For years, Liam Payne was signed to Sony as a member of One Direction, but now Liam Payne has signed a major solo record contract with Universal’s, Capitol Records UK.
Liam Payne is the first member of One Direction not to re-sign with a Sony label, after Zayn Malik inked a solo deal with RCA and Harry Styles was snapped up by Columbia. Payne, who has sold over 20 million albums as part of One Direction, has hired a new management team, more details of which will be announced in due course.
Liam Payne will soon enter the studio to record his first solo album. For now, stream his first single without the rest of One Direction below.
