Louis Tomlinson Says He "Didn't See a Way Back" After One Direction Broke Up: "It Was Hard For Me"

Louis Tomlinson is telling his full story — including the truth about what it was really like walking away from One Direction at the height of the group's fame. Tomlinson is the subject of a new documentary called "All of Those Voices," which explores the aftermath of One Direction's breakup in 2016, told from his perspective.

"I thought for me, it was the band or nothing," Tomlinson says in the trailer. "It was hard for me to imagine myself on my own. I didn't see a way back — not even musically, but just to do anything." Of course, he did go on to launch a solo career, and the documentary explores his journey back to music following the band's dramatic breakup.

"[T]his has been something I've been working on for years," the singer said in a social media post on the day of the trailer's release. "I'm really excited to finally put it out into the world. I've said it a million times but I'm lucky enough to have the greatest fans an artist could wish for, and as they always go above and beyond for me, I wanted to share my story 'in my own words'."

"From the highs of superstardom to the lows of personal tragedy, Louis's story is one of resilience and determination. The film explores his journey from a member of One Direction to a solo artist, capturing the challenges and triumphs that defined his path," the film's official description reads. "Since the acclaimed release of his debut album 'Walls' and documenting the creation of his chart-topping 2022 album 'Faith In The Future', the film shows a side of Louis that fans have never seen before, as he grapples with the pressures of fame and the weight of his own voice."
