Louis Tomlinson’s solo record is coming and he just debuted the first song from it.
Following his collaboration with Steve Aoki from last year, “Just Hold On”, Tomlinson released “Back To You” on Friday.
The song is the lead single from his untitled debut solo album, which is due later this year. Alongside Tomlinson, Bebe Rexha and Digital Farm Animals are featured on the track.
Tomlinson, 25, says that his music is going to be more focused on incorporating honest lyrics while still being pop music. He says he was inspired by the Arctic Monkeys for his record.
“Because I’m from up north, I grew up loving the likes of the Arctic Monkeys and Oasis. And the way they tell stories is such an effortless thing. It’s real, it’s honest and it’s to the point, you know?” he told BBC News.
“Now, any of the Arctic Monkeys would be devastated to hear me talking like this, but there is a way of incorporating that conversational honesty into pop,” he continues.
Tomlinson and Rexha unite for the music video and sport several memorable looks.
