One Direction may be being micro managed but the super successful boys are now starting to bite back as Niall Horan has warned fans (and no doubt record bosses) the band are going to have control.
The buff blonde told MTV News: ""We've got to make a decision for a single soon, because we have to get a single out towards September...
"We want to have the most control that we possibly can of everything that we do."
Girlie 'yey'! More music and hopefully a hot video from the One Direction fivesome.
Sitting pretty in the driving seat of their next single will be Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Zayn Malik.
The Irish lush also teased as to what sort of sounds we can expect later this year:
"When we came back from Australia, we had a couple of weeks off and then we went straight into the studio to get cracking on the next album.
"We wrote an absolutely cracking song that we're all kind of very excited about."
There the teasing stopped though, and we'll just have to be happy with knowing it'll be 'cracking'.
Another (near) certainty is that it'll be a sellout hit!
When the boys finish their US tour, they won't be on holiday showing off their beach bods. Instead they're spending July and August working on their second album.
Wow the One Direction lads work hard!
