Louis said: "We can all talk about grief a little bit more. That’s why I feel good about the lyrics because I could speak about it publicly.

"[My mum] was obsessed with me playing piano, and they said, 'what about playing the opening verse?', and normally I might have said no but knowing that she liked that idea, I kind of just zoned into that and just went for it and pulled it off."

Speaking about being a dad to his three-year-old son Freddie, Louis said: "It’s the responsibility side of things that has made the process a bit easier for me.

"When I’m with him it’s just one of those things where you feel so much love, it doesn’t matter what’s going on that’s all you’re thinking about.
