“Have you already thought about making a documentary?” one fan asked him. He replied, “Already on it love.”
But wait, when will the documentary come out, you ask? What exactly will it be about and what can we expect it to show? Not to worry, you guys, because we broke it all down for you. Here’s everything you need to know about Tomlinson’s upcoming documentary.
What Do We Know So Far About Louis Tomlinson’s Documentary?
So unfortunately, the “Walls” crooner hasn’t shared any other details about it, but some fans are convinced that they’ve uncovered the name of the upcoming doc! Get this — just a few days before he made the announcement, Tomlinson celebrated the 11-year anniversary since he first auditioned for The X Factor. As fans know, after he tried out for the singing competition show, he was put into the band by Simon Cowell (alongside Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Zayn Malik).
“11 years since my first audition! I had no idea on that day just how much would have changed between then and now. Thank you to everyone who’s been there for me along the way! We’re only just getting started!” he wrote on Twitter in honor of the big day.
But it was his next message that caught everyone’s attention.
“Faith in the future,” Tomlinson added. And many people think that may be the name of the documentary!
What Else Has Louis Tomlinson Been Up To Lately?
This isn’t the only thing that the musician has up his sleeves! Yep, earlier this month, he revealed that he was starting his own management company, and everyone was pretty excited about it. For those who don’t know, he previously attempted to launch his own record label, but that didn’t work out.
“I always dreamed of having my own label, having an imprint never really worked for me because I still had to have someone else’s blessing to sign people. People I believed in massively but unfortunately didn’t fit the traditional pop role hence never doing the deals,” he explained via Twitter. “So I’ve decided to put it out there in the world today. I’m going to start my own music management company to help develop new artists. Watch this space.”
He later verified, “I just wanted to take the first step of actualizing the idea but at this stage that’s all this is. An idea! Sometimes action is needed first to encourage the motivation and belief.”
And when someone asked if this would effect his upcoming music, he replied, “No.”
And that’s not all! Tomlinson also told fans that he’s considering making a visual album!
“Seen a few that a really like. Potentially,” he replied when a fan asked if he was open to making one. So exciting!
But despite having “lots of stuff” in the works at the moment, Tomlinson promised that music is still the most important thing to him.
“Lots of stuff in early stages. Music obviously remains my number one priority,” he tweeted.
He also tweeted that he has new merch coming soon, so keep your eyes peeled for that. Plus, the 29-year-old is gearing up to go on tour — as soon as it’s safe, of course. He was supposed to head out on his debut solo tour last year, but when the pandemic hit he was unfortunately forced to postpone it. His European leg is now set to kick off on June 6, 2021, but it’s unclear whether or not those shows will go on as planned or get postponed again. As for the American leg, the new dates for those concerts have not been announced just yet. But Tomlinson is very excited to hit the stage again.
“Every day is a day closer to the first show back!” he tweeted recently.
And when someone asked him what he was most excited about, he responded, “The next time I play a live show. Going to be an incredible atmosphere.”
What Do We Know About His Upcoming Second Album?
Back in May 2020, Tomlinson first announced that he was working on his second studio album.
“I’m doing good. Tried to be more creative these last few weeks,” he wrote to a fan at the time.
The singer added that he had “lots of ideas” but that he didn’t expect to be “writing so soon” after his first album dropped. As fans know, his debut LP — Walls — came out in January 2020, and it was full of bops.
Then, in October 2020, he gave us a much-needed update!
“Wrote four songs in four days. It’s cooking,” Tomlinson shared. And when a fan asked what exactly was “cooking,” he explained, “Banger after banger.”
And just this week, he revealed that he was working on another new song!
“Got a decent chorus idea down,” he said, when asked what he was up to. This is seriously so exciting!
But when will his new tunes come out? Well, when a fan asked the star when we could expect the music to drop, he said it will probably come out sometime this year.
“Assuming ’21 [but] who knows,” he said.
What Will His New Album Sound Like?
While chatting with Telegraph in a recent interview, the 1D heartthrob explained that the pandemic has given him time to “really get into what I want to say” on his new album.
“I’m very, very excited. I had basically penciled down a plan before corona took over our lives,” he explained. “And now it’s kind of given me a little bit of time to really get into what I want to say and what I want things to sound like.”
When asked about the sound, Tomlinson said that fans can expect it to be a lot like his hit song “Kill My Mind.”
“There’s a certain energy in that song, in its delivery, in its attitude, that I want to recreate,” he continued. “People are struggling at the moment, so I want to create a raucous, exciting atmosphere in my live show, not a somber, thoughtful one.”
According to the pop star, he’s been listening to the Red Hot Chilli Peppers a lot over the last few months, and they will have a big influence on LT2.
“I grew up on their album ‘By the Way’. And during lockdown I’ve been knee deep in their stuff,” he explained to Telegraph. “I’ve watched every documentary, every video. And I find their lead guitarist John Frusciante just fascinating.”
But don’t expect him to play any new instruments on the upcoming LP. He tweeted that “guitar was enough” for him when a fan asked if he learned any new instruments during quarantine.
Plus, he also wrote on Twitter that he’s going to talk about more social issues in his lyrics!
