Niall Horan has announced his brand-new album ‘The Show’ The album, his third solo album and first since 2020’s chart-topping ‘Heartbreak Weather’, will be released on June 9 and he’s just premiered the project’s lead single, ‘Heaven’.
The Irish crooner wrote the soulful, shimmering track with John Ryan and Joel Little, who also produced, and Tobias Jesso Jr. during an idyllic trip to Southern California’s Mojave Desert. In a striking contrast to its gorgeous convergence of airy harmonies and glistening synth, ‘Heaven’ ultimately delivers a defiant refusal to play along with the arbitrary rules that society imposes.
“There’s so much pressure for people to hit certain milestones by a certain age – you get married at this age, buy a house at that age, have kids at some other age,” says Horan. “But I’ve never conformed to those ideas, and so I wanted to write about how we all should just focus on enjoying our lives and doing what feels right, instead of worrying about what might be expected of us.”
The song comes ahead of Niall’s new stint as a new coach for the upcoming 23rd season of ‘The Voice’.
