Louis Tomlinson is all in on the rock thing in the video for his “Kill My Mind” single. The high-energy clip directed by the aptly named Charlie Lightening (Paul McCartney, Liam Gallagher) that debuted on Friday morning (Sept. 13) finds Tomlinson blazing through the uptempo track in a packed club in front of an enthusiastic audience that includes a particular blonde woman that the camera seems to love.
The live scenes are intercut with images of a man bombing down a country road on a motorcycle, leading one to believe that said road hog might be Louis and the woman might be his video love interest. But that’s where the plot twist comes in, as the man is revealed to be a buzz-cut rider excited to check out a Louis Tom show with his crush. As Tomlinson hypes the crowd with his Gallagher-esque stage moves on the song the former One Direction star co-wrote and co-produced with Jamie Hartman, the couple hop on the man’s bike and take off.
And that’s where the plot twist comes in. Watch the video below to see how it ends, and stick around after the surprise for a sneak preview of Tomlinson’s next chapter in the couple’s love story. “Kill My Mind” is the second song released to date from Tomlinson’s upcoming debut solo album, following the pop ballad “Two of Us.” The release date and title of the album has not yet been announced.
