One Direction will apparently record new music as they tour around the world.
The British boyband - comprising Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson - will travel with a mobile recording studio next year. It seems the group made the decision so they entertain fans while finishing off their fourth album.
"One Direction will travel with their own studio in tow when they play stadium dates. It's going to cost a few quid but then, considering the amount of cash they're making on the tour, they can afford it," a source told British newspaper The Sun.
"The boys are all writing more and more themselves these days so it will allow them to develop as songwriters. Because of the shows across the globe they'll have no time out to record so this is the best way to get the fourth album done."
One Direction will be travelling to South America in April next year as part of their Where We Are tour, before they carry on performing across Europe.
"It was all worked out as part of the deal they did with Simon Cowell and Syco records earlier this month," an insider added.
It was recently reported that One Direction had signed a new deal worth £10 million with music mogul Simon Cowell.
This will see the heartthrobs release another three albums under Simon's Syco record label by 2016.
Two of the albums will feature new material, while the third will be a greatest hits compilation.
One Direction's third album, Midnight Memories, is slated for release in late November.
It includes their recent hit single Best Song Ever.
