Ryan Tedder is confirming rumors that he’s teamed up with One Direction. In an interview with “The Guardian,” the OneRepublic frontman admits that he did collaborate with the British boy band but can’t yet reveal when and how what they made will reach fans.
Tedder played it coy after first, talking about the time he spent with the five youngsters. Ryan says he was “impressed” and “extremely happy” to find that the boys were “so normal.”
He described the group as being “at the stage of nuclear explosion in their career,” and joked that he was “looking for syringes” and wondering how they were “not more messed up right now.”
