Niall Horan’s “Slow Hands” video makes it all look so easy like everything just fell together. And sometimes writing great songs does happen just that easily. Jamie Scott confided to Billboard that Niall, Jamie, Mike Needle, and Daniel Byer wrote “This Town” in about an hour.
Niall Horan’s “This Town” was amazing but perhaps underrated by music journalists. Yes it was simple, and Horan was the first to acknowledge that, but “This Town” was at the same time an amazingly authentic Irish folk ballad. The song is beautiful and timeless in a way that only an authentic folk ballad can be.
Harry Styles isn’t the only artist from One Direction to be authentic. Niall Horan has authenticity in spades and showcases that authenticity perfectly in both “This Town” and “Slow Hands.” Further, his vocals are perfect, and that perfect sound does seem to come very naturally to the “Slow Hands” singer.
Niall Horan fans are so eager to hear more from him after hearing “Slow Hands.” So when is the Niall Horan Album coming out, and what is taking so long? After “Slow Hands” and “This Town,” fans will want to hear more.
“Slow Hands” is hot and sexy while “This Town” was gentle and romantic. Overall, Niall Horan showed an amazingly different side of himself and his art with “Slow Hands.” Now more than ever fans, hungry for more Niall Horan, want to know when Niall Horan’s album is coming out.
Niall Horan is doing a lot more than just writing songs. There are steps to the procedure of making an album. The first step is for collaborators to get on the same page.
Jamie Scott explained he, Niall Horan, Mike Needle and Daniel Byer hung out for a few hours before starting to write. That is really one of the most important steps according to Jamie.
“I want great music from great artists and for that to happen, there has to be a level of honesty in a session where you feel free to say things without worrying about anything. Great music comes out of a room where people trust each other, whether it’s a producer and engineer or producer and a writer. Everyone in that room has to be on the same page.”
Once Niall Horan and any collaborators included write songs like “This Town” and “Slow Hands,” those songs have to be recorded, mixed, and probably re-recorded in spots in order to get the best possible takes. All that takes a lot of time.
Niall Horan thought he might be close to completion at one point earlier this year but later decided the tweaking of his debut album was going to take longer. It works like proofreading a novel. The time to correct everything and make changes is before handing the work over to be printed, not after.
Niall Horan released “Slow Hands” to hold fans over until he’s ready to turn his album over to be produced, and fans are glad he did. “Slow Hands” is amazing.
Niall Horan does have an approximate date for the album’s release though. It’s just a bit further away than those hardcore One Direction fans who love Niall would like.
Niall Horan is quoted on Billboard from an interview with Carson Daily related to the “Slow Hands” release, Daily asked when the new Niall Horan album is coming out.
“End of fall, start of winter, I guess. I’ve decided to ride it out, see what happens, and then kind of let people know when I’m ready to go.”
Niall Horan told Carson Daily he felt he was finally getting to do things as he had always wanted to. Niall Horan’s new album will be completely his and “Slow Hands” is just a sample of what’s in store on the new 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. But this time it’s just completely me, so I get to do what I want when I want, really.”
Like Harry Styles, and Zayn Malik, Niall Horan too feels a need to create his own music, most artists feel this way. That doesn’t mean they no longer like their bands or their band mates it just means they need time to experiment with their own music and to perfect their art on their own.
Niall Horan talked about his former band mates and told Carson daily that he and Harry Styles were not so far apart on their musical tastes. After listening to Harry Styles’s album and Horan’s second single “Slow Hands,” there is a fair amount of common ground there.
“I know them all very well, and I know what music they’re into, so when I hear what they’re releasing, it’s no shock to me. Me and Harry have similar taste, maybe his is a bit more rockier than mine, but it’s great watching everyone do their own thing. It’s brilliant.”
Niall Horan’s “Slow Hands” and “This Town” are lovely songs, that show a promising prelude to a hit album. The “Slow Hands” singer said previously that “This Town” was his simplest song, and that means the rest are more complex, musically speaking.
Harry Styles is basking in the glow of a recently released album that One Direction fans love. Still, One Direction fans are eager to hear Niall Horan’s album, especially after hearing “Slow Hands.”
While Niall Horan’s “This Town” was clearly Irish Folk, with a clean timeless melody and beautiful lyrics, “Slow Hands” shows a sexier, soft rock side of Horan.
Liam Payne has been very supportive of Niall Horan’s efforts. Liam even came out to watch Niall’s solo gig at 102.7 KIIS-FM’s Wango Tango. Liam Payne and Niall Horan hung out backstage. Liam Payne also has a single coming out soon according to E Online.
