Louis Tomlinson performs during the 2017 iHeartRadio Music Festival at T-Mobile Arena on Sept. 23, 2017 in Las Vegas. 

Louis Tomlinson has officially gone his own direction with his first all-solo track titled "Just Like You," which arrived at midnight local time on Thursday (Oct. 12). Tomlinson has released two singles prior to this with Steve Aoki ("Just Hold On") and Bebe Rexha ("Back to You"), but "Just Like You" is all Tomlinson's voice assuring the listener that he's "just like you/ Even though my problems look nothing like yours do." 

"Just Like You" is off of Tomlinson's debut solo album, which does not yet have a title or a release date. 

On Wednesday, Tomlinson took to Twitter to tell fans, "So I wrote a song called Just Like You a few months ago. After a few conversations with the label I told them that I wanted to release it. 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!" 

And then, with the song just one-hour old in the world, Tomlinson again relayed through Twitter that a lyric video will be coming soon.
