Liam Payne Says He's Free from One Direction on New Song

Liam Payne steps out of the BBC radio studios after making an appearance on Friday morning (May 19) in London, England.

The 23-year-old singer just dropped his first solo song “Strip That Down” and he mentions in the lyrics that he is “free” from One Direction.

“You know, I used to be in 1D (now I’m out, free),” Liam sings on the track.

During an interview with The Elvis Duran Show, Liam explained the lyric.

“That’s been the best part of it for me just getting to go out and explore. That’s when I said the line in the song, ‘1D now I’m out free,’ just means free to musically go about. I’ve always been into writing,” Liam said. “I wrote a lot of stuff for us 1D boys and I did writing for some artists as well. It’s been nice now that we can all go out on our own musical journeys and enjoy ourselves so it’s been a blast, it’s been a lot of fun!”

Liam Payne Says He's Not a Fan of Harry Styles' Solo Music (Video)

While Harry Styles‘ new music has been praised by both famous and non-famous fans, Liam Payne is not part of the club.

Liam told Music Choice that while he thinks Niall Horan‘s “Slow Hands” is “great” and “cool,” he said about Harry‘s track, “I’ll be honest with you, it’s not my sort of music. It’s not something I’d listen to, but I think he did a great job of doing what he wanted to do. That’s the way I’d put it best, I think.”

“I think the funny thing is, [Harry] would say the same thing about me because he doesn’t really listen to hip-hop music, whereas it’s like my song’s more [Tyga's] ‘Rack City’ and his song is more of a different era to something I’d listen to, I guess,” Liam added.

Liam Payne & Cheryl Cole Had 'Internal Battle' Over Bear's Name

Liam Payne admits he didn’t love the idea of naming his son Bear at first.

The 23-year-old former One Direction said that it was girlfriend Cheryl Cole‘s choice and he eventually got on board with it.

“It was an internal battle,” Liam told Total Access radio (via E! News). “I wanted a more traditional name and she wanted a name that was more unusual. The reason she chose Bear was because Bear is a name that when you leave a room, you won’t forget. And I like that.”

He added, “You know what? Now he is Bear. When I look at him, he’s just Bear. At first I wasn’t really having it. I was like, ‘I’m not really sure. I don’t really understand.’ Now I look at him and he’s Bear. You become your name as you get older anyway.”

Liam also revealed that Bear‘s middle name is Grey!
