Niall Horan releases “Heaven” announces 3rd studio album
Niall Horan released his new single “Heaven” today (Feb 17), his first new solo material in almost three years. Niall wrote the soulful, track with John Ryan and Joel Little, who also produced, and Tobias Jesso Jr. (Adele, Sia) during a trip to Southern California’s Mojave Desert.
“There’s so much pressure for people to hit certain milestones by a certain age – you get married at this age, buy a house at that age, have kids at some other age,” says Niall in a press statement. “But I’ve never conformed to those ideas, and so I wanted to write about how we all should just focus on enjoying our lives and doing what feels right, instead of worrying about what might be expected of us.”
Niall announces his third solo album, ‘The Show’

“This album is a piece of work I’m so proud of and now it’s time to pass it over to you to go and make it your own,” Niall shared in an Instagram post. “Thank you so much for being there for me all this time and I can’t wait to share the next couple of years of this new era with you. I’ve missed you all so much. It’s good to be back.”
