Niall Horan of One Direction has been keeping busy since he and his group members went on hiatus earlier this year. Last month he surprised his fans when he introduced his fans to his new acoustic sound on his new solo debut with the single “This Town.” The tune was officially released on September 29th as part of his new deal with Universal Music Group’s Capitol Records.
Horan gave a stripped-down performance of “This Town” in a new “1 Mic 1 Take” video that premiered that day on VEVO. The clip, which was filmed in the historic Capitol Studios in Hollywood, CA, may be viewed above.
Greg Kurstin (Kelly Clarkson, Adele, Sia, Ellie Goulding) produced the track, which Horan wrote with Jamie Scott, Mike Needle and Daniel Bryer. His fans may remember that all of those songwriters previously collaborated with Niall on One Direction’s 2015 album, Made In The AM.
The studio version of ‘This Town’, released via Capitol Records US, is available now across Spotify, iTunes and Apple Music.
