Watch former One Direction singer Niall Horan perform his brand new single “Slow Hands” on the Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.

The new song has an unlikely influence. As Niall tells Billboard magazine, “Slow Hands,” co-written by Adele collaborator Tobias Jesso Jr., was inspired by Eagles member Don Henley’s solo hits like “Boys of Summer” and “Dirty Laundry.” Henley gave Niall this endorsement: “Niall is a solid guy whose focus is right where it ought to be: on songwriting. He’s got the Irish charm and a healthy, self-effacing sense of humor, which is an essential ­survival tool in this business. I think that Niall will evolve into a resonant, thoughtful voice for his generation.”
