Louis Tomlinson Reflects on Adapting From One Direction to a Solo Career

Louis Tomlinson is opening up about life after One Direction, his new song “Two of Us,” his snacking habits, and more!

Here’s what the singer had to share with Nova’s Smallzy’s Surgery:

On his new song “Two of Us,” dedicated to his late mother: “It was important for me to write this song because as a songwriter, it’s amazing to be able to write about the positive and the negative, and to get things off my chest really so I can move forward – and I always knew I needed to write this song. I did a session with a few guys who played in the verse and chorus, and I just fell in love with it straight away. I changed a bit of the chorus to make it more personal, and I just fell in love with it.”

“I’m lucky really, I have said in a couple of interviews, I didn’t think I was ready to write this song on my own yet because in my own head, I wanted to be two to three years more into my songwriting because it’s a lot of responsibility, but as soon as I heard the ID, it was great – and hopefully, I want to get my point across as well. I don’t want it to be sad, I want it to be hopeful.”

On adapting from One Direction to a solo career: “The change from being in the band was quite drastic to be honest. It’s been something that’s been super exciting but also the responsibility of it, I have said before, when we brainstorm an idea and spoke about it in the group, you know, even if I brought an idea to the table and if we all agreed at the end of it, we would agree on it as a collective, and now every decision is on my head, so I feel the pressure with that, definitely.”

On his grocery shopping and snack habits: “Every now and then I’ll do my own shopping, I like to keep the awareness of the price of milk! But I do do a little bit of online shopping for the food! [I eat] a lot of junk food – lots of fast food really – [but] it’s starting to build up, and I’m conscious I’ll have to do some exercise soon!”
