Niall Horan, who was a part of a conversation about the songs on the album, explained that one song was entirely written for fans.

He stated that “We all decided to record history because it was one of our favorite songs… It has that’sitting at the dock of the Bay’ feeling. Campire-y. Four chords are simple and easy to learn.

It’s a conversation about the past between us and our fans.

“All of the time that we spent on road [with] crew, people who have been with me since day one.

Louis Tomlinson contributed his opinion on the single.

He also spoke out about Zayn Malik’s recent departure, which he announced six months before the release of the album.

Louis stated: “History has so many to it and so many meanings and it’s just the perfect song.
