One Direction Preview Songs From New Album
The upbeat rock song "Temporary Fix" was co-written by Horan, British songwriter Wayne Hector and two members of production team TMS. The song was born when the co-writers asked the singer what was missing from their upcoming album.
He told the guys they didn't have a "rock song" and they used Kings of Leon's hit single "Sex on Fire" as the inspiration for their "dark" song about approaching a girl at a bar. Horan adds, "It's relatable, I guess. Everyone has a grungy night out every now and then."
The seconds song previewed is "Walking in the Wind," which Harry Styles explains was inspired by Paul Simon's 1986 album Graceland. He said, "I like 'Walking in the Wind' because I'm a big Paul Simon fan and I think the inspiration behind it was Graceland, in which the verse was so conversational, informal and it's like spoken word."
