Louis Tomlinson has just released a brand-new single called We Made It.

The guitar-driven, drum-heavy track dropped on Thursday. It’s the third single from the 27-year-old’s newly announced album, Walls.

We Made It was released with a music video and the artwork and tracklisting for Walls, which will be Tomlinson’s debut solo album.

Since the disbanding of the much-beloved British boy band One Direction, Tomlinson has been relatively inactive in his music career.
