And while he seems to be having fun with his solo career, he hasn’t written off his other gig with One Direction. While he admits to “The Sun” that it may be a while before the band gets back together, he insists it will happen.
“It’s been a year and a bit already [since the hiatus],” he says. “We don’t want to put a time on it.” He adds, “Time adds up…but when that phone call does come, no matter whoever it comes from, we’re back again.”
