Singer, heartthrob, soccer fan and occasional player. Despite that already bustling schedule, Louis Tomlinson is adding a new gig to his resume. The One Direction singer has confirmed tha he has started his own record label.

The label is an imprint of Simon Cowell's Syco label. And, yes, Tomlinson reportedly has already someone signed to it, X Factor UK finalist Jack Walton.

"This is something I've wanted to do for some time," Tomlinson told The Sun, via Teen Vogue. "To be given the opportunity to potentially give new artists a platform is an incredible feeling. I hope to sign some really exciting new artists down the line."

Looks like now is a good time to start getting those demos together and sending them his way.

In addition to his new duties as the head of his own record label, the guys of One Direction have recently started work on their next album (and first without Zayn Malik, who left the group last month).
