Louis was the final member of One Direction to release a solo album. The record, titled Walls, came out last year just before the Covid lockdown hit the UK and did well for the singer, despite the fact he hadn’t released any new material for three years. Walls debuted at number one in Argentina, Portugal, Mexico and Scotland and within the top ten in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Poland and Spain. His success no doubt stemmed from the continuous support he receives from his fans.
In an interview about recording his album and appearing on the X Factor, Louis opened up about how the One Direction fans act.
The star spoke about how each of the 1D members had their own “devotees” and how he wanted to “prove to them that he has been worth backing all these years”.
The singer said: “I honestly think they’ll write books about One Direction fans.
“Because they are so fanatical. The intensity. It’s remarkable.”

Louis said: “I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about my next record. It’s going to be special!”
On a specific release date, Louis added: “No concrete plans because I don’t need that pressure while I’m writing.
“I’m sure I will have something out this year but unlikely that will be the album. Who knows though!”
Louis may already be back working with his fellow 1D pals on another album, however, following eyewitness sightings of Harry Styles and Niall Horan hanging out together again.
The pair were seen together earlier this month, adding fuel to the reunion fire.
According to leading bookmaker Coral One Direction have 1/2 odds on getting back together this year after being on hiatus for six years.
These odds do not include Zayn Malik, however, who has meagre odds of 5/4 on returning with the other four members of the band.
