Pharrell Williams 'To Work With One Direction'
Hitmaker 'in talks' to write a song for 1D's third album...
According to The Mirror, The N.E.R.D frontman - who collaborated on this year's megahits Daft Punk's Get Lucky and Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines - is in talks to pen a song for 1D's upcoming third studio album, Midnight Memories.
Speaking at last week's GQ Men of the Year Awards, Pharrell said: "We are definitely talking. From what I've heard of their new stuff I'm pleasantly surprised.
"Their new stuff is definitely a progression and an elevation. I will hopefully be getting involved as we are definitely in talks."
Williams had nothing but praise for the 1D boys, saying: "I don't think some people realise how hard those boys work. There is so much more that goes into One Direction than just the band."
He added: "They are a brand and are huge. They are incredibly hard-working. I'm sure it will excite our female fans if we're on a record together."
