Louis Tomlinson took to Twitter on Wednesday (April 17) to break his silence following the tragic death of his younger sister, Félicité.

"Just wanted to thank everyone for their lovely words over the past couple of weeks," the One Direction singer tweeted before revealing he was back in the studio.

Tomlinson’s sister died suddenly last month at age 18 from a suspected cardiac arrest. The loss came just weeks after the pop star released “Two of Us,” a touching ballad about the death of his mother Johannah Deakin, who died in December 2016 after a battle with leukemia. The song will serve as the lead single from Tomlinson’s forthcoming debut solo album.
