Louis Tomlinson Deemed One Direction’s Music ‘Less Personal’ and ‘Vague’



The former member of One Direction, Louis Tomlinson has admitted that he felt a lot more pride at his own music because he believed it stemmed from a ‘real place’. According to the 27-year-old popstar, being part of a band like One Direction, the kind of brand they were and where they came from meant that it wasn’t real at all, not even in the music industry. He said that the aim was to get the biggest choruses possible, as many No1s as you could and the biggest deals.

The point was that everything had to be massive, which meant that it couldn’t be straightforward. He continued to say that there was only a small element of reality, but the songs had to be relatively vague in order to suit four or five personalities. Thus, this automatically meant that the music would be less personal. The ‘Kill My Mind’ hit-maker said that he wanted to make his songs very relatable and this was of the utmost importance to him.

His debut album is set to release on January 30th, 2020 and is titled ‘Walls’. He said that once he was done making his album, he sat down and listened to it. The singer said that he felt extremely proud because he was aware of how many or little changes he had made throughout the way. He said that he had chosen real and relatable lyrics for his songs. He said that lyrics meant a great deal to him because he wanted to use his words to help people feel.

The ‘History’ singer was partnered up with Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik and Harry Styles in One Direction. He recently admitted that boy band members had a level of ‘snobbery’. According to Louis, it is especially difficult to transition from being a member of a boy band to a credible rock-and-roll singer. He elaborated that they needed to just prove themselves as an artist and to do so, they had to be real and honest. He also said that not everyone would like the real thing and nothing could be done about it.
