A long, long time ago, One Direction were on their first headline tour as little puppies with great voices, wearing a lot of baggy khakis and stripes. Actually, it was less than four years ago. Hard to believe, right?
The setlist of the ‘Up All Night Tour’ in 2011-2012 included a cover of the Kings of Leon song ‘Use Somebody.’
Back in 2012 while working on One Direction’s second album, song writer/producer Carl Falk told Examiner.com, “[Harry’s] got a bit of a raspy voice. It’s a good complement to have to some of the others who are a bit more ‘clean.'” He then went on to add, “[Louis’s] a good complement to Harry’s raspy voice. Their voices sound really good together.”
Fans also noticed the beautiful pairing of Louis’s clean voice with Harry’s raspier one, pulling out a clip of their two vocals from one of those old performance of ‘Use Somebody.’
One Direction’s new songwriters and producers didn’t miss this special match-up either when writing their fourth album. In the song ‘Where Do Broken Hearts Go,’ written by a handful of people including Harry, Louis and Harry’s voices play off each other beautifully. Now, on the On The Road Again Tour, we get to hear it live.
When Louis sings, “Tell me where you’re hiding out,” “Come on baby ’cause I need you now,” and, “Tell me ’cause I’m ten feet down,” Harry answers each time with, “Where do broken hearts go?”
It’s great to see and hear the special connection the two of them had back in the early days being recognized again.
