Louis Tomlinson has given his fans a reason to be excited. He announced an upcoming new single called “Two of Us” and teased lyrics in two separate Instagram posts.

The title post features cover art with a cool black-and-white head shot of the former One Direction member. The caption reads “#TwoOfUs//7th March. Link in bio.”

The lyric post contains a video which shows Tomlinson writing words with a marker on a blank piece of paper. They read, “It’s been a minute since I called you.” Soft piano notes can be heard in the background.

Tomlinson wrote the song about his late mother, Johannah Deakin, who lost her battle with Leukemia in 2016. He spoke about the emotional track in a recent interview with House of Solo, reported by Daily Mail.

“I just feel like musically, I almost needed to get this song off my chest. People say writing is a part of therapy and in a way, I feel like I’d been avoiding writing this song because I knew I only had one chance to get it right," Louis said, adding "I don’t mean to be too soppy about it, but if Two of Us can help just one other person who's going through the tough time that I went through, then that would make me really happy."

“Two Of Us” will mark the first new music from Tomlinson since his Bebe Rexha collab single “Back to You.” Fans have patiently waited for new material and continue to stream comments of love and support to him on social media since he broke the news.

Tomlinson kept busy last year as a fan-favorite new judge on “The X Factor UK” alongside fellow newbie judges Robbie Williams and his wife, Ayda Williams, and show boss Simon Cowell.

As previously reported, Cowell has big changes planned for the upcoming season of the UK’s popular reality singing competition. It has not yet been confirmed if Tomlinson or The Williams’ are going to return to the judging panel, but that’s what Cowell hopes.

Diehard 1D fans are still hoping for some sort of future One Direction reunion. However, none of the group members have suggested it will happen.

Tomlinson recruited his former band mate Liam Payne to help as a mentor last year on “The X Factor UK’s” Judges' Houses round. Both Harry Styles and Niall Horan have released successful debut solo albums and toured extensively to support them.

Styles teased he’s working on new material when he interviewed Timothee Chalamat for i-D. And, Horan recently performed a new Julia Michaels collab “What a Time” on “The Late Late Show.”

Tomlinson has not yet released any details of an upcoming album. Check out his posts below and stay tuned to AXS for more on Louis Tomlinson.
