Liam Payne has revealed that he is making significant changes to his solo album following his break-up with Cheryl.

The One Direction singer announced that he will release new music next week but is currently in the studio making some adjustments to his debut album.

"As you may know, the last few months have seen some big changes for me…, " he said on Twitter. "I looked at some of the songs on my album which were done a while ago and they felt from another age.

"I’m determined for my debut album to truly represent me.

"I’m now back in the studio working hard to finalise the final few new songs on the record - I’m genuinely excited about the music I’m writing and recording and I can’t wait for it to be ready for you all.

"In the meantime, this EP is a collection of songs that I’m really proud of and want you all to hear… tell me what you think. As always, thanks for your support - it means the world to me."

First Time will be released on August 24.
