One Direction is planning on recording the next album while enjoying a holiday in Florida.

The band - which consists of Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne - are joining forces with their old support group to shake up their image and will be heading to America to do so.

The boys are writing with soft-rockers Boyce Avenue for their second LP and plan on hanging out on the beach as they make the record at a studio on the East Coast.

Boyce Avenue's Daniel Manzano claimed that they will invite The X Factor 2010 contestants to their base soon.

The 'Broken Angel' singer said: ''We're meeting up to see what they think of some ideas we've got for them.

''We've got a studio right by the beach, so it's a cool place for bands to come and write with us.''

However the 31-year-old musician admitted that One Direction may not get the best pick of their tracks.

Daniel and his band members 28-year-old Fabian and 25-year-old Alejandro admitted they sometimes keep their best ideas.

Alejandro told the Daily Star newspaper: ''We were meant to write for a singer we won't name.

''We fell in love with the song ideas ourselves and ended up putting them on our album.''
