One Direction's Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson register a song together

The One Direction duo are registered as composers and authors on a new track called Something That Scares Me About Love.

It's not clear who the song has been written for.

The most likely suggestion is that it will appear on Liam's upcoming solo album.
