Saying that he thinks it’s “easier” to be a solo artist when compared to his days as part of One Direction, musician Louis Tomlinson has spoken out about what we should expect from his new music when his first collection of material is released.

Speaking to Jim Hill on 4Music’s Trending Live, the musician teased of his debut solo record: “It’s for me important across my lyrics [to be] very matter of fact, very honest, vulnerable, ‘cause actually I don’t think there’s enough of that in pop. Everybody writes about these fairy tale scenarios when in reality, I think life’s pretty interesting.”

Now finding himself “in control of my destiny completely”, he feels that there is pressure as a solo artist, but is enjoying the ride and the chance to “be open”.

Fans got a real slice of what to expect from his upcoming releases when he dropped his BeBe Rexha collaboration ‘Back To You’, of which he said: “The track went another place when we got BeBe on the single because it definitely led to a collaboration, and the emotion is really driven between the two of us. It really was a perfect match.”

Whether he’ll be collaborating with any other stars on his debut album remains to be seen, but one thing’s for sure; the catchy tracks he’s released so far has laid out some great foundations, meaning there’s a high level of expectation. Let’s hope he can live up to it.
