Louis Tomlinson talks about One Direction's debut album Up All Night: It was s**t
One Direction member Louis Tomlinson is getting candid about his low opinion of the band's first record.
Louis Tomlinson is getting a little too honest. In a recent chat with Smallzy on the Surgery podcast, the singer opened up about his candid opinions on One Direction's first album Up All Night and he apparently was not a fan. Tomlinson shared that as a former member, their debut record was not their best.
During the interview, the 30-year-old singer reflected on his past music with One Direction as he shared, "Twelve years ago today the band got formed, but the first album was s–t any way." The boy group first debuted with their album in 2011 and although Tomlinson was not a huge fan of the record, it went on to sell 4.5 million copies worldwide, a clear testament to the band's overwhelming popularity. On the album were some of 1D's biggest hits yet like What Makes You Beautiful and One Thing. Following their first, the group went on to release four more albums, ending with Made in the A.M. in 2015.
Meanwhile, Louis also talked about finding his footing in the industry alone after the band went on a hiatus indefinitely. In 2020, Louis came out with his first solo album Walls. In the sit-down, Tomlinson revealed how there's still a lot of pressure on him after going solo with his work as he revealed, "There’s still pressure obviously for me to deliver a good record . . . and me trying to find my feet coming out of a band as big as One Direction."
