Niall Horan today gives fans another taste of his upcoming third album ‘The Show’ with the release of his new single ‘Meltdown’. Pre-order The Show on vinyl here:

‘Meltdown’ is a feverish anthem that perfectly captures the frenzy of anxiety, then twists the track’s chorus into a moment of sweet reassurance for his fans (“When it all melts down, I’ll be there”). Niall wrote the infectious track with John Ryan and Joel Little, who also produced, and Amy Allen.

With songs like 'Meltdown' Niall illuminates the driving force behind his more intentional approach to songwriting: a heartfelt desire to provide his fans with the same sense of catharsis that he unfailingly finds in music. “Whenever I’m having some kind of issue, the easiest thing is to sit at the piano and let it all out, and it’s not until I listen back that I realize, ‘Jesus, that was honest,’” he explains.

A deeply felt meditation on everything from mental health to the infinite complexity and uncertainty of love, Niall’s upcoming album ‘The Show’ (released June 9th), is an endlessly spellbinding statement on following your heart to its absolute truth. Esquire Magazine says: “The Show includes some of Horan’s most vulnerable songwriting. Composed primarily on the piano, this album is an intimate reflection of his life as of late…”

Fans who pre-order the digital album will instantly receive 'Meltdown' and the first single, "Heaven'.

‘Heaven’ was a No.1 airplay hit in the UK, and the highest new entry on both the Spotify Global Chart and Spotify US Chart. It also achieved the highest-volume streaming day of Niall's solo career thus far. Rolling Stone declared, “Niall Horan’s certified lover boy era has commenced.” Billboard noted, “‘Heaven’…reaches for eternal love with a vocal elasticity and guitar chug that play off each other with ease.”

Originally from Mullingar, Ireland, Niall has sold over 80 million records and toured the globe multiple times as part of the iconic One Direction. His full-length solo debut 'Flicker' entered the Billboard 200 at No. 1 in October 2017 and contained the 3x RIAA Platinum single 'Slow Hands' and the 2x RIAA Platinum' This Town'. The album hit the top 10 in 20 countries total. With combined global streams surpassing eight billion, 'Flicker' has gone Platinum in five countries (including the U.S.) and Gold in additional seven countries. 'Heartbreak Weather' followed in 2020 and topped the U.K.’s Official Albums chart and Billboard’s Top Album Sales tally. Niall joined NBC’s The Voice this season as a new coach in the USA.
