Jackie Jackson reveals to have written some songs for the British-Irish pop boyband to record.

The eldest of the Jackson brothers, Jackie Jackson, revealed in a recent interview that he had written some songs for , , , and , collectively known as British-Irish pop boyband . Jackie and his other Jackson 5 brothers, (sans most famous sibling, the late ) Tito Jackson, Marlon Jackson, and , were performing in the U.K. this week and are set to reunite for a tour.

"I got some songs for them to record too so we'll be in touch real soon," said Jackie when asked to comment on the current crop of boybands. "[One Direction] remind me of ourselves so much when we were younger."

Judging from their cover of Michael's hit "Man in the Mirror", it is safe to assume that 1D will do justice to the Jackson vibe. A cross-generational collaboration between the biggest boyband of this generation and the surviving members of one of the biggest pop acts of the 70s will surely be exciting.

The Jacksons are currently busy putting together a new album where another superstar sibling is set to be featured. "The rest of the family are involved, too," Jackie disclosed about the ongoing new project. "There will be some collaborations. Janet will be on the record, too, and our youngest brother, Randy, will return in the future as well."
