Despite being in one of the hottest bromances in the world of pop, One Direction confirm that their pal Justin Bieber won't be featured on their November album release, [article id="1692825"]Take Me Home[/article].
Harry Styles broke the bad news to the U.K.'s The Sun, sharing, "There is no Justin Bieber on the album."
The 1D guys and Bieber first sparked [article id="1682522"]rumors of a duet[/article] earlier this year when they tweeted about hanging out in the studio together. But 1D [article id="1682685"]denied it[/article] to MTV News, with Liam Payne sharing, "We actually went down to the studio to listen to some of Justin Bieber's tracks. He invited us down and we had a good listen, but there's no real collaboration or anything."
Even though Bieber won't be on it, the guys have been working with lots of other A-listers on Take Me Home, including British [article id="1690503"]singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran[/article], who also worked with the guys on their debut album, Up All Night.
"I wrote the three tracks that I gave [them] ... when I was 17 and they were on my hard drive for a long time," Sheeran said. "And then I gave them one song for their last album, and they came back and said, 'Do you have any more?' and I said, 'Here's a whole load. Take your pick.' ... Seventeen-year-old Ed just wrote a lot of love songs, so expect to hear a lot of love songs on their album, I guess."
Ahead of the [article id="1692939"]November 13 album release[/article], the guys will officially drop their single, [article id="1692383"]"Live While We're Young,"[/article] on October 1. The guys are currently riding high off their [article id="1693383"]three wins at the VMAs[/article] last week, as well as their star-making debut performance on the show, when they delighted fans with their single, "One Thing."
