Niall Horan has unveiled a new single from his forthcoming debut solo album, which will be released via Capitol. It’s the second song he released since One Direction announced their hiatus in 2015.
On “Slow Hands,” Horan takes a turn from the more reflective, slowed down “This Town” and goes for a more muted sound. Above a stomp-and-clap beat and muted guitar, Horan allows his lower register to showcase his more seductive side on the track which is reminiscent of early Aughts hits from Jack Johnson and John Mayer.
Niall Horan has stepped out from One Direction, emerging as a solo artist in his own right, along with fellow bandmates Harry Styles and Zayn Malik. And after the major success of his first single, “This Town,” which he dropped in September 2016, Niall has announced the release of his second single.
Niall took to Twitter on Monday, teasing “Slow Hands” and telling the world that it would be released on Thursday, May 4. Though we don’t have to wait that long to hear the song for ourselves, we do appreciate every bit of trivia and insight the singer has to offer.
