Louis Tomlinson wants to create his own management company
The 29-year-old singer - who first rose to prominence as part of One Direction - has revealed via Twitter that he dreams of helping to develop and guide the next generation of music stars
9 March 2021
Louis - who has 35 million Twitter followers - wrote on the micro-blogging platform: "I always dreamed of having my own label, having an imprint never really worked for me because I still had to have someone else's blessing to sign people. People I believed in massively but unfortunately didn't fit the traditional pop role hence never doing the deals....

"So I've decided to put it out there in the world today. I'm going to start my own music management company to help develop new artists. Watch this space
"I just wanted to take the first step of actualising the idea but at this stage that's all this is. An idea!
"P.s. a management company not a label (sic)"
Last month, meanwhile, Louis revealed he hopes to provide fans with some new music later this year.
The pop star has been considering ideas for the follow-up to his debut solo album, 'Walls', and although he doesn't have any "concrete plans" to release his second full-length record just yet, Louis is "sure" something will come out before the end of 2021.
He tweeted: "I've been doing a lot of thinking about my next record. It's going to be special!"
Asked if he knows when his next LP will arrive, Louis replied: "No concrete plans because I don't need that pressure while I'm writing. I'm sure I will have something out this year but unlikely that will be the album. Who knows though!"
