When 1D announced their break, we were all super upset about it. No one knew how to cope, we didn't know if they'd ever get back together... it was all just really crazy. But Niall has said something really positive about the hiatus, and it seriously made us happy!
While on The Graham Norton Show, Niall revealed that as soon as the break was public, he went backpacking with his cousins. The best part? He did it on a budget!
Niall said, “I wanted to do it properly so we did it on a budget. All of my friends got to do it when I was traveling the world in a different way, so I thought it’s only fair that I get to do it, too.”
During these travels is what really inspired to write some songs, which is how we ended up with the blessing, Niall's first single, "This Town."
“When I got back from Asia I just started doing acoustic stuff – the stuff I grew up on – and thought, maybe I should release them. They’re actually not that bad,” Niall revealed.
The interview then switched to One Direction, and if a reunion is actually possible. Niall simply said, “we’re kind of all doing our own bits and pieces. We can’t really put a date on it but it’s not going to be fifty years away. It’s in the foreseeable.”
So, we may not be getting them back in the next year, but at least it's possible!
Niall also performed "This Town" on the show, check it out below!
