Liam Payne is inconsolable as he breaks down in floods of tears while drawing on painful emotions to record his long-awaited second album

Liam Payne is seen sobbing in a new behind-the-scenes clip which was filmed during the making of his new album.

The singer, 30, took to TikTok to post the video in the run up to the release of his new single Teardrops.

And former One Direction Liam showed how much emotion he’d hauled to the surface in a bid to make a heartfelt disc.

Of the pain he put himself through, he said: ‘There were definitely a lot of teardrops shed in making these records and for the first time you really get a picture of what it was like for me each day of making this record.

‘This album literally is that whole last year for me. How I was feeling on those days is each record. It was a snapshot of that day.’

He added: ‘So you can even help someone through a tough time, help somebody celebrate something. 

‘That’s really what I want to get across in this record and that’s the best part I guess about my job.’

It comes after Liam teased his emotional new music in a studio clip posted on Instagram last Tuesday.

The pop star who is now a solo artist shared a snippet from the ballad which he said was ‘born from many tears’.

On the track, he sings: ‘Teardrops are falling down your face again, cos I don’t know how to love you and I am broken too.’

Liam wrote in the caption: ‘A song born from many (tear emoji) some mine some not.’

It comes after last month Liam’s ex girlfriend Danielle Peazer announced she was expecting her first child with Dancing On Ice’s Sonny Jay.

Danielle and Liam dated on and off from 2010 after meeting on The X Factor but split in 2013 – three years before he got with Cheryl, 40, who’s the mother of his son, Bear, 6.

During an interview in October 2012, Liam admitted he was ‘devastated’ after separating from Danielle. Liam is now in a relationship with US model Kate Cassidy, who he’s been with since October 2022.

In a joint post Sonny and Danielle shared a sweet video announcing their news.

The caption read: ‘We’re having a baby! It’s a secret we’ve been keeping for a while, enjoying this little bubble of excitement and preparing for our biggest adventure so far. But now we feel ready to share this journey with you, including the highs (and inevitable tantrums) it will bring.

‘Arriving Spring 2024 ✨ We can’t post this without acknowledging those who may be struggling with fertility or pregnancy issues and are sending love to anyone affected.’
