Who's Who on Two Of Us?
Fans of Louis Tomlinson have spent the past year sitting on the metaphorical edge of their seats, waiting and wishing for new music. So on February 16, when we announced that a new track titled Two Of Us had been registered on Germany’s Performance Rights Organisation’s (GEMA) repertoire, the fanbase went wild. #TwoOfUs trended worldwide, fan curated projects launched, and genuine tears formed within minutes, an indication of the collective jubilation.
As always, fans immediately started searching for any information about the track and who Tomlinson had worked with. Here’s the Who’s Who on Two Of Us.

Mark Crew, one half of the production team, is a name we haven’t seen associated with Louis prior to Two Of Us, but we couldn’t be happier knowing he worked on this track.
In 2013 he co-founded Best Laid Plans Records and Best Laid Plans Music with Dan Smith, and Dan Priddy, who coincidentally is his prodcution partner, and the other half of Two Of Us’ production team.
Mark has established himself as a world class producer and the success of his credits proceed him. In addition to his most recent work with Louis, Crew has produced music for the likes of Rag ‘N’ Bone Man (who he signed to his label in 2013), on his award winning album ‘Human’, Tears For Fears, Katy Perry, James Arthur and Bastille.

Aside from Louis’ Two Of Us, Dan has worked on music for One OK Rock, Rag ‘N’ Bone Man, The Wombats and Bastille. He has worked on many projects alongside Mark Crew and together they make a powerhouse team.
