One Direction Percussionist Josh Devine Reveals Solo Single, "Never Fade"

It is no secret that One Direction are taking a break, but not entirely! Today, percussionist Josh Devine has revealed his own project. It's a brand new single called "Never Fade," an ode to a friend who passed away. He pays tribute on the emotional track with the help of songwriter/producer and previous collaborator Ollie Green.

"The writing process for 'Never Fade' for me was heavily influenced by the death of my close friend," Devine told Billboard. "Ollie had the idea to write a song about missing someone, and I have wanted to write a song about the passing of my friend for a while, it was just the perfect time. It wrote itself, the lyrics just came so naturally to us, it was heartfelt and we both knew exactly what direction it was going from the start."

Listen below. Devine is set to release a solo EP in the near future, but ensures he's not done with One Direction.
