Louis tweeted his appreciation saying, “Thank you to everyone single person involved in today’s release. I feel so invigorated!” and “Most importantly to my fans, honestly today was a moment for us.

After hearing from fans around the world, Louis Tomlinson told fans yesterday that “I’m always trying to think of new ways to involve you all.” After a contest for UK fans was announced to appear in a video for Kill My Mind, fans outside of the UK were upset at yet another UK-only contest. A previous UK-only contest included meeting Louis and watching him film the Two Of Us video. Louis tweeted, “I hear your frustration about opportunities for fans outside of the UK. It’s something I’m reminding management and the label of over and over again. You have my word that from here on in it will feel more inclusive!”

Louis Tomlinson talked about his fans during the 1883 Magazine interview. Here’s a selection of what he said about his fans:
I: Do you ever have to deal with any overly obsessive fans, as in groupies?
L: I mean, there are fans everywhere I go. But you kind of start recognizing faces. In London, for example ,there are about 20 individuals who are always somehow there when I’m doing something. And they don’t know how much confidence that gives me. Like, when I do a TV show - and I’m scared of that - and the minute I see a familiar face of my fans, I feel like what I do is important. My side stuff felt like a leap of faith to me and it’s all driven by the belief of the fans who keep me going.
I: So without fans, you wouldn’t have done a solo career?
L: Oh, no! When I was in the band, everything went so amazingly. It’s very hard to have a relative way of an example of where you stand in the industry. So the fans constantly gave me reinforcement.
I: If there hadn’t been that incredible support, where would you have seen yourself after the band’s hiatus decision?
L: In my head, I would have just gotten better at songwriting, and write for other people. I hadn’t given it too much thought because us as a band didn’t have too much time to think about what we were going to do. But honestly, it sounds so generic, I wouldn’t have had confidence without my fans. Now I feel empowered and it’s giving me strength. You find yourself in these do-or-die situations, and it’s been amazing so far.
I: How did you deal with the additional grief over the past few months?
L: I’m so grateful for all of my fans worldwide for their love and support, but especially over the last few months. They are always there for me and I appreciate every single one of them.

Are we talking about a tour this year?” to which Louis replied, “I think next year, which I’m really excited about. You know obviously we spent 70 per cent of our time in One Direction on the road, so it’s been a while for me to do a tour.”
