Stream Niall Horan's Debut Album 'Flicker'

First Zayn Malik, then Harry Styles. Now Niall Horan has his own solo album. 

The former One Direction singer finally dropped Flicker, his debut LP which includes the singles “This Town,” “Slow Hands” and the new release, “Too Much To Ask.” 

Flicker is the result of a year-and-a-half-long writing and recording process. “It’s something that I’ve worked really hard on and I’m incredibly proud of it,” he tweeted overnight. "This is the first time I’ve put my thoughts and emotions on paper and then onto record and it feels really good.”

To celebrate the release, Apple produced the documentary On The Record: Flicker, which features interviews with the Irishman and behind-the-scenes footage from recording sessions and acoustic rehearsals.
