At The X Factor UK's press conference and photocall, Louis Tomlinson confirmed his excitement for his forthcoming debut solo album. Stopping to converse with fans, he said his album is "ready to go", and that he plans to release it "as soon as he can".
The confirmation comes after Louis was officially announced as an X Factor UK judge for the talent show's fifteenth series. His massively successful band, One Direction, gave X Factor its highest ever ratings upon being formed in 2010. It's impossible to ignore Louis' indelible impact on the show's history, and his return is sure to be the high point of this year's series.
Speaking at the press conference, Louis laid rumors to rest, saying: "People were worried I was going to give up music. My release schedule actually hasn’t changed."
