One Direction Taps Hotel Employee for Guest Vocal on New Album

One Direction is hard at work on their new album, but since they're on tour, they've been forced to do a lot of recording in hotel rooms...which is why they've been forced to ask the hotel staff for help if they happen to need a guest vocalist.

Speaking to the British paper The Sun , Harry Styles reveals that while recording the album, they found themselves in need of a female voice -- specifically, a female voice making a, uh, "bedroom noise."  "We needed, y'know, a groan on one of the songs," says Harry.  "So I asked a lady at the hotel to record [it].  She was nervous at first, but soon got into the swing of it."

But recording your album in a hotel room has some disadvantages, too -- sometimes, as Harry explains to The Sun , the hotel employees did more harm than good.

"We’d be recording the best vocal ever -- you’re thinking, ‘I’m really smashing this!’" laughs Harry. "And then there’d be a huge knock on the door and you’d get, ‘Room service!’ or ‘Housekeeping!’  We’d be, like, ‘Nooooo!’ and have to start again!"
