Will he launch the album on the back of this is my question.
With 5 singles in, the album should get a release.

Is there really any interest in a Louis album though... There's barely any interest in singles.

In any case, would be a shame for him to continue flopping; hopefully he can get into the charts with this one before some of the other 1D members return with new music.

X factor performance is likely for this which might help him chart.

Louis Tomlinson delivers '90s indie-pop nostalgia on new single Kill My Mind: First listen preview
Louis Tomlinson dramatically switches up his sound on his new single Kill My Mind.

QUOTE
ICYMI, Louis Tomlinson returns this week with his new single. It's called Kill My Mind and if you've been keeping an eye on his Twitter you'll notice he's rather excited about this one.

Louis has even made a playlist of songs that have influenced the track (see below). The list includes songs by Oasis, The Killers, The La's, James and Arctic Monkeys. Fans of his early pop-dance singles Just Hold On and Back To You may raise an eyebrow, but the playlist is pretty bang on in terms of direction.

Louis may have pushed restart on his music career, but Kill My Mind sounds like the sort of song that - forgetting trends, playlisting, positioning - could have been his debut single.

Sound-wise, there's something very turn-of-the-noughties-indie-pop about Kill My Mind. There's a noticeable Northern twang to his voice. The chorus is one of those guitars-and-drums breeze blasters in the vein of Feeder's Just The Way I'm Feeling or, for a modern reference, Sam Fender's Hypersonic Missiles.

Louis co-wrote Kill My Mind with Jamie Hartman, who also prodcued the track. Jamie's credits include co-writes on Rag'n'Bone Man's Human and Lewis Capaldi's Hold Me While You Wait, which also offers up a good indication of what to expect.

Most notably, on Kill My Mind Louis sounds at his most confident and comfortable yet. The song is out on September 5.

"90s indie pop" does NOT sound promising but I'm not going to judge until I hear it...

It sounded really promising but ultimately it's a bit mediocre. Nice enough chorus but the whole thing sounds quite dated. Can't see it troubling the Top 40.

I quite like it but it's definitely his weakest track so far. It just doesn't quite pop off like I feel like it's supposed to?

Louis seems to be very confused as a solo artist? Every song has been wildly different to the last! It gives the impression that he's really struggling to find his identity. I assume that this new song is the closest to being representative of the type of music Louis actually likes, so maybe he'll settle with this vibe.

I don't particularly like it, hmm. The melody of the chorus is ok. The thing is, 90s indiepop has never really been my cup of tea and this is his take on that genre. Vocally he seems to be doing a Liam Gallagher impression, instead of just being himself, which is a little off putting to me. The only other positive thing I can say is that it's a better song than Miss You, but that's not saying much... :')

Just Hold On and Back to You were more interesting directions and more in line with my tastes. The former was obviously Steve Aoki's song so was probably never meant to represent a direction Louis would go in, but it's a pity he didn't explore Back to You's laid-back pop sound more (wow at these songs being 2-3 years ago already).

I really like Kill My Mind - but agreed in terms of output he seems a little all over the place; although possibly due to everything that's happened to him over the last couple of years?

Louis was on the Radio 1 Indie Show house party last night to promote the song! His choices to be played were:

The Libertines - Don't Look Back Into the Sun
Jamie T - If You Got The Money
Yungblud - 21st Century Liability
Reverend and the Makers - Heavyweight Champion Of The World
The Chemical Brothers - Block Robin Beats
Bombay Bicycle Club - Always Like This
The Vines - Get Free

He has fantastic taste!

Couple of interesting notes from the Indie Show on Thursday

-He said for the last couple of years he's been making music he thought he should make, rather than what he wanted to make.
-There will be '2 or 3' more singles before the album.

I donít want to sound rude as I know he does have a few fans; but surely him & the label can see there is just no interest in his music. The same can be said for Liam also.
