Guys, not only has Liam Payne signed a solo record deal with Capitol Records UK, but he's also said some ridiculously cute stuff about One Direction and we don't quite know how hot to best comprehend all this information.

So basically - what with Harry Styles, Niall Horan and probably not Louis Tomlinson lbr all going down the solo route - Payno's announced the deal following the whole 'You' leak debacle earlier this year. Also it looks like there's some kind of official site, we just can't find it anywhere. OH NO WAIT, it's liampayneofficial.com.

Taking to Twitter, Liam said: "Happy to have signed to @CapitolUK. They have an amazing history of artists, I hope I can follow in their footsteps.

"One direction will always be my home and family but I'm very excited to see what this chapter brings."

Okay, so let's break this down:

1. Liam James Payne has signed a solo deal.

2. That pic's an old school vinyl record. Is he gonna ditch the urban thing and go all Motown and/or bring those 'Cry Me a River' audition vibes? HMM.

3. Said vinyl has 'LP-93' on it. '93 being the year he was born, obviously.

4. He's signed to Capitol UK. No idea if he's gonna be releasing in America and stuff yet.

5. ONE DIRECTION WILL ALWAYS BE HIS HOME. We're crying. End of story.

Liam's also released a statement through Capitol, saying: "I'm really happy to have signed to such a prestigious label as Capitol Records UK. Capitol Records has an amazing history stretching right back before even Frank Sinatra and I'm really looking forward to becoming part of their story. One Direction will always be my family; I'm now excited to show what I can do as a solo artist."

Frank bloody Sinatra.

In further news, Nick Raphael off of Capitol Records UK added: "Capitol Records UK are incredibly excited to be working with Liam. It's not often you get the chance to sign such a talented and ambitious 22 year old who has already conquered the world."

Thoughts on all this, then? Ooh, what sound d'ya think he'll go for? Give us a tweet over @sugarscape and don't forget to like us on Facebook while you're at it. TA.
