Louis Tomlinson is still rather of an enigma. That’s about to alter– we’re just two weeks away from the release of Tomlinson’s debut LP, Walls, and on Friday (January 17), he gave us a taste of what’s to come by launching the emotional title track.
On “Walls,” Tomlinson acknowledges the battles he’s confronted with introspective, heartbreaking observations, like, “Absolutely nothing wakes you up like getting up alone” and “Nothing makes you injure like harming who you love.” Simply when you think it’s all doom and gloom for Tommo, he cracks the unhappiness open and lets a little light in by exposing that the tough times have made him a stronger man.
” These high walls, they lost/ Now I stand taller than them all,” he belts on the uplifting chorus. “These high walls, never broke my soul/ And I, I see them all come falling down for you.” Upping the emotional ante is the addition of a live orchestra, which just takes this ballad to gorgeous heights.
Walls arrives on January 31 and consists of the formerly released songs “Eliminate My Mind,” “Don’t Let It Break Your Heart,” and “We Made It.” Each of those tracks has shown us a fresh side of the solo star, and his new album ought to assist break down those, uh, walls a lot more. Till then, have a look at Tomlinson’s most current track above.
