During his One Direction days, Louis wrote music about Eleanor, because of course you write about your feelings. "Love You Goodbye," which was on the band's last album, Made in the A.M., was about his breakup with Eleanor, which Louis briefly mentioned on Good Morning America in 2015. However, it's hard to write truly personal music when you're part of a group, so it wasn't until Louis's solo career that he could truly write about Eleanor. In a 2017 interview, he told The Sun, "There's another song on the album called 'Always You' and it's kind of about my story of traveling the world and just being a f*cking idiot and going, 'Of course it was always you.' Here's the thing, when you listen to my album, you won't have to read between the lines. You'll know what's about Eleanor, you'll know what's about me, you'll know what's about the fans, you know it might hint a little bit about the relationship with my mum."
