Niall Horan 'This Town': One Direction Star’s New Solo Song Gets A Surprise Release


Niall Horan fans have been given a surprise treat, in the form of the unexpected release of his first solo single ‘This Town’ (which you can check out above).

The former One Direction singer has signed a deal with Capitol Records, and is the first of the four members of the band - let it go Zayn Malik fans, he left - to reveal their solo efforts.

<strong>It's good to have him back, isn't it?</strong>

Niall has penned the song himself with the help of three co-writers, Jamie Scott, Mike Needle and Daniel Bryer.

And naturally, he also plays guitar in the accompanying video (Niall with a guitar is our second favourite Niall, just for the record. First place obviously goes to boardgame-loving ‘Night Changes’ Niall).

As you can imagine, the surprise release has gone down very well with fans:

Since 1D announced their split hiatus last year, each band member has been doing something a little different, with Harry Styles is set to make his big screen debut in Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dunkirk’.

Big Payno has also signed his own solo deal - and is very loved with Cheryl Fernandez-Versini - while Louis Tomlinson is thought to be working behind-the-scenes on a number of musical projects.
