Niall Horan Returns with ‘Nice To Meet Ya’ New Single And Video Released Today

Niall Horan returns today with ‘Nice To Meet Ya’, the first single from his forthcoming second album.

A piano-driven pop song with a soulful groove and bright hand percussion, ‘Nice To Meet Ya’ provides the perfect backdrop to Horan’s vocals and playful lyrics. Niall co-wrote the song with his longtime collaborator Julian Bunetta (Maroon 5, Jessie Ware), who also produced, Tobias Jesso, Jr. (Florence + the Machine, Adele) and Ruth-Anne Cunningham (John Legend, Pentatonix).

Niall Horan says,

“It’s been nearly two years since I released ‘Flicker’ and I can’t wait to get going again. Writing ‘Nice To Meet Ya,’ in particular, was a special one for me and I’m so excited to finally share it with everyone.”

The official video was directed by The Young Astronauts and shot in London.

Originally from Mullingar, Ireland, Niall first came to fame through The X Factor, where he was put together in the group, One Direction. Earlier this year he made a surprise guest appearance during Maren Morris’s performance at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

Niall released his debut album ‘Flicker’ in October 2017, which entered the Billboard 200 at No. 1, and the UK Charts at No.3, earning Platinum certification or greater in 18 countries.

In addition to surpassing three million in worldwide album sales and nearly 3.5 billion streams worldwide, it topped the iTunes Top Albums chart in 61 countries.

‘Flicker’ included the 2x Platinum single ‘This Town’, which has amassed over 800 million streams worldwide, and the 3x Platinum ‘Slow Hands’, which shot straight to No. 1 in 44 countries, reached the top spot on Billboard’s Mainstream Top 40 and surpassed 10 million in adjusted track sales globally with 1.5 billion streams worldwide.

Niall’s Flicker World Tour included sold-out dates in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Europe, Singapore, Japan, Brazil and Australia.
