Louis Tomlinson is already working on his second solo album, one-year after putting out his debut, ‘Walls’. (We Stan a hardworking King!)

The One Direction star, who had to postpone his world tour due to the coronavirus pandemic, said the break in his schedule has given him more time to ‘really get into what I want to say’.

And he's promised his new music is going to be special.

Promising he'll have something out this year but that it may not be the album, Louis responded to a fan who asked about his next project: "No concrete plans because I don't need that pressure while I'm writing. I'm sure I will have something out this year but unlikely that will be the album. Who knows though!"

However, he did add: "I've been doing a lot of thinking about my next record. It's going to be special!"

What has Louis Tomlinson said about new music?

Opening up in an interview with the Telegraph last year, Louis said: “I’m very, very excited. I had basically penciled down a plan before corona took over our lives.

“And now it's kind of given me a little bit of time to really get into what I want to say and what I want things to sound like.”

He said fans can expect his second record to sound more along the lines of ‘Kill My Mind,’ adding: “There’s a certain energy in that song, in its delivery, in its attitude, that I want to recreate.

“People are struggling at the moment, so I want to create a raucous, exciting atmosphere in my live show, not a somber, thoughtful one.” 

Opening up about who has inspired his new record, he said he’s spent a lot of time in lockdown listening to the Red Hot Chilli Peppers.

He said: “I grew up on their album 'By the Way'. And during lockdown I've been knee deep in their stuff.

“I’ve watched every documentary, every video. And I find their lead guitarist John Frusciante just fascinating.”
