Multi-Platinum superstar Louis Tomlinson has announced his sophomore album, Faith In The Future, set for release on November 11 via BMG. Ahead of the album, he shared the first single, ‘Bigger Than Me’.
It’s the first new music from Tomlinson since the release of his million-selling debut solo album Walls in 2020, and the first album since signing with BMG in 2021.
Louis Tomlinson announced the album on social media: “After living with this album for a while I can’t wait for you all to hear it. Thank you for allowing me to make the music I want to make.”
‘Bigger Than Me’ was written by Louis Tomlinson, Rob Harvey, and Red Triangle, and produced by Mike Crossey (The 1975 and Wolf Alice).
"It was my first moment of excitement making this record, and where it felt we were on to something which honours the live show," said Louis.
He continued, "I've always strived to be a very normal, humble person in this life, but there's a line to that and a responsibility that comes from being in this position. I realised from doing those live shows what it means to my fans and how everything I do is bigger than me. It's almost a coming of age for myself and putting opinions about myself to the back of my mind and thinking about what it potentially means for other people."
Alongside Crossey, Louis collaborated on the upcoming album with celebrated names such as Rob Harvey, Dan Grech (The Killers, The Vaccines, Halsey), Nico Rebscher (Alice Merton), Joe Cross (Courteeners), and Hurts frontman Theo Hutchcraft.
Tomlinson’s million-selling smash debut solo album Walls hit the Top 4 in the UK and Top 10 in the USA, with Louis picking up the Best Song Award at the 2019 Teen Choice Awards for 'Two Of Us', and an iHeart Award for Best Solo Breakout. He also won an EMA Award for Best UK & Ireland Act in 2017, and Artist Of The Summer in Philly radio station 96.5 TDY's annual awards.
