*Niall Horan Voice*: “Today was a busy week for us.”
Thursday (October 24) was a big day for Louis Tomlinson and his fans.
Just a day after announcing his debut album,Walls, The “Kill My Mind” singer casually dropped the announcement of his first solo tour and gifted fans with a new song called “We Made It” along with its video.
Tomlinson had been teasing “We Made It” all week before dropping the song as well as the music video for it. While the track is definitely a love song, Tomlinson dedicated it to his fans. “Between us, it has taken a lot to get here. I’ve had to work really hard, had to learn about so much about myself,” he said in a statement. “I feel as though only when I get out to tour, to sing these songs directly to the fans, will I have cemented the start of my solo career.”
This nod to fans can probably be most evident in the first verse he sings: We were only kids, just tryna work it out/Wonder what they'd think if they could see us now, yeah. If his fans are anything it's dedicated and have stuck with him since 2012 following him through every up and down. And while it's taken him some time to get his debut album out, his legion of Louies are right there by his side watching him achieve everything he's set out to.
The incredible video is a continuation of the end if the “Kill My Mind” video following the couple overcoming their own obstacles while Tomlinson sings in front of arcade games and a setting sun.
Even more exciting, the former One Direction singer announced his very first solo tour. He'll be stopping in cities like New York, Detroit, Nashville, and Portland. See all the dates below. Tickets to the tour are available now!
