One Direction was one of the most popular boy bands until Zayn Malik departed from the group. Since then, the rest of the members started to pursue solo careers. Louis Tomlinson was a primary songwriter in the band. He recently revealed how he feels about the band’s first album.

Louis recently appeared on Smallzy’s Surgery podcast where he spoke about the early days of One Direction. The podcast was coincidently recorded on the twelve-year anniversary of when the band was first formed. The singer said 1d’s first album was lackluster.

Twelve years ago today the band got formed, but the first album was sh*t anyway

Louis dropped his solo debut album Walls in 2020. He noted that his solo career needs a lot of work as well. He isn’t happy with how he has done on his own so far. With One Direction’s success, Louis feels he has a lot of pressure to deliver a quality album.

There’s still pressure obviously for me to deliver a good record.

Trying to find my feet coming out of a band as big as One Direction.

One Direction’s debut album, Up All Night, was an instant hit. With 4.5 million copies sold, the album topped the charts in sixteen countries and became the third greatest selling album of 2012.
