Earlier this week, the boys from One Direction turned to their loyal Directioners to find out what they want to hear on the upcoming album number 5 with this Tweet:

This will be their first album recorded post-Zayn Malik, so you could say this is a bittersweet moment for fans. The good news is that they are in the studio recording and dedicating themselves to their music, and asking what we want to hear! We are so excited!

There is no word yet on an official release date, but we’ve heard that a Christmas 2015 release is very possible. That would be the best Christmas present ever!

Since the question is out there, we want to know – what are YOU expecting from this next album? Are you sad that Zayn won’t be a part of it? How do you think it will sound? Let us know in the comments below!
