Liam Payne signed to Capitol Records in the UK in July.

The 23-year-old One Direction singer was thrilled to join the roster of artists - which includes Sir Paul McCartney and Sam Smith to name a few - but has set his sights on breaking into the US as a solo artist.

However, Liam said that the boy band - also comprised of Harry Styles, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson - will always be 'family'.
