Downtown Music Publishing has signed a new multi-territory music publishing administration pact with songwriter and former One Direction-er Niall Horan, currently climbing the charts with his second solo single "Slow Hands."
After its debut May 4, "Hands" entered the Billboard Hot 100 at No. 90, with little less than a day in the tracking week. In only its second week, the track jumped all the way to No. 52. His highest peaking song to date is his solo debut, "This Town," which topped out at No. 20 in January.
In a recent interview with Carson Daly, Horan said fans should expect his first full-length album by "end of fall, start of winter." Earlier this week he released a lyric video for "Hands."
