Niall Horan has taken to social media to announce his new single and his long-awaited debut solo album Flicker, set for release in the UK by Virgin EMI on October 20.
The single Too Much To Ask is one of the first songs penned for the album by Niall with his long-time collaborator Jamie Scott, who has also written with the likes of Jessie Ware, Michael Kiwanuka and The Vamps.
Too Much To Ask immediately topped Spotify’s New Music Friday UK, with Niall Horan the cover star of the playlist. The single has been flying up the iTunes charts, entering the Top 5 and earning a place on the iTunes homepage.
Too Much To Ask follows Horan’s global smash Slow Hands, which has been certificated Gold in the UK, had 900m streams worldwide, and been named one of the “Best Songs of 2017 So Far” by Billboard.
Niall is currently on his Flicker Sessions world tour where he has been playing on the world's most intimate stages. He recently played London’s Shepherd’s Bush which sold out in under a minute and won him big critical praise. Fans not only have a new album to look forward to as world arena tour has been hinted at, with dates in the US, Canada and Australia already announced.
The One Direction star launched his solo career with Top 3 hit This Town, followed by Slow Hands, with both tracks achieving Platinum certification in the US where he is signed to Capitol Records. He has been honoured with numerous awards throughout 2017, including People’s Choice, Teen Choice, Radio Disney Music and iHeartRadio MMVA awards
