Music mogul Simon Cowell, who put the group together on The X Factor UK and owns the record label Syco, previously gave his seal of approval to the record. He feels they have grown up a lot since finding fame in 2010.

"They had a lot more to do with the - the writing, the choosing of the songs - so they've matured as a band," he explained. "I think everyone's going to like it... it's a great album."

It isn't just the boys' music which is going well.

Harry's love life appears to be blossoming after apparently enjoying several secret dates with model Daisy Lowe.

The pair were introduced by mutual friends and reportedly hit it off instantly.

"When Harry met Daisy there was a real spark. When they see each other they make sure it's in private at night or with a group of friends," a source told British newspaper The Sun.

These rumours come after Harry was spotted with reality star Kendall Jenner. However, the raven-haired beauty has insisted there is no romance between them.

"We're friends. He's cool, yeah, he's cool," she recently said, according to People.com. "You go out with one person, you're automatically dating them."
