LOUIS TOMLINSON DROPS NEW SINGLE ‘WALLS’ CO-WRITTEN & PRODUCED BY JAMIE HARTMAN
Former One Direction band member Louis Tomlinson released his latest single “Walls,” today. Idolator calls the soaring orchestral pop cut, co-written and produced by Reservoir’s Jamie Hartman, a “string-led gem with a thoughtful message” that deals with “overcoming obstacles between him and a loved one.” MTV further notes the introspective single shows Tomlinson “crack[ing] the sadness open and lets a little light in by revealing that the hard times have made him a stronger man.”
A cinematic music video for “Walls” was also released, which Rolling Stone describes as opening in a “barren landscape, where the former One Direction singer encounters a mysterious door, walks through a series of glass panes and sits on a chair perched halfway up a brick wall,” then “the imagery becomes more surreal… as Tomlinson sprawls out on the floor of a ballroom near dancing guests and wanders through a crowd of masked strangers. At the song’s climax, he and his band perform on a glowing platform as the light dims.”
“Walls” follows Jamie Hartman’s previous collaboration with Tomlinson on “Kill My Mind,” as well as collabs with Celeste on “Stop This Flame” and “Strange,” and James Arthur’s “From Me To You I Hate Everybody,” among others.
