Louis Tomlinson just couldn't hold it in any longer, so early on Wednesday morning (Oct. 11) he took to Twitter to let fans know that soon -- real soon -- they'll be able to hear a new single titled "Just Like You."

"So I wrote a song called 'Just Like You' a few months ago," Tomlinson tweeted. "After a few conversations with the label I told them that I wanted to release it." 

He continued to peel back the details of the song in a series of tweets: "My next single will be a bit later this year but I wanted to share this with you now. This is for you lot ! #JustLikeYou The song will go live on the usual platforms at midnight local time. NZ and Aus be ready. This is one of my favourites from the album. Conceptually I think it's sums me up! This song is for you 🙂 #JustLikeYou." 

All the way back in July, Tomlinson told The BBC his strong feelings toward the track. One of the questions he was asked in a lengthy Q & A was what he had been writing about on his forthcoming album. "There's one song I'm really attached to called 'Just Like You,' which is all about this view of celebrities that we're impenetrable and almost not human, but fundamentally we all have the same problems. 

"Heartbreak feels the same, loss feels the same, all these feelings are the same for all of us. Mine just took a load different to, maybe, Tom who works in the chippy from nine to five."
