Niall Horan announces tour after releasing new single


Maren Morris is scheduled to go on tour with Niall Horan for his 2018 Flicker World Tour.

Elsewhere, Horan told Nick Grimshaw on Radio 1's breakfast show on Friday morning (September 15th) that his debut album, Flicker, will be released in October. The One Direction star previously said of the album, "There was a lot of 1D stuff I wrote that was along the lines of Fleetwood Mac, stuff like that, and I hear myself in them songs now sometimes".

The 24-year-old Irish singer marked the announcement by releasing a track off the album entitled "Too Much to Ask", a piano-led ballad in which Horan, his voice turning soulful, mourns the end of a relationship.

One Direction fans, your wait is over.

We should probably just be happy he didn't title the album "Clint", and leave it at that.

Horan is now embarking on a series of intimate live dates, what he's called the "Flicker Sessions" tour.

Niall also announced that he will be hitting the road in 2018 for a new tour to promote his new music. On Twitter, the singer explained that he's been waiting a long time to share this song because it's "very special" to him and one of his favorites from the record.

Horan will release Flicker on October 20.

According to Billboard, Niall's previous songs, both debuted on the Billboard Hot 100. He launched his solo career with the singles "This Town" and "Slow Hands".

Horan is scheduled to visit other European cities for the rest of his tour.
