One Direction continue to move in the direction of success and their newest album, Take me Home, is thought to be a level up from their previous album, Up All Night, which as their debut album reached number one on the US Billboard 200. Louis’ thoughts on the new album are that he really likes: “Back for You” as a track because “We did a lot of writing for that track and that was fun.” Louis is perceived as one of the more opinionated members of the group and he is the oldest member of One Direction. Here are a few questions answered from the archives of One Direction’s, Louis Tomlinson.

3. How are the fans round your girlfriend?
“I think that on the whole, for both mine and Liam’s girlfriend the fans are very, very supportive and I think that it shows on the whole the fans are really good to the girls.”

6. Is coming away together like one big lark?
“Yeah, it’s amazing. This would be such a different story if we were solo artists. I don’t know if me personally, I’d be able to hack it if I were a solo artist; it’s a lot of time away from home but to have the other guys with you. It’s really nice. It makes everything just so much more fun, you know. ”
