Why Louis Tomlinson Took Two Years to Release Song Honoring His Late Mother

Louis Tomlinson has just released his first single of 2019 and what’s undoubtedly the most personal and vulnerable song of his career.

“Two of Us” is a love letter to his late mother Johannah, who lost her battle with Leukemia in 2016.

"Musically, I almost needed to get this song off my chest," he says. "Writing is a part of therapy and in a way, I feel like I’d been avoiding writing this because I knew I only had one chance to get it right."

Adding, "If 'Two of Us' can help just one other person who’s going through the tough time that I went through, then that would make me really happy."
