doesn’t know if that’s the reunion they had in mind, that he doesn’t know if that would be the way to do it, and that he’ll have a quick whip-round.
