His debut album Walls is set for release later this month.

And despite stepping out on his own with his first solo album, Louis Tomlinson still referenced his former One Direction band mates in his new track from the record.

The singer, 28, shared a clip of five men including himself walking towards a set of lights, with the figures baring a striking resemblance to the boy band stars.

Louis was filmed walking towards three men who appeared to represent Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Liam Payne and Zayn Malik in the video.

Lyrics from the track include 'nothing wakes you up like wakin' up alone', which could potentially reference the band's split in 2016, following Zayn's decision to walk away from the rest of the boys in 2015.

Louis has always been candid about his reluctance for the band to split and recently admitted in an interview with Telegraph Magazine that if it was up to him they would probably still be together.

Elsewhere in the video, Louis is clad in a khaki green jacket and a black hooded jacket which he teamed with black jeans while strolling through desert landscape.

 

Later on, Louise was dressed in a black polo neck and jacket as stood in the middle of a black and white circular dance floor surrounded by dancing couples.

The video release comes soon after Louis detailed how he has become a pillar of support for

his younger siblings following the deaths of his mother and sister.

The singer lost his mum Johannah Deakin in December 2016 after a battle with leukaemia, two years before his sister Felicite died of an overdose in March 2019.

Louis revealed that since the death of his mother he has been paying for his sisters Daisy and Phoebe, 16, to attend an 'expensive' private school outside Doncaster.

The Two Of Us hitmaker insisted he didn't want to be painted as a 'good guy' for helping his family and revealed that he finds 'strength' in being their for others.     

He sweetly admitted to the Telegraph Magazine: 'Without being too soppy, I like looking after people, it's cool'.

Louis said his latest strife involves trying to convince his younger sisters to stay on at school, which he confessed is a difficult feat considering their 'elitist' upbringing which largely differs from the childhood he and sister Lottie, 21, remember. 

The former One Direction star went on to discuss how the tragic loss of his mum helped him to understand how to communicate with his siblings better when his younger sister died.

He revealed: 'Both [deaths] felt very individual, and hit me with a big impact... but I think dealing with the family, how I can be there for them, that was a lot easier the second time because the first time I was grieving and I didn't know what to say.'
