Well...he didn't exactly say One Direction by name, but we're pretty sure it's them. Has to be, right?
When Welsh radio station 106.3 Bridge FM host Sam Vaughan asked Ed about whether the new music he's been tweeting about is for another album, the singer revealed: "No, actually, the track I did last night was for a certain boy band."
He added, "Well, I'm seeing their big boss tonight. I'm having dinner with him and playing some songs, so hopefully it works out."
When pressed for more details, Ed played it cheeky, explaining, "I couldn't possibly comment."
As if we needed another reason to be excited about new music from 1D.
UPDATE: In an exclusive interview with Sugarscape, Ed dished on the possibility of the 1D guys writing a song with him and it's just "too many cooks," according to him. But he would do something with the guys individually.
Ed explained about writing for 1D's upcoming album, saying, "I didn't get a phone call for album three, but I saw Simon Cowell at Britain's Got Talent and we've worked it out and next record, we'll see."
As for them having a group writing sesh, he said, "No. I don't know what I could do with five people in a room. Like, if it was one on one, if I wrote five different songs, one with each of them, then it would work, but I'm a control freak when it comes to writing songs and too many cooks doesn't work."
Ed added, "I'd want it to go in a certain direction - no pun intended - and like, everyone has an opinion and I wouldn't want it dragged all those different ways. So yes, I would work with each of them individually, but not five of them at once."
