Since One Direction and Justin Bieber share the same album release date, of course they're going to be asked about it in every other interview. Seems the 1D guys have no worries over how their sales will be compared to the competition.

In a new interview with Coup de Main, Harry Styles and Niall Horan talked about the release date and any rumored beef with Justin.

Niall explained, "We just happen to be releasing our albums on the same day," noting that they've had albums released on the same day as other artists in the past, so this is nothing new.

Harry, ever the voice of reason, put it all into perspective: "I don't think anyone makes a record with competing with someone else in mind. I think then you don't make it for the right reasons. I think we made the record, we're very, very happy with it, very proud of it. And now we're putting it out."

He added: "It's not a win/lose thing. We hope our fans like it..." As for the competition, he says, that's "not ultimately what it's about."

We're not even sure how it's humanly possible, but our love for Harry just grew even more.

Justin took some heat recently when he had a little fun with 1D, replying with a bit of shade to Niall's tweet about the reaction to the band's new song, 'Perfect.' Turns it out it's all good, however, with Justin clearing up any feud rumors.
