Telegraph reports, Louis Tomlinson has become the fifth and final member of One Direction to sign a solo record deal.
According to a report by Variety, the deal is with Epic Records, which, like Simon Cowell's Syco Records, comes under the umbrella of Sony Music.
The news comes just three days after the 25-year-old shared a snippet of his first solo single, Back to You, since his collaboration with Steve Aoki on the song Just Hold On at the end of 2016. The new single is due out on July 21.
Each member of One Direction has signed to a different individual label, with Harry Styles and Zayn Malik signed to Columbia Records and RCA Records, respectively (both of which also fall under the Sony umbrella) while Niall Horan and Liam Payne are with Capitol and Republic (which are owned by Universal Music Group).
