It’s happening, people! After years of anticipation, fans are just weeks away from getting their hands on Louis Tomlinson‘s debut solo album. Yep, the former One Direction member’s first LP — Walls — will hit stands on January 31, 2019, and fans have patiently been counting down the days until it drops.
Well guys, prepare to get even more excited because on Saturday, January 11, the Back to You” crooner finally shared the track list for the upcoming album! Walls will have twelve songs in total, including his already released hits “Don’t Let It Break Your Heart,” “We Made It,” “Two of Us” and “Kill My Mind.”
Some new tracks include “Fearless,” “Habit,” “Perfect Now” and more. As fans know, Louis first announced the details of his upcoming LP back in October. He even shared the album cover, which shows the 28-year-old staring seriously into the camera against a dark gray background.
“Someone recently said something very interesting about how so many people focus on the ‘end game’ without enjoying the doing,” he wrote on Twitter. “I’ve been thinking a lot more about what success means to me. I feel like I’ve been mistranslating it for the last three years. Everything I’ve ever known, in my career, is straight down the middle pop. My expectations and aspirations are all shaped around my experiences, as much as I try and stay realistic I couldn’t help but crave a ‘hit’ single. It’s because of this that I’ve spent so long on this album, trying to fit into top 40 radio when in fact I should start with what I love and work from there instead of trying to write to a more specific formula.”

“Over the last few weeks I’ve put a lot of things [into] perspective and in fact what I should be doing is forgetting about perception and to a certain degree worry less about being defined on commercial success,” he continued. “I’m not here to compete with the likes of Drake and Ariana Grande. I’m here to make music I love and make my fans proud to say they’re a fan. Turning a page today.”
As fans know, Louis released his first solo single, “Just Hold On” with Steve Aoki in December 2016. Since then, he’s dropped a bunch of tunes over the years, including “Two of Us” — the heartbreaking song that was written about his mom’s death. Fans can preorder Walls here.
Ugh, can it be January 31 already?!
