Simon Cowell Spills All About One Direction’s New Song ‘18’ Written By Ed Sheeran


If One Direction’s new material is anything to go by, we can expect big things from their latest song written by Ed Sheeran – and Simon Cowell agrees!

When Max quizzed Simon about the song, he also let the title slip – the new single will be called ‘18’.

Simon revealed, “He wrote a great song. The funny story was that Ed came down to see me at Got Talent, as he was performing, and he came up to the dressing room and I went, ‘Where’s the One Direction song?’. And he said ‘I didn’t know you wanted a song from me’ and I went ‘yeah’“And then literally a week later he comes round to my house with his manager one night, turned up around 11 o’clock and said ‘Do you like this song?’ and he played me ‘18’ and it took me about a millionth of a second to say yes.”

“It’s turned out really well, Ed’s a real star and the fact that he did it in such a short space of time but he was so focused and he’s a brilliant songwriter. You know what I love about Ed? He’s generous. He could have kept that song but he loves writing hits.”

And with such HUGE success as a band, does Simon ever see the boys going solo in the future?

He revealed, “Look, I think eventually, whether they do it within One Direction or afterwards, if they want to do this for another five or ten years, they can do it. They’ve gone past this three, four year mark and they’ve got better.”

“When I saw them in California, they looked like a band that had been around for ten years. I mean, really, really got it together, so the future is in their hands not my hands.”

Looks like we have a lot more 1D to look forward to yet – yay!
