A source close to the band told The Sun newspaper that Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson have decided to use a pop-up recording venue while conducting their "Where We Are Tour" in 2014.
"One Direction will travel with their own studio in tow when they play stadium dates," the insider said. "It's going to cost a few quid but then, considering the amount of cash they're making on the tour, they can afford it."
The idea to record on tour came about as the singers were eager to begin working on their upcoming record, but didn't want to interrupt their concert schedule.
"The boys are all writing more and more themselves these days so it will allow them to develop as songwriters," the source said. "Because of the shows across the globe they'll have no time out to record so this is the best way to get the fourth album done."
One Direction's third studio album "Midnight Memories" is due out on November 25. The former "X Factor" contestants recently signed a £10 million deal with Simon Cowell's company Syco until 2016.
"It was all worked out as part of the deal they did with Simon Cowell and Syco records earlier this month," the source said of their recording plan.
