In Horan’s time away from One Direction, he worked on music inspired by some of his favorite musicians, such as Bob Dylan and Simon & Garfunkel. He described his new album as “more upbeat but that kind of vibe — the acoustic guitar, that kind of feel to it, nice strings.”
Eight months later, Horan released a new single, “Slow Hands,” which hit number one on the Billboard charts the same day it was released: May 4, 2017.
“On the Loose”
“Seeing Blind (featuring Maren Morris)”
“Too Much to Ask”
“Since We’re Alone”
“You and Me”
The Target edition of the album comes with three bonus songs, called “On My Own,” “Mirrors” and “The Tide.”
On top of Horan’s album release, he is currently on a solo tour called “Flicker Sessions World Tour,” where he will perform in the United States, Canada, New Zealand and Australia. Horan is touring along side country star Maren Morris, who he also collaborated with on a song for “Flicker.” The venues are much smaller than when he performed with One Direction, however each of the stops on tour sold out within several minutes.
Although it is a challenge for Directioners to witness Niall Horan becoming a popular solo artist, his fans have shown endless support for his upcoming music and tour.
