Liam Payne has reportedly registered a new song.

The former One Direction star has been working hard in the studio on his solo music and appears to have chosen the name of one of his songs, 'Myself'.

A screenshot of the registration with international music rights organisation BMI shows Liam is working with Grammy nominated songwriters Emily Warren, Nick Monson and Scott Harris.

It comes after it was recently revealed that the 23-year-old singer has songs ready for his solo album.

Speaking earlier this month, fellow label mate Calum Scott told BANG Showbiz: ''I was in the studio with Liam the other day. I heard a few of his songs. They are sounding amazing. I'd love to do something with him.''

Meanwhile, Simon Cowell previously admitted he was a ''bit annoyed'' at Liam - who is expecting a baby with Cheryl Fernandez-Versini - for signing with rival record label Capitol to release his solo music rather than choosing to stay with Sony.

He said: ''It is a bit annoying if I am honest with you - mainly because it is a another label who has now got your artist who you worked with for so many years. But that is the music business, unfortunately. I don't think anyone else from the band will do that.

''We had spoken a lot - him and I - about what he wanted to do next. But I guess he read about Harry's deal and thought we weren't interested. My impression was that he wasn't in any hurry to make a record because he discussed this last year. He was more into songwriting.

''I was teasing him saying, 'If you come up with a great song Liam make sure it is for you and don't give it away. When you're ready I am ready.' So I was a bit surprised. Of course there is a part of you that goes, 'Maybe we should have had the conversation.' That maybe is my fault but it has happened now.''
