Liam Payne is bringing his musical talents back to the United States!
The One Direction crooner had already signed a deal with the United Kingdom's Capitol Records over the summer, and now he's just scored another big one with Republic Records in the U.S. "Amazing to have signed to @RepublicRecords I am celebrating as I tweet thank you so much for accepting me to your roster of amazing artists," Payne wrote.
"Being a member of the most successful group of the last decade, Liam has a tremendous opportunity to make an even greater impact on pop culture," Lipman said. "We're honored by Liam's decision to join Republic Records, and have extremely high expectations for his solo career."
Payne's manager, Simon Oliveira, reiterated that sentiment, saying, "I am more than confident we have assembled the best possible team alongside Capitol's UK label to launch and shepherd Liam's solo career."
