What song did Kelly Clarkson write for One Direction?

The song is called Tell Me a Lie.

Kelly Clarkson provided her co-written track to the British boyband for their debut album Up All Night.

Tell Me a Lie was originally written for Clarkson's Stronger, but it just "didn't fit in."

Clarkson recalled just how she was approached to write a track for the chart-topping fivesome’s album Up All Night:

'When Simon Cowell put me forward to write for One Direction I said, ‘Let me hear them first’. Simon has been really supportive since I won American Idol.’
‘Tell Me A Lie is the cut I’ve got on 1D’s album as I like the story of them, how they came together as a group. While I wrote the song for me, it didn’t fit in the current album as I never want an album to sound like one thought.’
