Louis Tomlinson cuts a casual figure in a cable knit jumper in New York

He recently confessed he still 'loves' his One Direction band mates.

And following his sweet admission about his pals, Louis Tomlinson cut a casual figure as he was spotted stepping out in New York City on Friday.

The singer, 28, who has just dropped his debut album Walls, rocked a chunky cable knit jumper and a black North Face jacket with a fur-trimmed hood, as he was swarmed by fans while exiting the building.

Two Of Us hitmaker Louis teamed his ensemble with a pair of plain black straight leg denim jeans, and some all black trainers to complete his look.

His appearance comes after he admitted he 'loves' his One Direction band mates, as he hit out at the idea of members 'chatting s***' about a group once they'd split for 'cool points.'

Speaking to Rolling Stone Magazine about his debut album Walls on Wednesday, Louis gushed about his time with Harry Styles, Liam Payne, and Niall Horan, and former member Zayn Malik.

The Kill My Mind singer is 'super proud' about his stint with the boy band and would never say anything bad about the group as he thinks it looks 'desperate' when solo artists slam their beginnings. 

After Zayn repeatedly admitted he isn't a fan of 1D's music and Liam has admitted being in the group could be 'toxic' and hinted he didn't get on with everyone, Louis was asked why he's never complained about the band.

He explained: 'I absolutely f***ing love the band. I'm super proud about where I've come from. At the end of the day, I'm from Doncaster, and the band gave me such a nice opportunity.
