Simon Cowell asked Kelly Clarkson to write a track for One Direction, and she was happy to do so! She had written a song for herself, but since it didn’t fit with the feel of her album she handed it over and the guys recorded it! Here’s what Kelly told PressParty:
When Simon Cowell put me forward to write for One Direction I said: ‘Let me hear them first.’ Simon has been really supportive since I won ‘American Idol.’ ‘Tell Me a Lie’ is the cut I’ve got on 1D’s album, as I like the story of them, how they came together as a group. While I wrote the song for me, it didn’t fit in the current album, as I never want an album to sound like one thought.
