“It was my first moment of excitement making this record, and where it felt we were on to something which honours the live show,” Tomlinson said in a statement published by Just Jared. “I’ve always strived to be a very normal, humble person in this life, but there’s a line to that and a responsibility that comes from being in this position.
“I realized from doing those live shows what it means to my fans and how everything I do is bigger than me. It’s almost a coming of age for myself and putting opinions about myself to the back of my mind and thinking about what it potentially means for other people.”
