Liam Payne has shot his comeback music video in Ireland.

The 30-year-old singer touched down in Ireland last month and filmed his latest clip, but the tune's release has been delayed until next year after he was hospitalised in Italy in September when he was struck down with agonising kidney pain while on holiday in Lake Como with girlfriend Kate Cassidy.

A source told The Sun newspaper's Bizarre column: "Liam flew to Ireland in October to film the video, but while fans saw him out and about he managed to keep the shoot under wraps.

"Initially the release was for the end of 2023 but with Liam being admitted to hospital in September the timeline has been pushed back."

Liam is now planning to drop his new single "in the first few months of 2024".

The source added: "He's now doing great and the plan is to drop the comeback single in the first few months of 2024. After a lot of searching he's finally found his sound."

Liam's mum, Karen Payne, previously told how she was concerned about her son amid his kidney issues in Italy.

She told MailOnline: "We are all worried sick about it, but we just have to get on.

"It’s horrible - him being all the way over there.

“It’s such a horrible situation and we just hope he’s in the best place possible.

"He’s in Milan and it sounds like he’ll be there for a week. I feel helpless."

But days later, Liam’s girlfriend Kate confirmed the singer had been released from hospital and was doing well.

She told her TikTok followers: "He is doing so much better. He is out of the hospital and he is in good hands."

Weeks before his Italian hospitalisation, Liam had axed a number of shows in South America after he revealed he'd been treated for a serious kidney infection.
